Learn about the Chelsea Rotary Club’s STRIVE scholarship program

(Chelsea Update would like to thank Lori Coryell for the information in this story.)

The Rotary Club of Chelsea is committed to improving the quality of life for people in our community. Through its fundraising efforts, the club supports Chelsea students pursuing post-secondary education through scholarship opportunities.

Chelsea Rotary established its STRIVE (Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education) Scholarship Program to motivate and support students entering their senior year.

At the beginning of the school year, interested students with a grade point average below 3.0 sign up for STRIVE through the Chelsea High School Counseling Office. STRIVE students attend a number of monthly mentoring sessions led by Rotarians and perform one hour of Rotary service, including opportunities like highway cleanup, assisting at Rotary events, or helping with Faith in Action food deliveries.

All students who complete these requirements are invited to an evening banquet along with their parents and an honored educator.

The 2018 STRIVE banquet takes place on Wednesday, April 25 at the Village Conference Center at Chelsea Comfort Inn and features an inspirational speaker.

At the event, each STRIVE student will be recognized and receive a certificate of completion.

The top three students who raise their grade point averages the most during the first two trimesters of the school year will also be recognized at Chelsea High School’s Class Night and will be awarded the following scholarships: 1st place, $1,500; 2nd place, $1,000; and 3rd place, $500.

The STRIVE program continues to be a favorite program among club members. We share in the great pride these students have in completing the program. Please join us in congratulating the STRIVE students from the class of 2018.
