The RC of Denver Mile High presented a certificate of appreciation to Li Pettett, chair of the International Service Committee of the Rotary Club of Parker.  Our club participated in a global grant that provided kidney dialysis equipment for three clinics in Blumenau, Brazil.  The $126,000 project was completed n less than one year and was supported by 26 Rotary Clubs in two districts.
Pictures from left to right:  Chaparral HS Student of the Month, pictured, Dan- father, Jackie - mother, Megan and Rotarian Dennis Brewster.
Megan Steinheimer was named Rotary Student of the Month from Chaparral High School.  Theater has been a major focus in Megan's high school career.Teacher David Petersen tells us that Megan has excelled behind the scenes as a set designer, stage manager and technician.  She handles a rigorous academic schedule with many AP classes, is a member of the National Honor Society.
English teach, Damon Larson tells us that Megan is phenomenal and is a model student - wise, thoughtful, diligent, industrious and intrinsically motivated to learn.  Teacher Lisa Nolte said that Megan scored a "5" on the Advanced Placement exam, which is very difficult to do.  Less than 6% of all students this exam nationally get a "5".  Steve Block, a social studies teach, told us that Megan's work ethic is second to none!  
It was a pleasure to have Megan at our Rotary meeting.
