On November 30, 2017, the Rotary Club of King recognized Kaylie Moore, daughter of Jamin and Kilynda Moore of King, as the first-quarter recipient of the club’s “Good Citizen of the Quarter” award. The club honored her with a plaque and the opportunity to win a $1,000 renewable scholarship.
Moore was chosen for the award by the Scholarship Committee of Stokes Early College High School because of her outstanding high school record including excellence in academic achievements, service to the school and community, and demonstrated positive character traits. At the end of the 2017-18 academic year, Moore and three additional recipients of the award will apply and interview for the King Rotary Club Scholarship. One student will be selected to receive a $1,000 renewable scholarship, and the other three will each receive a one-time award of $350.
Moore plans to graduate in the spring of this year with both a high school diploma and an Associate in Arts Degree from Forsyth Technical Community College and enter Liberty University in the fall. She is involved in a number of student and community organizations including the Stokes Early College Interact Club of which she serves as club president and the Youth Program of Reynolda First Presbyterian Church.
The Rotary Club of King administers its scholarship program at both Stokes Early College High School and West Stokes High School. The club adheres to the guiding principle of Rotary International, “Service above Self,” and strives to serve the community through its programs in education and literary, peace and conflict resolution, disease prevention, economic and community development, clean water and sanitation, and maternal and child health. It meets each Thursday at 7 a.m. at P.B. Clark’s Family Restaurant in King. Guests are invited to attend club meetings with a formal invitation or prior notice.
