Supporting Education

Our Rotary spotlight on September 18th was the presentation of a check to the South Haven Public Schools Foundation. Dene Hadden presented a check for $4,000 designated for the foundation’s endowment fund. Since we have added this organization to our educational fundraising events we have donated $27,581. In addition, their endowment has grown another $6,229.00 through other contributions and investment income and they now have $33,820 in their endowment. Twice each year the foundation awards five grants of up to $500 to classroom teachers for new and innovative projects. One of those grants is a named Rotary Grant. Leaders of our educational fundraising efforts, Deb Davidson, Scott Mark and Rhonda Wendzel, joined Dene in presenting the check to Fundation representatives Barry Skuza and Fred Leavitt.

Peace Through Understanding


On Tuesday, August 28, we heard from Jackson Beck-Calvert who we sponsored to attend the World Affairs Seminar in Waukesha, Wisc. The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) is a unique interactive educational program for high school students. The week-long experience provides an opportunity for international students from a variety of backgrounds to discuss issues in a non-threatening environment. They experience new and different ideas and viewpoints brought forward both by their colleagues and by world renowned experts. Dene Hadden, Chair of our Youth Committee, introduced Jackson.
