to mention in public.
|Ursula Maina, our Student of the Month
Ursula Maina is a kind,
conscientious student at the Arlington Middle School. She has
attended AMS for 8 years of her grammar school education. If you
asked her what her favorite
subject is, she says, “there are too many to choose from, I
can’t decide.” She is a strong student leader. She has
already earned a Student of the Month Award from her peers for
the 2014-2015 school year. Her goal is to attend Phillips
Academy in the fall. Her teachers unanimously support her
in this endeavor. She is described by her teachers as
always ready to work, responsible, respectful of herself and
others, and her work is of top quality. She is a
consistent contributor to classroom discussion and is respectful
of her peers. She is someone who helps others when needed and
she has many friends. It is with great pleasure that we
honor Urusula Maina with this award.
Glenn Rogers was the speaker of the day.
His address was aimed at having the Club become a significant
contributor to the Eliminate Project over the next five years.
The Club can meet the challenge of helping
eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus in babies and mothers
throughout the world with a contribution.
To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than
100,000,000 mothers and their future babies must be
immunized. One baby dies every nine minutes from
tetanus. $1.80 protects one waman and her future babies
Donating $500 would save 275 lives or $500 on
the average for each of our members over the five year period
fifty times that number.
Individuals have the same opportunity. Two
individuals have already indicated their desire to donate $1,500
as special individual gifts, either one-time or over two
years. For that comes not only the satisfaction of saving
lives and the suffering associated with the affliction but also
a framed Centennial Award medallion and lapel pin. Similar
opportunities come with donations of lesser amounts.

The Club has already raised over $500 through
the purchase of gift and debit cards through the Great Lakes
Scrip offerings. Click
