Achievement Beyond Obstacles Grads
Mar 06, 2017
Nominated Students Tell Their Story

Achievement Beyond Obstacles is a joint youth program that the Rotary Club of Reno and two other local Rotary Clubs sponsor.  High School counselors select high school seniors who have faced enormous challenges in their life, yet still found a way to graduate.  These students spend a leadership weekend with facilitators Dean and Rochelle Whellams, obtain financial aid education and help figuring out what their next step in life is.  Rotary scholarships for selected students range from $500 to $2,500.  This ABO luncheon is one of three Rotary luncheons honoring students from Washoe County schools from all different socio-economic backgrounds who have achieved success despite the obstacles in their way.   Every nominated student is invited to attend and bring a guest and we will hear a 3 minute speech from some of them about where they have been and where they are going.  You won't want to miss hearing from these students and the impact Rotary is having in their lives.

INTERNATIONAL IMPACT - We gave out $61,000+ to 7 projects around the world, including: 
PANAMA

NEPAL - The Cow Farm Project, has produced milk sales revenue of almost $600 to date. Profits from the project will help sustain BTF’s maternal/child wellness and education efforts in the remote Humla District of northern Nepal. They will conduct two 5-day Safe Motherhood classes in November educating a total of 50 women.
