The Rotary Club of DeLand honored the fifty winners of its 2018 Rotary Achiever Awards at the May 17th luncheon at Wayne G. Sanborn Activity Center. President Eric Nompleggi, assisted by Rotary Achiever Project Chair Bill Stevenson, praised the winners for their significant accomplishments as well as their leadership potential. Rotary Achiever Awards are given annually to West Volusia elementary school students in the fourth and fifth grades who have exhibited the greatest increase in academic achievement during the school year, based on standardized reading tests. The main goal of the Rotary Achiever Program is to instill the concept of rewards received for effort expended. Since 1997, the Rotary Club of DeLand has given out 1037 Rotary Achiever Awards and invested almost $135,000 in this program.
