Awarding of the 2018 Scholarships

The meeting will involve awarding scholarships to 20 high school seniors. Each recipient will tell us a little about themselves and their hopes for the future.
 
The Rotary Club of Los Gatos has a Scholarship Fund which currently has a corpus in excess of $1 million. Fund income is used to provide typically 20 scholarships a year to high school seniors from the Los Gatos and Leigh schools.  Each year the Club awards scholarships totaling approximately $34,000.   The Fund was established in 1947 and every year one third of the net proceeds from the Great Race goes directly into this fund.
 
Scholarship recipients are selected by the club's Scholarship Committee. The applicants are evaluated using the following factors:
 
          - Recommendations from school counselors
          - All applicants are interviewed
          - GPA
          - Participation in school activities - especially if they are a member of the Interact club 
          - Financial need

A Human Trafficking Survivor Finds Life

Jabali Smith is the Executive Director of The Well Child Foundation. Jabali says the vision of this organization is to heal and empower the lives of children and to inspire a new generation of young people to discover  their inner strength and to create the ability and desire to live healthy, happy and successful lives.


I believe it is my duty, and our duty as a society and for humanity as a whole, to break the chain of suffering, silence and shame. And not just child abuse, molestation and human trafficking specifically but all forms of abuse. I hope that by sharing my story I will be able to help other people who have suffered in silence, and give him and her a voice. A voice of confidence, a voice of joy, a voice of self-expression.
