Today our Rotary Club presented to Addy Pfitzer and Paxton Laser Citizen of the Month at the Emerald Elementary School assembly. They were nominated by Mr. Chavez for outstanding empathy, integrity and kindness during our Dragon Dash fun run. Even though both kids had qualified for the challenge run, when they came upon a struggling and sad kindergartner, they stopped their challenge runs and ran the rest of the race with that kindergartner (at a snail’s pace). All three crossed the finish line together with an extremely proud kindergartner! This truly is living in the Rotary motto of "Service above Self"!

Pictured with Addy and Paxton are Emerald Elementary School Principal Samara Williams, Rotary President Jeff Power, and Rotary Club Emerald School liaison Carol Norcross.

We are so pleased as a Rotary Club to support Emerald Elementary School, it's outstanding staff, and great students!
