Here are some of our incredible club members passing out pizza to area high school students during Brazosport College's Career Day. It was a lot of fun!
On October 30, 2021, members of Brazosport Rotary continued to maintain the Abner Jackson Plantation historical site, continuing work started in August. This project was organized by Rotary in Action co-chairs, Mike Coburn and David Landsborough.
There was much to celebrate during the month of September! See below for just a sampling of memorable moments during our weekly meetings. (More to come on future posts!)

Argun and Yui met January 22-24 with hundreds of fellow Rotary Youth Exchange Students at the SCRYE Conference in Tulsa. 

 

Ask them about the skits that they performed with their countrymen at the banquet.  Austin reports from Italy that she has moved to her second host family in Milan and is having a wonderful exchange experience.  She is a good ambassador for our club, community, and country.

So much happened in December that as I am sitting down to write this I am still surprised about how fortunate I am to be where I am, so thank you all again for making this possible! The first weekend in December started off with a bang as my district took a trip to Rome and Florence - two of the most breathtaking cities in Italy…The weather has been getting a bit cold for this Texan, but I'm learning how to layer. I am getting excited as I (and others) can tell my Italian is getting better. I should be busy packing my room right now because I move families today, but it's a daunting task ahead of me. I am excited for the new opportunity but also sad to be leaving my current home. As always, I hope everything is going well in Texas and we'll be in touch!

Buon anno!

Austin Strobel

Dear Brazosport Rotary.
My name is Madison Walters. I am part of Brazoswood High School's Class of 2015. I would like to thank you for the scholarship you have given me. It will certainly be a huge help to my family this fall when I attend the University of Texas at Austin to pursue a degree in Mathematics. I am extremely grateful.
Thank you so much.
Madison Walters.
I would like to thank the Brazosport Rotary Club for their generous scholarship. I would also like to apologize for not attending the luncheon, my schedule conflicted. The scholarship will be used in its full capacity and is greatly appreciated. Thank you again!
Sincerely, Samantha Randolph
Dear Brazosport Rotary Club,
 
I am sincerely honored to have been selected as a recipient of the Brazosport Rotary Club Scholarship for 2015. Your organization's generous support is helping me to fulfill a lifelong dream of going to college and will help in greatly reducing my financial burdens and allow me to focus on my education.
 
I will be starting my freshman year at Texas A&M in College Station in the fall majoring in Biomedical Science.
 
Thanks again for investing in my future. I will make sure to do my best in achieving my academic and career goals.
 
Sincerely,
 
Annika Moreno
Gig 'Em
Texas A&M
Class of 2019
I am honored to be one of the recipients of the Brazosport Rotary Club scholarship. I thank you (Jacque) and Brazosport Rotary Club for your generous support and for the recognition lunch event in Lake Jackson. I am glad to have the opportunity to thank you personally for your generosity.
 
Scholarship patrons like yourself help substantially reduce the tuition that many students must pay for college, enabling some students to attend college they might otherwise be  be unable to afford at all and thereby not be able to pursue the careers which they have dreamed of.
 
I consider myself very fortunate to be accepted into the Texas A&M University at Galveston and the Texas Maritime Academy. Having graduated from Brazoswood High School on June 5, I look forward to studing marine transportation this fall.
 
My Parents and teachers always strived to make me realize the high value of education. I will do my very best at Texas A&M Galveston and look forward to becoming a Sea Aggie and pursuing a career in marine transportation.
 
Once again, I thank you for your support and I offer my sincerest thanks for your continued generosity to the Brazosport Rotary Club Scholarship.
 
Respectfully submittted,
Conner Costello
 
 
 
Dear Brazosport Rotary Club,
I'd like to express my sincere gratitude for the generous scholarship you awarded me. Thank you for choosing me as one of the recipients to receive this scholarship. My education and career is so important to me and I couldn't thank you enough for the amazing opportunity. I appreciate the recognition of my efforts and all the support.
Sincerely,
Sara Villarreal
I cannot begin to express how thankful I am to be a recipient for this scholarship. I am overwhelmingly thankful and appreciate the opportunity you've given me to help further my education. I will continue to be the hard- working, focused and determined student that I am.
Valarie Madrigal
