Also at our peace celebration, our club recognized its first 2021 Scholar of the Month, with Julianna Lian, a dynamic student at Florida Atlantic University High School. She is a 2021 Florida Presidential Scholar nominee and the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Palm Beach Regional Science Fair, Senior Division, Cellular/Molecular Biology & Biochemistry 1st place winner. She says she learned about Rotary through Interact and this scholarship has had a positive effect on her ambition to one-day become a member of Rotary. Our club was astonished by her performance last night, what an amazing asset she is to our community. This is the goal of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton-Sunset, to share and grow Rotary, while strengthening relations with community partners that benefit youth education.
The Scholar of the Month program is part of a multi-year community partnership with Florida Atlantic University High School to promote excellence in youth education in Boca Raton. A cornerstone principle of Rotarians of Rotary International. Come learn more about this experience and more of what we do and how we do it a little differently in the Rotary Club of Boca Raton-Sunset, a community partner of Boca Raton, since 1996.
