Brookline, Massachusetts

Scholarship Breakfast

On June 3, 2018, several members of Brookline Rotary attended the Annual Brookline High School Scholarship Breakfast.  This has become a wonderful Brookline tradition acknowledging our very impressive BHS graduates.  The class of 2018 was as outstanding as past graduates and Brookline Rotary is proud to join Scott Butchart (see story on page 2), his team at the High School, Brookline Community Foundation and the other scholarship donors in honoring these amazing young people.  Donors are seated with the recipients and Brookline Rotary had the pleasure of meeting Shahar Hartman, one of our recipients.  Shahar was heading off to Washington DC the following week to receive a Congressional Gold Medal Award in addition to his awards on the third.  Missing from the photo is Bo Winiker who raised the $100,000 to endow scholarships held by the Brookline Community Foundation.  Present are Claudia Dell'Anno, Club President, Shahar, Susan Rack, Literacy Chair.
 
On June 7, 2018, Brookline Rotary honored retiring Dean Scott Butchart, for his commitment and service to the students of Brookline High School by presenting him with a Paul Harris Fellow, the highest award that the club bestows.  Over the years, Scott has helped Brookline Rotary in its many student projects including RYLA and our Scholarship Program.  A favorite at BHS, Dean Butchart  has taught for 34 years and headed the scholarship program with fairness, sensitivity, humor and grace.  He will be missed.  Paul Harris Fellow is given to those who exemplify the Rotary motto of Service Above Self and in recognition of a $1000 donation to the Rotary Foundation.  Brookline Rotary was honored to make that donation in Scott's name.
