EDINBURG – The Edinburg Rotary recently recognized the valedictorians and the salutatorians from the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District’s four high schools during its luncheon meeting at the Echo Hotel in Edinburg.
“It’s been a wonderful year. We have highlighted lots of students from the school district,” Edinburg Rotary President Diane McLarty said. “We enjoyed hearing the success stories from the valedictorians and the salutatorians of each of the area high schools. We are so happy to be able to participate in the wonderful things the students do.”
The students’ recognition is part of the Edinburg Rotary’s Student of the Month Program, which highlights two senior students from each high school.
“Edinburg Rotary has supported the students for a very long time,” McLarty said. “This year, we gave $20,000 to the Edinburg school district through the form of scholarships and Hurricane Harvey relief programs. Recently, we approved a request to fund some school uniform shirts for an elementary school coming up this next school year. So we always enjoy that opportunity to work with the kids.”
