Abrianna Robles, a former Interact President at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, continues to demonstrate Rotary's Service Above Self mission and this year's Presidential theme Making a Difference, as she raised $2,020 for a North Bay Fire Relief fund. A number of Morgan Hill Rotarians also stepped up to sponsor Abrianna in the Brooklyn Marathon. Demonstrating the same spirit as Abrianna, the Rotary Club of Morgan Hill contributed $1,000 to support fire relief efforts in the North Bay and as well as similar amounts to b0th hurricane relief activities in the Gulf Coast and Puerto Rico.
“The thing I love most about Rotary - especially the Morgan Hill Chapter - is their ability to give back to the community, to those who need it most,” said Robles.
Robles’ generosity and giving spirit is no surprise to those who know her. Robles lives in New York and graduated from Duke University last year. While attending Live Oak she was an active member of the Rotary community serving as President of the Live Oak Interact Club in her senior year 5 years ago. To prepared for her Interact leadership role, she attended Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts. Robles also participated in the Rotary Speech Contest Regionals and was a frequent volunteer at Interact and Rotary events.
