Senior Kyle Doering, son of Matthew and Jill of Lake Mills, was awarded a $2,000 Lake Mills Rotary Scholarship.
Doering was awarded the scholarship based on his character, leadership, scholarship, and participation during his high school years as well as his essay on the value of Rotary and service in the community. He plans to attend Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn., to pursue a degree in Elementary and Social Studies Education.
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.
