As high school graduation approaches we are remembering Ella Lentz, an Avon View High School graduate from Mount Uniacke, who received one of the Rotary bursaries last year.

Since 1975, our Club has presented bursaries every year to 4 local students who plan to further their education. Three of these bursaries are available to students graduating from Avon View High School and one to a Hantsport student graduating from Horton District High School.

We are excited to learn that Ella is having a successful year at the Dal Agricultural Campus. In addition to staying on top of her studies she is actively involved with the Intercollegiate Judging Team and the Intercollegiate Woodsmen Team, traveling to competitions in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. Just last week she was accepted as the new Co-Chair for the 2018 Judging Competition hosted by Dal AC each spring. She is also maintaining her involvement with 4-H - locally, provincially and nationally. She was instrumental in establishing the new 4-H Nova Scotia Members' Voice Committee (its purpose is to help direct the 4-H program by ensuring our programs stay relevant to the membership across NS) and she has recently been appointed to the 4-H Canada Youth Advisory Committee ( https://www.4-h-canada.ca/youth-advisory-committee ).

The Bursaries are one of many youth projects supported by Windsor Rotary...one Toonie at a time. You can help by playing the weekly Windsor Rotary Community Toonie 50/50 draw. In Mount Uniacke you can play at Giffin`s General Store and Esso. Find out more at http://rotarytoonie.com/
