On June 6, 2019, at its regular meeting, the Flushing Rotary Club awarded its Annual Scholarships to three Flushing High School students who have exhibited significant community service during their high school careers.  Given that Rotary International, and the Flushing Rotary Club are oriented toward service to the community and world, the Flushing Rotary Club scholarships recognize community service and volunteerism as the primary criteria for their awarding.  Academic accomplishment is also a consideration, but second to community service and volunteering.
 
The 2019 Rotary Club of Flushing Scholarship recipients and their respective scholarships are:  Lia Norman received the Gerald & Josie Knight Memorial Scholarship.  Kaylee Czyzio received the Richard & Kathy Merrill Scholarship, and Luke Denno received the At Large Rotary Club of Flushing Scholarship Award.   Each of these students exemplifies the Rotary International motto of "Service above Self" and have engaged in countless hours of volunteer service to the Flushing and surrounding community.   The Flushing Rotary Club congratulates these students on receiving the 2019 Rotary Club of Flushing scholarships and wishes them continued success in their future endeavors and expects that they will continue to engage in community service and volunteer throughout their lifetimes.
