They are graduating seniors Kim Banak, Johana Guci, Nayfeh Mahmoud, and Nathanial White from Lakewood High School, and Youssef Salama from Rocky River High School. Each will receive a $3,000 award from the Lakewood-Rocky River Rotary Foundation. The $15,000 scholarship program is part of over $60,000 that the Rotary club donates to the community each year.

Rotary’s Swim-A-Thon on March 1 was a resounding success with fire departments in Lakewood and Rocky River benefiting.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River, and organized by Rocky River resident and Rotarian Harlan Radford, the event exceeded its $14,000 goal by over 23%, with $17,252 being raised. The additional funds raised will be utilized by both departments to acquire more needed equipment.
