Rockford Rotary Awards
2015 STRIVE Scholarship
Rockford Rotary and Rockford High School are proud to announce this year's recipient of the STRIVE scholarship, Maryah Massop. Maryah was awarded the Rick Ehinger Memorial STRIVE Scholarship by Michelle Ehinger, Rick’s wife. Rick, a longtime Rockford Rotarian, was passionate about the STRIVE program and raised thousands of dollars to bring the program into Rockford some eight years ago.
To date, 74 Rockford seniors have participated in STRIVE. STRIVE stands for Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education. It is a program where students are mentored their senior year of high school. Throughout the year selected students and mentors meet regularly and participate in community service projects. Incentives are awarded at various times during the year for students who increase grades, improve attendance, and have no discipline issues.
Rockford High School would like to thank Rockford Rotary for their continued support of Rockford High School and truly making a difference in the lives of the community. If you would like to learn more about the program, or are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Katy VanCuren at RHS.
