Houghton Rotary Scholarship
Service Above Self
“I am so grateful to wake up each morning with the opportunity to work towards a career I have always dreamed of. I am continuously thankful for all of the help I have gotten along the way, from many incredible people and the support of my hometown organizations including the Houghton Rotary!”
– Wynter Bethel, 2014 Rotary Scholarship Recipient
“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.”
—Rotary International Founder Paul P. Harris
The Houghton Rotary Club has established two scholarships to provide post-secondary financial support and encouragement for students who graduate from Houghton High School. These scholarships are directed to individuals who possess and have demonstrated the aptitude, motivation, and resolve necessary to successfully continue education or training beyond high school. The selection process focuses on applicants’ reasons for pursuing further education and their understanding of and commitment to community service. HHS seniors interested in applying can ask for more information in the guidance counselor’s office.
