Claremore Reveille Rotary announces their annual scholarship applications for high school seniors are now available.

Reveille focuses their efforts on our county school systems, so other clubs can focus on Claremore. “Our goal is to reach those high school seniors who may not have access to scholarship opportunities,” said Jeanne Heidlage, Scholarship Chair for the Reveille Rotary Club of Claremore. “We hope every high school senior in Rogers County has an opportunity to pursue higher education.”

There are four scholarships available at $500 each. They are only for high school seniors and are only given one time. Students must be a resident of Rogers County and demonstrate commitment to community service to be considered. Scholarship applications have been shared with counselors at Oologah, Inola, Catoosa, Foyil, Sequoyah, Chelsea, and Verdigris, and are also available online at www.claremorereveille.com. The deadline to submit applications is April 5 by 5:00pm.

Rotary is a service organization whose motto is ‘Service Above Self.’ “The Claremore Reveille Rotary Club fosters this same motto in all that we do,” said Andrews. “Our club celebrated its 20th Anniversary in October, and are currently finishing our 20-4-20; 20 service projects for our twentieth. Each year we provide a new dictionary for every third grader in Rogers County, we participate in the Back To School Bash, host Donuts and Discussions with residents of the Veterans Center in Claremore, just to name a few.”

Reveille Rotary meets weekly at the La Quinta Inn & Suites, 6:45 am and offer a variety of speakers throughout the year. “We encourage anyone interested and looking for a great organization to volunteer and be part of, come join us,” said Jim Scantlin, president-elect. “Our meetings usually last 45 minutes to an hour, then we are all on our way ready for the day, and we enjoy the waffles!”
