Detroit Rotary Club -Youth Citizen of the Month
What a thrill it was this past Wednesday at our Detroit Rotary meeting at the DAC when our new Rotary member Adam Keagle of General Motors and I were able to present the first of our nine (9) scholarship awards to this school year’s first “Youth Citizen Service Awardee” Agustin Guerrero-Flores of Cesar Chavez Academy High School! Agustin humbly accepted his award and made an inspiring speech about his love of service and the immense role it plays in his life and will guide his future. Both of his proud parents were there, along with Sandra Chavez, his College/Career Advisor, and his Principal, Juan Jose Martinez, a decades-long friend of mine, who enthusiastically cheered for Agustin and took the photo below.
We will present one award per week, almost every week between now and mid-May! Thanks to the amazing volunteer work of our “Youth Citizen Service Award” committee members, next week’s honoree will be Myrical Starr Crosby of Pershing High School, presented by Latricia Wright, YCSA Committee Member.
What an honor and privilege seeing one of our fabulous scholars receiving the Detroit Rotary Club award and scholarship! What an honor and privilege seeing one of ourfabulous scholars receiving the Detroit Rotary Club award and scholarship!

Garden City Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs
Both service clubs had their signature annual Christmas Party for special children. The children were selected by their teachers and principals. All the children had free pizza, salad, soda and coloring book. They were entertained by the Garden City High School Singers who sang Christmas Carols. The very special guest was Santa Claus!! He greeted all and gave out many hugs. He and the elves talked to each child and gave them many gifts. It was a very fun, happy and energenic event. The Garden City School Superintendent gave permission to show these photos on the internet. _________________________________________
