Being an advisor wIth our Dover High Interact Program, it was a goal of mine to get the Early Act Community Service program at Dover Middle School. Over the past year, with the help of our President Elect, Gregg Dowty and Dover Middle School Principal, Kimberly Lyndes to create the Student of the Month program that recognizes a Dover Middle School student each month for above and beyond based on “service above self” through kindness and compassion to others in school or within their community.
For the month of September, we presented 7th grader, Luisa Pellitier for her kindness of others and celebrated her award with her classmates and parents. 
The Rotary Club of Dover recognizes the accomplishment of our youth in our community and present the award each month at the middle school and a quarterly recognition of the students at a Rotary meeting Where they will receive A donation from the Rotary Club who their choice of charity for projects that they are working with. 
I am grateful for her involvement in the program forward to our announcement of the Student of the Month for October.
