Our Rotary Student of the Month for September was recently interviewed . . .

“I’m grateful to my teachers and to the school for being so accommodating, especially during COVID,” Williams said. “They’ve been willing to adapt to the scenarios we have and still provide a healthy learning environment.”

Reflecting on the recent death of a friend of a friend, Williams said the “impermanence of life” is what keeps him motivated to do so many different things.

“Life should be taken in full and not taken for granted,” he said. “Even in your younger years, you should still be doing things and making a difference in the world.”
