Rotary in Action
Secretary Elect Joy Mackenzie of Rotary Club of Providenciales will chaperone three students to attend the World Affairs Seminar in Wisconsin. The students of Turks and Caicos Institute for Professional Studies (TCIPS) Comprehensive High School are the winners of the National AIDs debate in Turks and Caicos Islands.
On a small island, every little bit helps, and the smallest of efforts has BIG and swift impact to many. One of my projects each year is the ‘dictionary project’ where we purchase these really cool dictionaries each year from an organization called ‘The Dictionary Project‘ and distribute them across the country to Grade 3′s. Students really look forward to getting them, and they cherish them and hold on to them throughout many of their years.
This year’s project was a great success, the many smiles you see when handing them out makes all the effort worthwhile, and I’m already looking forward to start getting things organized for next year’s handouts.
