Rotary honors students
CAMBRIDGE — Members of the Cambridge Rotary Club recently awarded Self Above Service awards to North Dorchester High School seniors, Taylor Marie Bradley and Evan Patrick Stiles, and to Cambridge-South Dorchester High School seniors, Michele Patrice Howard and Zachary Charles Phillips.
Counting this year’s recipients, in 46 years the Cambridge Rotary Club has recognized 196 students for their service to their school communities, their home towns and Dorchester County.
The principle on which Rotary was founded, and on which it has always functioned, is that of unselfish service to the community and to others. Rotary’s annual Service Above Self awards are intended to recognize and call public attention to the unselfish efforts and accomplishments of four senior high school students who have devoted their abilities and energies to improving their respective schools and their home communities.
The students receiving the Service Above Self award were selected by the faculty and the administrators of their respective schools, not a committee comprised of Rotarians. Because there are so many outstanding students in the two county high schools, club members recognize that each year’s final selection by the school authorities is difficult and challenging.
The Rotary Club is grateful for the cooperation shown by W. David Bromwell Jr., principal of Cambridge-South Dorchester High School, J. Lynn Sorrells, principal of North Dorchester High School, and the faculty members of each Dorchester County high school.
