Scholarships were awarded to 14 students in 2013...

On May 16, 2013 the Bonners Ferry Rotary Club had the pleasure of awarding $13,000 to 14 local high school and college students at a dessert reception held in their honor at the Kootenai River Inn.  The students were joined by their families for this celebration. 

Andrakay (Hoisington) Pluid, Bonners Ferry new city attorney and assistant administrator, discussed the importance of a solid education and the availability of scholarships to fulfill that quest.  Andrakay was an earlier Rotary scholarship recipient, who graduated from college and law school, passed the bar on her first try, and is now part of the BF Rotary Club.

According to Norman Braatz, scholarship chairman and master of ceremonies for the event, “the local Rotary Club has been awarding scholarships since it was founded in 2002.  That year, the club was able to award $600.”

Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.”

Rotary is the world’s oldest service club – a worldwide organization of more than 1.3 million business and professional people in more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries. Club members are called Rotarians, and they volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities and the world.
