The Rotary Club of King recently recognized Kaitlyn Barham, daughter of David and Nichole Barham of Pine Hall, as the second-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.
Barham 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 demonstrating positive character traits. At the end of the 2017-18 academic year, Barham 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 scholarship renewable for a maximum of three consecutive years of study, and the other three will each receive a one-time award of $350.
Barham plans to graduate in the spring of this year with both a high school diploma and an Associate in Science Degree from Forsyth Technical Community College and begin university studies in the fall. She is involved in a number of student and community organizations including the Stokes Early College Interact Club and the Forsyth Tech Student Government Association and in a wide variety of service activities.
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; wellness and disease prevention,; economic and community development; and clean water and sanitation. 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
