The Batavia Rotary Club awarded Paul Harris Fellowships to four local individuals on June 1st at the annual awards dinner. The award is named for the founder of Rotary International and is the highest honor a Rotary Club can award. This year, Batavia Rotary Club recognized two of it's own, Bill Brown, former president of WBTA and Susie Boyce, all-around community volunteer. Also named Paul Harris Fellows; community members Mary Pat Hancock for her tireless years of service to the Genesee County Legislature and Paul Saskowski for his efforts on behalf of the Annual Rotary Club musical.
The Batavia Rotary Club announced the winners of the Annual Rotary Club Scholarship. The Scholarship Committee, chaired by Bill Fritts, received applications and interviewed students from Batavia High School, Notre Dame High School and BOCES. Typically, one student from each school is selected to recieve the scholarship; $1,500 per year for four years. This year, with two equally compelling applications, the scholarship for a BOCES student was split. Resulting in two deserving students who will recieve $750 each for four years.
