Exchange Happenings – Youth Scholarships

-

One of the most popular Exchange youth projects is the Youth of the Month/Year Award.

This award recognizes hard-working high school students who attain high levels of scholastic achievement, community involvement and leadership. This proven program not only rewards outstanding young people, but also provides an incentive for other youngsters to strive for equally high levels of achievement. Each student is required to write an essay. This year the essay theme was “How Am I a Catalyst in My Community.”

At the April 18 club meeting, the Exchange Club of Naperville honored the following students: Imani Porter, Neuqua Valley High School; Catherine Guan, Waubonsie Valley High School; Alexa Bukowski, Naperville Central High School; Donnie Minor, Waubonsie Valley High School; Dillon Bramlett, Naperville North High School; and Daniel O’Meara, Benet Academy. Catherine Guan was chosen as the Youth of the Year and her essay will be sent to the Lincolnland District for nomination to be the District Youth of the Year. Each student received a $1,000 scholarship.

Next month we will announce the recipient of the ACE Award – Accepting the Challenge of Excellence. This program recognizes high school students who have made a dramatic change in their attitude and performance during their high school years. These changes have enabled the students to overcome adversities and prepare for graduation. This student will receive a $1,000 scholarship and their application will be submitted to the LincolnLand District for their A.C.E. Award.

The Exchange Club of Naperville meets on the first Friday and the third Thursday each month. Please contact me at EmyTrotz@gmail.com for meeting details.
