Program for October 23, 2018
Personalized Learning through Innovative Education at Manson High
Speakers: Jennifer Koth and Addie Gragreda
Program Sponsors: Diane Leigh and Dan Hodge
Our speakers this week will be Jennifer Koth, Manson High School's Career Choices teacher, and Addie Gragreda, who is Manson High School's Post-Secondary Coordinator in charge of the Internship Program. Some amazing things are happening at Manson High School. Students are engaged in student-led learning that creates a natural integration of courses as they explore topics not traditionally offered in a small school. Their studies are exciting, relevant and multi-faceted - involving project-based learning, opportunities for internships, college credits, and a lot more. Emphasis is put on helping students with post-high school preparation, from mock job interviews, to the Buzz on Biz Entrepreneurial Program supported by our own Rotary club, to individualized teacher advocates who guide students to be successful in their college or career choices.
Pingrey Park Cleanup...Complete

On Saturday, October 13, Community Service Team 2 was joined by other Rotarians as Fall cleanup of the Pingrey Park wall and surrounding landscape wrapped up. Watch for exciting changes next year to this gateway into Chelan as the planned mural project progresses. Thank you to Ty Witt, Lester Cooper, Karen Feek, Randi Burchett, Don Christenson, Kelly Allen, Randy Brooks, Lisa Wells and Karen Takagi for your efforts. It looks great! With that being said, the community projects have come to an end for the season. Stay tuned for next year!
