Rockford Rotary and Rockford High School are proud to announce this year’s recipients of the Rick Ehinger Memorial STRIVE scholarship.  Jared Smigiel will receive a $1,200 scholarship to be used at Grand Rapids Community College in the fall.  To date, over 100 seniors have participated in the STRIVE mentorship program, which has donated over $20,000 to Rockford seniors over the past 11 years.

STRIVE stands for Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education.  If you are interested in becoming a mentor to a high school senior next school year, please contact Rockford High School at 863-6030.
