Student Rotarian of the Month - CHS Seniors, Class of 2020
Rotary Club of Coronado
The Coronado Rotary Club has a long time tradition of hosting a Student Rotarian each month during the school year. Eight CHS Seniors will be selected as Student Rotarians to serve one month terms. In addition to attending the 2nd and 4th Wednesday Rotary Club Meetings at the Hotel Del from noon to 1:30 p.m., students will also participate in Rotary community service events such as Saturday Beach Clean-Up, Flags on the Avenue and Rotarians at Work Day. Permission to attend the Wednesday Rotary meetings must be obtained from both the student’s fifth period teacher and a parent. Transportation to the Hotel Del will be provided.
Student Rotarians serve for a calendar month, and will be the guest of Rotarians for lunch. They will have different duties including Greeter, Introduction of Visitors, and Pledge. During the second and final meeting, the Student Rotarian will deliver a two minute speech titled, “Who Am I.” In their remarks, the Student will talk about their childhood and Coronado education, and post high school plans. The Student will invite a CUSD staff member as their guest for lunch the final week, and during their speech, he or she will explain to the audience how this faculty member has inspired them during their Coronado school years.
Seniors interested in being considered as a Student Rotarian are encouraged to write a one-page Letter of Interest, describing their community service involvement, leadership experience, academic interests and career aspirations, and why they would consider themselves a good candidate for the Student Rotarian Program. Please send your Letter of Interest by September 27th, 2019 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
