Kayleigh Graham - Buckeye, Nolan Freeland - Cloverleaf, Taylor Csanyi - Highland, and Maxwell Gabrielson - Medina (absent) were each presented with a scholarship award certificate for $1,000 from Medina Sunrise Rotary Club at the annual Carl Abell Memorial Service Above Self Scholarship Awards Breakfast which was held at Pride One in Medina.
"These highly competitive scholarships are named in honor of Past Rotary District Governor Carl Abell and represent a legacy of academic excellence, 'Service above Self', and leadership in the community," stated Scholarship Chairman William Koran on behalf of his scholarship committee. As a local role model for the students and a visible example of Excellence, Service and Leadership, Becky Abell Shotwell delivered the keynote address, honoring the legacy of her father, Carl Abell. "I challenge you today to do two things: First, be involved with your community, your family, your friends and your future and second, be passionate in your dreams, thoughts, words and actions. If you remember this and do this, you will be successful in making a positive impact on the lives of the people you meet."
Becky Abell Shotwell congratulated the Medina County high school scholars who were present - Kayleigh, Nolan and Taylor, expressing every confidence in their future success. "We are thankful for the caring support of their families and schools, the generous funding of the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club and all those who show continued faith in youth -- that 'Today’s scholars will become tomorrow's community and world leaders'. Good Luck Class of 2022!"
