The Rotary Club of Wellington held its Student of the Quarter dinner on Nov. 20 at the Wanderers Club.
Marissa Priore, president of the Palm Beach Central Interact Club, led the awards ceremony prior to the presentation of the award.
Priore spoke about projects hosted by the high school club, most recently, a car wash raising more than $1,200 to be used for the education and welfare of an orphan from Kenya that the club adopted and pledged to support. The club has several additional car washes planned for the year.
The club is also planning a dodgeball game to benefit Cody’s Angels, a charity to help with scholarships in memory of a Palm Beach Central High School student who died from cancer several years ago.
The Interact Club is a springboard for members who may someday want to join their local Rotary club.
