WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING
Our Sahuaro High School Interact kids worked hard this year making sure they did one community project a month as well as participating in our Shoebox project. Finding out the school could not present the "Distinguished Service Citations" at the Awards ceremony or Graduation. Ted and I bought pizza and we had an Awards - Pizza Party,Thursday May 4. Their teacher Dan Wells and I gave out the awards to the Senior Interact Students. Their new board of officers for next year was there also. We wish the outgoing seniors well on their new life adventures, (hoping that Rotary is part of that in the future)!
 
 
 
 
On Saturday, March 4, our club had the opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity's "A Brush with Kindness."  Our club members painted the exterior of a room that just had the siding replaced due to water damage.  We also installed gutters on the patio and around the newly painted room to prevent further water damage.  It was a very worthwhile project and we were glad to help out this homeowner.  
Our speaker today was Chuck from Junior Achievement This  was and excellent presentation and we all learned so much about Junior Achievement and how important they are to our schools.  JA had changed so much from years ago and expanded their reach into the schools. 
 
One of our favorite things we do here at Pantano Rotary is to honor a Student of the Month.  This month we are pleased to give the Student of the Month award to Michael Rumsey, and engineering student from Sahuaro High School. Here's what his teacher, Ben Davis. 
 
 Michael is a senior in my 2nd year engineering class. He has already completed the Engineering 102 HS class for University of Arizona credit during last school year. This year, he is extending his engineering knowledge in my 2ndyear engineering class where he has tackled every challenge given. He is participating in Sahuaro’s first ever robotics team and is a leader in coding our robot for Vex Startstruck competition using RobotC programming language. He is participating in Sahuaro’s first Racing the Sun Solar Go-Kart competition where he is in charge of the electrical schematics. He has become proficient in Solidworks and using our 3D printer. He would like to major in electrical or optical engineering at the University of Arizona. He has become a valuable resource for other students in the class.
