Three high school seniors receive scholarship

This was another year of tough decisions. The club has the tough decision to select just one outstanding senior from each high school in Moore. During the year each high school had a senior student attend a Moore Rotary lunch meeting each month to talk about their accomplishments, future goals, and volunteer service. The students selected for the 2020 Moore Rotary Scholarship are representative of our motto "Service Above Self". Read more about these amazing students.

Kalan, served in a leadership role as the Reporter for Moore FFA. As a leader she demonstrated how much she cared about the organization and the people involved. Kalan extended her passion for helping others by getting involved with Special Olympics to help out as much as she could. One of her best experiences was attending the Make Promises Happen camp because it was centered around community service and supporting students with special needs. Her plans are to continue her education to become an occupational therapist, study ASL and have her own practice one day.

Landon stated "A leader that doesn't promote themselves but rather builds up the people around them are the greatest of leaders." He followed through by example. Landon was very active as the captain of the swim team, student council Senator, FCA officer, National Honor Society member, Native American Club member and participated in numerous leadership programs at the school and district level. His community involvement includes work with the Regional Food Bank, Moore Love Campaign, Stop Hunger Now and being on the sound team for St. Andrews United Methodist Church. Landon has verbally committed to swim for the University of Saint Mary in Kansas. He will be a member of Jayhawk ROTC and serve as an officer in the National Guard. His degree will be in education and hopefully come back to teach in Moore Public Schools one day.
