Rotary Help a Student Fund at SCC

The Rotary Club of Batesville gave the Southeastern Career Center a check for $1000 to start the “Rotary Help a Student Fund” to help with any costs to enable students to participate in high quality Career & Technical Programs.

The Southeastern Career Center is the first Career and Technical Education Center that was built in the state of Indiana. In 1964, a group of very forward-thinking educators and business leaders saw a need for a bridge between Industry and Education and saw that it needed to start at the high school level. The Southeastern Career Center strives to provide students with a learning environment that integrates technical skills and academic knowledge, while also promoting work ethics, citizenship, and self-esteem.

The original school districts participating were Batesville, Milan, South Ripley, Sunman, Switzerland, Otter Creek Township, Ohio County, Caesar Creek Township, Clay Township, Jennings County, Sparta Township, and Jac-Cen-Del. If you are interested in finding out more about our club, join us on the first or third Tuesday of each month at the Big 4 Cafe Conference Room at noon in Batesville. Your lunch will be free.

Presidential Citation Award

Our club has again achieved the requirements for the Presidential Citation Award for 2019-20. Our club was one of 10 out of the 32 clubs in the Southern Indiana District 6580 to achieve this award.

Thank you to all the member’s efforts during the previous year. Without their continued commitment to “Service Above Self”, achieving this citation would not be possible.

If you would like to know more about the Batesville Rotary Club, join us for a meeting on the first or third Tuesday of each month at the Big 4 Conference Room at noon. The club will buy your lunch!

The Dictionary Project

The Batesville Rotary Club made their annual contribution of dictionaries to all third graders in Batesville Intermediate and St. Louis elementary schools. Presenting the books is Rotary President, Donald Mobley. Usually the club personally presents the books to the students, but due to health issues, school administrators accepted them on behalf of the students. Approximately 300 books were distributed.

Batesville Rotary Home Repair Grant

The Rotary Club of Batesville was awarded a District Grant from Rotary District 6580 (southern Indiana) for a total amount of $6,000 for the purpose of repairing 2 or 3 homes in the area of Gandou, Haiti.In the area of Gandou, Haiti, there are around 10,000 people living in approximately 2,500 houses. With the earthquake that struck Haiti on January 2010, it was reported that 636 homes were crushed and an additional 480 were damaged in the area of Gandou. A typical home in Gandou is a 2-room building.The main reason for the homes not being repaired is the owners can’t afford the cost to repair them. The people of Gandou, Haiti are an agricultural society that lives off the land. Their income is from selling their crops or crafts that they make. Their income does not generate enough money to feed their families three meals a day. That is why the houses remain in their damaged state. Repairing or rebuilding these homes will get these families out of the elements and improve their health and well-being.

ALISE PIERRE is the second family for this project. Notice most of the walls of the house are fabric.
SONIA PRUNIER has 8 children and has just one-room so we are adding another room during the repair of the old house.
