TRUSSVILLE – The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club has announced a scholarship award for a recipient from Restoration Academy (RA).
Kayla Patterson is a senior at RA. She is a visual artist and a member of the tennis team. She plans to attend UAB this fall to become an art therapist, using her gift as an artist to help others.
The Rotary Club is pleased to present Kayla with a $1,000 scholarship to help further her education. Kayla and her mother were on-hand at a recent Rotary meeting for the presentation.
Proceeds from rotary fundraising events, including the coordination of a golf tournament for more than 25 years, go toward the club’s many projects. Those projects include leadership opportunities for local high school students, Dr. Seuss books for local elementary students, ribbons at City Hall in recognition of Veterans’ Day, lunch for campers and staff at Smile-a-Mile, trees planted at Civitan Park, and more.
The Club has recently funded the new clock tower in downtown Trussville, benches at the walking track at Cahaba Elementary, and playground equipment at the Mall in historic Trussville.
The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club meets at First Baptist Church Trussville on Wednesday mornings at 7 a.m. For more information on the Club, or to help with one of our projects, please ‘like’ us on Facebook (Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club)
