September's Rotary focus is Basic Education and Literacy. Below are just some of our club's initiatives.
Literacy Day/Month – Fill all the “little
libraries” in the community with new books and give books to YMCA and The Boys
and Girls Club.
Laws of Life Essay project - Encourage
creative writing by hosting an essay writing contest for high school students.
Students are asked to write an essay on character and value and how it applies
to the student’s life.
SOUNS - SOUNS is a
program developed by Montessori and championed by Brenda Erickson to help
children read earlier and better. Our Rotary Club provides SOUNS kits wherever
Character Counts - Character Counts is an
educational and character development program in which Rotarians discuss the
six Character Pillars with students at The Vashti Center, Marguerite Neel
Williams Boys and Girls Club, the Thomasville Community Resource Center and the
Thomasville City Schools' Scott Elementary School. Each month focuses on a
different character trait. Two Rotarians meet with the students to discuss how
the trait of the month has impacted their personal and professional lives. The
students are then involved in a discussion about how this trait could apply in
their lives and the difference it could make.
Student of the Month - Our
Club recognizes students each month for academic and technology achievements.
Advanced Education Scholarships - The Rotary Club of Thomasville awards five $1,000
scholarships for advanced education to deserving students from Thomasville High
School, The Scholars Academy, Thomasville Central High School, Bishop Hall
Charter School and Brookwood High School.
