David Rickert and Barry Blonder from The Rincon Rotary Club of Tucson, give Bloom Elementary School second grade teacher Stephanie Werner a check to reimburse her for the purchase of Scholastic News Subscriptions for her entire 2nd grade class. In conjunction with the Veteran's Day theme of the current Scholastic News, Mr. Rickert and Mr. Blonder took some time to discuss with the students their military service in the Air Force and Army respectively.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary Local Program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary Local can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
