Nine Del Norte County students received "Spirit of Rotary" awards from the Crescent City Rotary Club last week.
The honors are selected by administrators and teachers at each school and are awarded each year, according to a Rotary Club press release. The only guideline is that the students demonstrate a commitment consistent with Rotary International's motto "service before self."
Crescent City Rotary Club members awarded honors and a gift certificate to each of the following winners:
Mary Peacock Elementary School - Troy Caul
Bess Maxwell Elementary School - Samson Brown-Uptegraft
Pine Grove Elementary School - Avery Hernandez
Mountain School - Maddy Wiley
Joe Hamilton Elementary School - Sterling Moon
