Today, we met the 2014 Middle School Most Motivated Student of the Year, Max Okst, who was accompanied by his dad, David. Sharon and Deb presented Max with his $300 award after Sharon explained why the school's administration and faculty, who helped select Max for this honor, chose him. Evidently, Max's academic achievement across many subject areas was consistently high throughout grades 6-8, reflecting his conscientiousness towards school work; and he made Honor Roll every quarter since entering Middle School. He also showed evidence of being a long term thinker- a rarity among his peers, as he displayed a willingness to work hard to realize a dreamed-of outcome over time (an example given: as a member of the Track Team, Max was usually 1st out on the field for every practice, worked out to full capacity, and then was the last one to leave). His teachers agreed that this attitude carried into his studies, where he appeared to always be trying his best, though the process might not have been easy. Max's continued desire to tend to task and his terrific study habits were rated as most commendable. It is expected that Max will continue to be an exceptional student as he enters the High School.

Marilyn Fabbricante, Dir.of Communications and External Affairs, and Lisa Mulvey, Dir. of Development at St. Charles, provided us with an update on the hospital's programs. Marilyn, who works with us on our Read-To-Me Project, thanked us for continuing this activity, noting that now approximately 1,600 babies are delivered annually, and new parents are delighted to receive our Literacy Packets. She referred to a recent photo op when Sharon and Deb presented our product to newborn triplets and their folks. Marilyn also informed us that St. Charles, as part of the Catholic Hospital System and 2nd largest employer on LI, has begun acquiring medical practices. Apparently the wave of the future, doctors are becoming salaried employees of hospitals and will, among other things, have easier access to medical records. Now that the hospital has converted to electronic medical records, patients will also have the ability to keep track of their medical histories on line. In April, St. Charles opened a 10-bed inpatient unit dedicated to medically supervised alcohol and chemical dependency detoxification. Patients admitted to the unit are monitored by a team of specialists in addiction medicine. Soon, the hospital will also be opening a children's ventilation unit to provide critical care by specialized staff. Additionally, St. Charles is working with the MIT-developed exoskeleton that can aid patients who are paraplegics in walking via electric stimulation.

We also welcomed visits from Joseph Kazlau, who works from Ameriprise Financial (and who, with colleague Ivy Peterson, has expressed interest in joining our club!), former club member Eddie Miller, and both the President and Past President of the Middle Island Rotary Club.
