Wellington Rotary Honors Students Of The Quarter

The Rotary Club of Wellington held its Student of the Quarter dinner on Jan. 30 at the Wanderers Club.

Jay Broder served as the master of ceremonies and coordinated with the faculty advisers at area high schools in choosing the award winners.

The club honored Brianna Starcher, a senior at Wellington High School. Starcher is involved in many extracurricular activities including the Interact Club, which she joined last spring and became heavily involved in during the fall semester.

Starcher is currently club secretary, and she personally recruited many new members into the club. She led projects such Honor Flight and Pennies for Polio, whose proceeds were donated to Rotary International’s fight against polio.

The club also honored Virginia Lopez-Nadal, a sophomore at Palm Beach Central High School. She has been an active member of the Interact Club since the beginning of the school year.

Last quarter, Lopez-Nadal was voted member of the month within the club because of her commitment and dedication to Interact. The energy and positive attitude she brings to the classroom is part of who she is and is demonstrated by her actions at every Interact event she participates in. Along with being involved with Interact, Lopez-Nadal carries a heavy course load and is an excellent student.

The Rotary Club of Wellington sponsors both Interact clubs at Wellington High School and Palm Beach Central High School. The clubs give the students early exposure to Rotary and its impact on the world.
