Rotary bike winners for 1st nine weeks announced

Students  from Lincoln Elementary who received bicycles through the Rotary Club’s Roll Call program include (front row, left to right): Kyle Wilkerson, Mara Sudduth, Jr. Krone and Samantha Rambo. These kids are in the 5th-6th grade category. Rotary Club sponsors are (from left to right, behind): Heather Roehrick and Ron Sanders, Lincoln Elementary Principal Dr. Alexander, Rotarians Gerron Smith, Robert Abraham and Ann Manchester. 

 Back for its second year, Chickasha Rotary Club’s Roll Call program recently recognized local students who maintained perfect attendance during the entire first nine weeks of school. 

The club’s attendance incentive program is designed so that any student achieving perfect attendance during a nine-week period is recognized with a certificate of merit from the Rotary club. 

Even better, students have their names entered to win one of eight bicycles given away each nine weeks to students in grades 3-6. A drawing is held each nine weeks allowing the club to give away a total of 32 bicycles complete with locks and helmets over the course of the school year. 

“This is a great way to share the importance of school attendance and just try to get kids excited and encourage them to be at school,” said Rotary Club President Gerron Smith. “Part of the Rotary Club’s mission is to give back to our communities and take action to create lasting change for the betterment of our citizens and community. These kids are the future leaders of Chickasha, so what better place to start?” 

Rotary members and local educators are pleased with the program results and hope to see continued rise in the number of kids with perfect attendance.
