RECAP: RCFC’s Role in Expanding International Outreach
Last Wednesday, Robin Steele, Chair of our International Projects and Grants Committee, reminded us how IPG puts our Foundation contributions to work around the world in support of Rotary’s mission - to do good in the world.

The 7 areas of Rotary’s focus were listed on last week’s Rotogear.  Remarkably, Rotary Foundation’s reach is greater than that of the United Nations!

March Cadet of the Month

Congratulations to Cadet Cayden Lee being selected as March Cadet of the Month! Cayden hails from Topeka, KS, is in his final freshman semester and pursuing studies towards a Natural Resources Management degree with a 4.0 GPA, to graduate in May 2027. He recently scored an impressive 595 score out of 600 eligible points on his Army physical fitness test, which postured him to be an active, leading member of the Ranger Challenge Team and Northern Warfare Competitor. Over the next few years, Cayden will hone in on what Army career field he would like to request after commissioning. He rounds out his time enjoying hunting and spear fishing. Rotary sends Cayden best wishes as he continues to excel in the demanding Army ROTC program!
