Rotary Club of Humble To Award 11 Scholarship Winners
The Humble Rotary Club will award 11 scholarships to Humble ISD Students April 17ty. Two Community Award Recognizing Excellence in Service (CARES) scholarships, one for $5000 and another for $2000, three Four Way Test Essay contest winners, totaling $4500 and 6  Jack Fields Sr. Endowment Foundation scholarships.
As part of the CARES scholarship application process, candidates are asked to provide a brief statement about their community service and how this experience impacted them. Additionally, they are asked to explain how they will use Rotary’s investment to further impact their service to the community. The criteria used in the selection of candidates was based on service, financial need, academic record, community and/or extracurricular activities, leadership, and work experience.
Three scholarships to winners of the annual Four Way Test Essay contest will be awarded. The three winners will be awarded $2000, $1500 and $1000.. The contestants address “How I apply high ethical standards using Rotary’s Four-Way Test.” The Four-Way Test is the corner stone of ethical practice among all members of Rotary International. They will read their essays at the meeting.
Dr. Michael Say, education committee chair, indicated that the objective of the contest is to promote Rotary’s ethical standards expressed in Rotary’s Four-Way Test. The test consists of the following questions: Is it the Truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
The six Rotary Jack Fields Sr. Endowment Foundation scholarships are given in recognition of the service to the community of Jack Fields Sr.  He was a charter member of the Rotary Club of Humble and served for 21 years on the Humble ISD School Board.  The requirements for consideration for the scholarship are academic excellence and scholarship need.
“These scholarships are an important part of Humble Rotary’s commitment to education. We are committed to providing our youth the opportunity to change their lives through education,” said Dr. Michael Say, education committee chair for the Rotary Club of Humble.
