Hannah Hoffman, daughter of Brian and Carrie Hoffman of Waterloo, was awarded a Lake Mills Rotary Scholarship at the recent Academic Awards Night at Lakeside Lutheran High School. The $750.00 award was presented to Hoffman by Lake Mills Rotary Club President Jim Shaw.
Hoffman was awarded the scholarship based on her academic success as well as character, leadership and participation during her high school years, and her essay on the value of Rotary in the community and her future plans regarding community service. She plans to attend UW-Madison to pursue a degree for an agricultural-based career.
According to Rotary International, Rotary Clubs are committed to service, fellowship, diversity, integrity, and leadership. Supporting education is one of the six top priorities of Rotary, along with promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, and growing local economies. The scholarships are funded primarily through the annual Scholarship Brunch offered to the public each February.
