The Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs is proud to name Zoe Hart from the Soroco High School as a recipient of the Rotary Club Student of the Month award for May 2013. Zoe is a senior this year and is planning to attend either the University of Denver or University of Colorado at Denver in the fall of 2013. She currently has a 3.97 G.P.A. and has maintained a challenging schedule for herself throughout the last four years. She was amongst a small group of students to start a travel club at the Soroco high school. Her first year, she traveled to Paris and this past year, traveled to Spain. This is an example of Zoe’s enthusiastic and adventurous nature. She is also very creative, outgoing and has a joyous outlook on life.
Zoe’s name stood out in a competitive senior pool this year as someone very deserving of this recognition. She has involved herself with a program called, “Live Below the Line”, to raise awareness of local and world poverty. She is now part of a website which raises money for the World Food Organization. In addition to this project, Zoe has hours upon hours of community service, mostly working with children in some fashion. This is Zoe’s passion. She describes her work with children as an opportunity to help them grow and become greater adults. She wants them to know that there are no limits in life. She intends on being a role model for other children and wants to help them to reach their fullest potential, as her own mentors did for her, early on.
Zoe has worked incredibly hard to get to where she is today and to enjoy some of the privileges of travel. She was not given these opportunities on a silver platter. Therefore, virtues such as diligence, humility, charity and kindness are naturally a part of her repertoire. We feel that the way that Zoe chooses to conduct her life fits well with the mission of the Rotary Club.

May 21 & 23, Tuesday and Thursday evening from 4pm-8pm , ourInteract club will be displaying Shelter Box and hosting a fundraiser during the Peace and Justice Symposium at the High School.
Please come by and show your support for Interact. I met with students over the weekend to work on the Interact break out session for DC and one of the things that stood out in my mind from our meeting was said by past Interact president Kayleigh Esswein, "it really makes a difference when Rotarians come to Interact events and meetings, even if they just sit and observe, because it shows us that they care about Interact and what we are doing!"
So, please make the effort to at least stop by and show them that we support them and are proud of them. After all, these could be future Rotarians you are cultivating!
Holly Larson-advocator for Interact ;)

The Steamboat Springs Rotary Club is pleased to honor Cole Miller, from the Hayden High School, as Student of the Month for April 2013. Cole is an impressive and hardworking young man who always has a great outlook, respect and maturity. Cole is ranked in the top 15% of his class with a 3.82 GPA. He has challenged himself by taking rigorous courses including Advanced Placement and Honors courses in English, Science, and Math. Cole has also taken advantage of dual enrollment courses and received College Credit and Certifications for Welding during his time in the Babson-Carpenter Career and Technical Education Center.
Cole has been on the Honor Roll all four years he has attended Hayden High School and, among other high achievements, Cole scored a 27 on the ACT. Teachers comment that Cole is a leader, hard worker, respectful, good communicator and industrious. They also state that he pays great attention to detail, has great work ethic, is a team player and is self-directed. Cole is also very punctual and has almost perfect attendance.
Upon graduation on May 20, 2012, Cole will attend Colorado State University where he will study Mechanical Engineering.
Mr. Paul Scoppa, HHS Construction Trades teacher, stated, “[Cole] is always willing to help anyone in need of assistance”.
Mr. Kevin Kleckler, HHS Vocational and Technical Education Teacher, commented that Cole is “an outstanding young man with tremendous work ethic and who has an attention to detail. He will be a great asset to the engineering profession.”

Steve Hitchcock is Rotarian of the month for April 2013. This past year, Steve has served on the fundraising task force, the grants committee, chaired the dues and fees task force, and served on the district conference committee, where he is taking on the responsibility of coordinating the Friday dinner on the town. The dinner downtown is a new idea for the district conference, and was thought up by Steve as a way to both spread the word about Rotary in Steamboat Springs during the conference while simultaneously having a larger positive impact from the conference on the community. In addition to all of this, Steve is the club's secretary, and in that role, spends countless hours updating clubrunner and doing all of the paperwork required for our club to operate effectively. Thank you Steve for your service to the Rotary Club of Steamboat Springs!
Consider joining our club - we'd love to have you as a member! You can start the process by joining us for lunch at our regular Tuesday meeting, as our guest.
