Dave Anderson, District 5520 Governor for Rotary clubs in New Mexico and Far West Texas, spoke to the Rotary Club of Carlsbad on Nov. 30, delivering a message based on the worldwide organization’s 2016-17 theme of “Rotary Serving Humanity.”

“This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Rotary Foundation,” Anderson told members. “What began with a donation of $26.50 has become a $3 billion effort today by Rotarians here in our communities and around the world in support of humanitarian efforts.”

Anderson expressed his appreciation for the service that the Rotary Club of Carlsbad’s members perform within the community and their support of Rotary’s global programs.

Carlsbad Rotary Club President Juan Dorado echoed Anderson’s comments about the great efforts made by Rotarians and expressed his appreciation to Anderson for his visit and service.

 
Graduating members of Delancey Street who have just received their high school diplomas crowd around Dr. Gabe Baca, in graduation regalia, director of the Adult Basic Education department at UNM-Los Alamos.  In the crowd also are Alison Pannell, President of the Rotary Club of Los Alamos, and Linda Hull, the Club's PR coordinator.  The Rotary Club of Los Alamos provided vouchers to pay for each graduate's exam fees.
 
   Through an initiative undertaken by the late Gil Butler with a District 5520 matching grant, the Rotary Club of Los Alamos has provided financial support for students in the Adult Basic Education (ABE) department of the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) since 2008.  The Club does this by paying the exam fees for students taking the General Education Degree (GED) and High School Equivalency (HSE) exams.
 
   The beneficiaries of this grant are students served under the UNM-LA ABE program and who participate in the HSE program:  Los Alamos residents; Native American students from surrounding Pueblos; and students who are recovering from substance abuse at Delancey Street Foundation (San Juan Pueblo, NM) and the Sangre de Cristo Women’s Transitional Living Program (Peña Blanca, NM).   This project, as shown by its success in the past, has positively affected the Los Alamos community and its neighbors by providing educational advancement for those who might not otherwise be able to afford the exam fees, $51.50.  Improving educational opportunities for local residents, whatever their age or circumstance, is in keeping with Rotary’s pledge to support literacy and vocational success.
