Here’s to academic achievements

Fort Dodge Noon Rotary honors local achievers

The Fort Dodge Noon Rotary Club has been a part of this community for a century. Its many worthy activities and community-improvement projects contribute to making this town a place anyone would be proud to call home

Helping young people succeed and taking the time to acknowledge and honor their achievements are priorities for local Rotarians. That’s why for more than four decades Fort Dodge Noon Rotary has held an Academic Achievement Banquet. This event honors seniors at both Fort Dodge Senior High School and St. Edmond High School for their scholarly prowess.

To be selected for this recognition, students must rank in the top 10 percent of their graduating class.

This year, 25 members of the Fort Dodge Senior High School Class of 2019 will be honored. Also, four members of the St. Edmond High School graduating class will be honored.

Tribute is also due the students’ parents. The successes their sons and daughters have achieved are thanks in substantial measure to unfailing parental support.

Likewise, it’d be almost impossible to overstate the significance of the role dedicated teachers and school administrators play in creating a learning environment that facilitates academic accomplishments.

The Academic Achievement Banquet will be held at 5:30 p.m. May 22 at the Best Western Starlite Village Inn & Suites.

The Messenger joins the Fort Dodge Noon Rotary Club in applauding these students for their scholastic achievements, hard work, dedication and commitment to academic excellence.

Local Rotarians also deserve thanks for their longtime dedication to honoring young people in our community who aim high and achieve their dreams.
