Rotarians Making a difference for survivors of Hurricane Harvey

story thumbnail

Cassandra Felan and her family were just one of two families that recently received donations from the Rotary Club of Alice.

Felan and another family were uprooted when Hurricane Harvey hit the Coastal Bend in Aug. 25, 2017. Felan is a native of Alice, but was living in Port Aransas with her husband and children.

The family initially decided to ride out the storm in their home. However, as the hurricane intensified they evacuated back to Alice with family.

Thanks to generous donations from the community to the Rotary District 5930′s Emergency Relief Fund two families in the Alice community were able to get assistance from monetary donations to basic essentials.

Perez Wins Rotary Scholarship

From the Alice Echo News Journal
Four Alice High School students were awarded scholarships on Wednesday afternoon after their participation in The Rotary Club of Alice's speech contest.
First place went to Jose Perez for his speech on unifying the world through education. Garza received a $500 scholarship.
Second place and winner of the $300 scholarship was Eainy Eberhard for her on political culture and the differences in her family that united them. Third place with a $200 scholarship was awarded to Esbardo “EJ” Alaniz who explained the importance of overcoming fears and how by doing so the rest of society benefits. Fourth place winner with a $100 scholarship was Paige Beltran for her decision to go to college and pursue her dreams.
The individuals competed in a four-way test speech contest with a topic of their choice. In the students speech's four questions were answered about how each question related to their specific topic.
Perez will have a chance to perfect his speech for Area 6 Competition on March 6 with students from Freer High School, San Diego High School and Three Rivers High School.
Volunteer judges for the contest were Dee Dee Arismendez, Gail Hoffman and John Bedgood, who focused on the content of the speech not only on the speech presentation.
Questions were: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
After the March 6 contest the finalist will compete in Corpus Christi.
