The Rotary Club of Alliston awarded its Paul Harris Bursary to Dayna Spence, a graduating student at Banting Memorial High School in New Tecumseth.  Named after the founder of Rotary International, the award goes annually to the student who best exemplifies the qualities of scholastic achievement, exemplary leadership, community service through volunteerism, and financial need.  
Pictured with Dayna are her proud father Jeremy and mother Kelly, along with George Scott, club president.  George was ably assisted in the review of applicants by club member Captain Rachael Tracey of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Corps.  George added: "This $2,000 bursary is an important way Rotary can reward excellence and support our youth, who are our community's precious resource."
