Each month, members of the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke recognize a student from the Mammoth – San Manuel Junior/Senior High School. The club works with School Counselor, Dave Jungbluth, to select a “Student of the Month” who represents excellence in scholastics, leadership and character. What a joy it is for us to get to know these amazing students.

The students are celebrated by the club at one of our luncheons. As it would be difficult to be the lone high school student in a room full of adults, we celebrate two award winners every other month. That way two students attend a Rotary meeting with their school counselor.

There are several perks to being selected Student of the Month. In addition to being treated to lunch at the SaddleBrooke Clubhouse and missing school lunch, students receive a special certificate and a cash award. They also speak before the club. Each time we recognize our Students of the Month, we are just amazed at the high caliber of these students.

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke feels that it’s important to recognize achievers in our schools. So often we hear the negatives about our future generations, but not the positives. The club wants to recognize the positive qualities of scholarship, leadership and character in our future generations.

If this sounds like an interesting program that appeals to you, come visit the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke. If you’d like to join us for lunch, there are three outstanding meal options ranging from $7 to $11. We start ordering lunch about 11:15 a.m., have a quick Rotary Meeting and enjoy the program about 12:20 p.m. or so. But the best part is all the friendly people you’ll meet!

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is not only an award-winning organization devoted to making a difference locally and globally, but it is also a club that enjoys coming together for life-long learning. We meet weekly for lunch with friends and an excellent program of learning. If this sounds like something of interest to you, come visit our friendly club and learn more about Rotary.

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke is open to all. If this sounds like something of interest to you, join us for lunch on any Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse and meet some of our members. For more information, contact Wendy Guyton at 520-404-5712 or [email protected].
