October 18th, Tanglewood Hills Pavilion
The Rotary Spotlight is on Youth and Education
The Oct. 18 meting focuses on one of Bettendorf Rotary’s most important service areas – education for youth. Our superintendent duo, Mike Raso of Bettendorf Schools and Jim Spelhaug of Pleasant Valley Schools (also our Youth Services chair), are in charge.
Mike will lead the presentations from the Bettendorf students who attended Iowa’s RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Academy) last summer.
Jim will be in charge of the presentation by Alessandro lo Maestro, the Rotary Youth Exchange student who is studying at PVHS this year.
In addition, the most recent Rotary Scholarship recipient at Scott Community College may be able to attend – and get to meet our newest member, Dr. Lyn Cochran, SCC president.
All of this is happening in the same week that Bettendorf Rotarians are beginning to present dictionaries to all of the 4th graders in the community.
