The Peachtree Corners Rotary Club was delighted to have principals and councilors from 11 of the community schools who attended our first meeting of 2012.
One of the primary objectives is our emphasis on education from the local schools though Ambassadorial Scholarships which have given more than 41,000 men and women the opportunity to study abroad.
Our local club puts an emphasis on our neighborhood schools with several programs. A number of our members participate in the mentor program spending time with students after school. The Rotary Club also supports the Interact Club which is a service oriented club.
The Peachtree Corners Rotary Club also highlights local elementary and middle school students through its Student of the Month recognition awards program. Each week we recognize a student from one of our participating schools.
