Rotary Club of Glendive and Dawson College Foundation recently announced a $750 scholarship has been awarded to Haley Olson of Richey.
Haley Olson is the daughter of Harlyn and Jana Olson. Throughout high school, she participated in leadership roles in student council, FFA, and various athletic teams. Olson plans to attend Dawson Community College where she will play basketball and focus her studies towards a future career in allied health and nursing.
“I am grateful and honored to be selected for this award and appreciate the Rotary Club enabling me to achieve my dreams with this scholarship,” Olson said.
The Rotary Club of Glendive was chartered in 2008 and established a scholarship for Dawson Community College students in 2012 when Peggy Iba served as President; Sandra Cargill, a former Rotary President, was the Foundation’s Executive Director; and Kyle Milne was the Foundation Board’s President. The scholarship has grown and become permanently endowed.
Rotary’s purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace around the world. The Rotary International motto of Service Above Self is reflected in their community service, including promoting opportunities for education and literacy.
Rotary Club of Glendive meets every Monday at noon at the Yellowstone River Inn except for the third Monday of each month, when they meet at 5 p.m. for a social. Current President Jerry Jimison invites anyone interested in fellowship and service to attend a meeting or visit www.rotary.org. Newly elected Glendive Rotary Club officers include Connie Hilger, Deb Toepke, Adam Gartner, and Scott Woodward.
“We appreciate the Rotary Club of Glendive for this generous donation and their continued support of this endowment for students attending Dawson Community College,” said Dennis Harp, Executive Director of the Dawson College Foundation.
