Rotarian Phil Kerber received a Paul Harris Fellow +6 today. Phil has been a member of 3 Rotary Clubs in the past 50 or so years.

Phil has been dedicated to Rotary and Rotary’s mission, serving others before himself, for decades, but it is his dedication to our community that makes him stand out in our club. As a token of our appreciation of Phil, he was given an honorary membership to the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club.

Featured Segment

S.T.R.I.P.E.S has been a successful program at Irondale High School in Mounds View Minnesota because of the efforts of Dean of Equity Services, Marvin Sims. Sims has developed the S.T.R.I.P.E.S program to address the achievement gap at District high schools. Transforming at-risk kids into successful students who are prepared for college or other life ventures is what (S.T.R.I.P.E.S), Students Together Respecting the Importance and Purpose of Education in Schools, is all about.

I Read for Need is an elementary school reading program, developed by Dr. Greg Ulrich, that encourages the love of reading, by giving students the opportunity to earn cash for the charity of their choice.
