Rotary Club of Dearborn
Each year the Rotary Club of Dearborn, through the Dearborn Rotary Foundation, awards vocational scholarships to Dearborn Public School students.  Candidates are selected for scholarships of $1,500 each.  The scholarships honor Otto J. Rowen, a former Dearborn Rotarian, who was an industrial arts teacher at Fordson High School and later became principal at Woodworth Junior High School in 1928. 

Scholarship recipients are selected as the best representatives of each vocational area, demonstrate an interest in pursuing a career in their chosen vocation, show potential for future success in their field, and are recommended by their vocational instructors.  A unique aspect of this scholarship is that the student who is not planning to attend college or pursue additional formalized training can use the money for equipment needed in his or her field.  Students from the Dearborn Public School District are eligible.

Twelve high school seniors received scholarships at this year's 27th annual Otto J. Rowen Awards banquet in May.  They included Ryan Skelly, Edsel Ford, and Ali Farran, Fordson, for automotive; Dazia Smith from Michael Berry Career Center (MBCC) and Edsel Ford for culinary arts; Cala Harris-Norris, Courtney Dabao, Abigail Hall, and Leena Abbas of MBCC/Dearborn High School (DHS) for health occupations; James Hattan, MBCC/DHS, for information technology; Dearborn High seniors Sierra Aho for marketing education, Hassan Bazzi for video production & IT, and Tarik Dobbs for video production; and John Scanlon, Edsel Ford, for Welding Technology.

Rotary Club of Belleville
On Tuesday, May 12th the Belleville Rotary Club held their 70th Annual Scholarship Program, awarding ten $2000 scholarships to Belleville High graduates.  The club recognized five recipients of first time scholarships and five recipients of second year renewal scholarships. 
First year scholarship recipients are: Lindsay Lore, Verniece Renee Lowe, Emily Mall, Haley Richardson and Hannah Smith.  Renewal scholarships were awarded to: Lauren Benedict, Kayla Hardy, Allison Juchartz, Deborah Lazarean, and Hannah Rodriguez.  

Since inception, Belleville Rotary has awarded $450,000 to Belleville High School students as part of their scholarship program.  This year, as in recent years, the primary funding source for the program has been the Charles B. Cozadd Rotary Foundation which assists the club in the funding or partial funding of many of its projects.

Rotary Club of Carleton - Special Playground Equipment
Here are some photos of the Carleton Rotary Club.  Spreading out the mulch around the Handicapped accessible swings and the lady bug bouncer that we provided at the Unity Park in Ash Township on Wednesday May 6, 2015.  Also we have some pictures of a former Carleton Rotary members daughter Mia trying out the swings for us.  She was involved in a car accident about 4 or 5 years ago and suffered a spinal injury and has been in a wheel chair since.   It was her first time on a swing since and she really enjoyed it.
