The Rotary Foundation of La Porte continued our tradition of recognizing the outstanding achievement of LPHS Seniors by awarding $28,000 in college scholarships at the annual Awards Night at LPHS. This year 15 students we awarded scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. Senior and Interact President Matthew McFarland was awarded the La Porte Rotary Foundation Bart Latimer Memorial Grant, our largest award, and also led the invocation for the ceremony.
 
Thank you to the Rotarians that donated, solicited donations, and also who severed on our Scholarship Committee. We also appreciate all the community donations we received that allowed us to continue this tradition.
Our Rotary Club awarded a $1,250 scholarship to Academy at DeWalt High School Senior Kymerlyn Stepro! It was the first time our Club awarded a scholarship at DeWalt, but we are committing to continuing this next year. 
 
Kymberlyn will be attending Texas State University in the Fall, majoring in Forensics.
 
Attending the presentation included Rotarians Frank Nance, Jason Weeks, Mason Peres, Lisa Camp, along with Kymberly and her parents Rachel and Steve, along with sponsors of the grant, Nancy and Robert Ojeda, who we thank for their generous support.
Our Club recognized our graduating Interact students with $100 gift cards! Representing our seniors is Mrs. Tiffiny Vaughn, our Interact Club sponsor. Presenting the gift cards are Rotarians Jason Weeks, Sonja Baumgardner, Beth Brady and Frank Nance. 
Over the past two years, the Rotary Club of La Porte HoME (Home Maintenance for the Elderly) Team has committed more than 300 volunteer hours to helping senior citizens in our community, saving these residents more than $15,000 as a result. Through the HoME Team, Rotarians devote their time to helping seniors as well as disabled residents with basic home maintenance and minor repairs at no cost to the residents.
               
In 2019, the HoME Team spent 191 volunteer hours completing 19 projects in the community, saving residents a total of $6,700.  So far in 2020, despite the challenges of the COVID pandemic, the team has already completed 16 projects in 119 hours, saving residents $8,970.
               
La Porte area residents who are 60 or over or who are disabled are eligible to receive this assistance.  If you have the need for assistance, please contact the Rotary HoME Team at 281-413-3860 or email us at LaPorteRotaryClub@gmail.com.
As of July 1 our La Porte Rotary HOME Team set a record for their three year history by saving local residents $6,820 through eight projects in 2020!  The previous record was in 2019 with $6,760 saved by local residents in home repair costs.

The Rotary Club of LaPorte was a major sponsor of the LPISD Education Foundation’s first Hoops Classic basketball game at the Bulldog Centre on 2/27/2020.  A team of local community members and educators from each LPISD campus played the traveling Harlem Wizards. With support from Rotary and other local sponsors the Foundation raised over $20,000 towards LPISD teacher grants for the next school year. 
 
Club President Jeff Martin and President Elect Frank Nance participated as players in the game, while other Rotarians were volunteers supporting the event and many others were in attendance.  
 
Our Rotary Club is a proud supporter of the Education Foundation and the LaPorte Independent School District. 

In 2019 our local Rotarians were able to make home improvement repairs for 17 local elderly residents through the Home Maintenance for the Elderly Program. Using 191 volunteer hours and donated materials, we helped save these residents almost $7,000! #ServiceAboveSelf
