Kazuki Hanahara, the RCSW 2018 foreign exchange student, trades Rotary club pennants with past President Bruce Enter.  Standing with her is Ray Green, RCSW Director of Vocational Services, who has overseen the exchange program for many years.  The RCSW was chartered in 1982 and since then has sponsored over 30 foreign exchange students from countries all over the globe.  The students live with a Whidbey Island family while they attend classes for one year at South Whidbey High School.  In return, each year the RCSW sponsors one SWHS student to attend school and live with a Rotary family in a foreign country.  
Rotarians help sort donated clothes at Good Cheer, which has been at the forefront of creating a hunger-free community on South Whidbey for over fifty years.  The clothes will be sold at Good Cheer's Thrift Stores in Langley and Clinton, which provide the greatest portion of the organization's financial support.  Good Cheer provides healthful food — including fresh locally-grown produce — to an average of 850 families each month.  Click here to find out more about Good Cheer!  The Rotary Club of South Whidbey meets on Tuesdays at 7:30 AM at the WiFire Coffee Bar in Freeland.  
 
The Rotary Club of South Whidbey awarded $15,000 in scholarships to six students for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Each student received $2,500 towards their higher education; two of the six recipients are currently attending college in Washington and four will graduate from South Whidbey High School this month.  Three of the scholarship recipients attended the Club meeting on June 5th and are in the center of the above picture with their parents and friends.  From left to right they are Jordan Shelley, Sophia Nielsen, and Callum MacDonald.   Click here to view more photos.
