The Los Alamos Rotary Club has been successful in achieving its mission of service above self, with an emphasis on serving the local youth.
This is according to Tom Lindsay, Gov. of Rotary District 5520, who stopped by Los Alamos Thursday as part of his tour of clubs throughout New Mexico and West Texas.
“The Los Alamos club keeps a balance between local and international service,” said Lindsay, who began his term as district governor July 1. “Locally, they support projects for the youth with scholarships. They’re involved with youth exchange and RYLA.”
The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) rewards youths age 15-18 who demonstrate strong leadership abilities and strong moral fiber. In total, 176 teens throughout New Mexico and West Texas receive a full scholarship every year as a perk to being recognized by Rotary.
Internationally, Los Alamos Rotarians have been involved with an ongoing water supply and sanitation project since 2002, by providing funding and manpower to help build new pipelines in impoverished villages in Guatemala.
“There’s a balance between local and international service,” Lindsay said. “The Los Alamos Club is certainly an example of that.”
