Rotary Club Awards $126,000 in Scholarships to 23 Katy ISD Seniors
 

In a recent ceremony held at Rustic Beckendorff Farms in Katy, the Rotary Club of Katy recognized 23 students from the Katy Independent School District (KISD) with scholarships to support their college education. Driven by a steadfast commitment, the Rotary Club presented over $120,000 in scholarships to these extraordinary young individuals.

Since 2013, the Katy Rotary has awarded 199 scholarships, amounting to a generous total of $646,500. Each year, the total amount awarded escalates, making a tangible difference in the lives of students. Fundraising events, including the renowned Katy Triathlon, the Katy Rice Harvest Festival, and the nationally recognized Wild West Brewfest, supply the scholarship fund, channeling every sponsored dollar back into the Katy community.

The scholarship program emphasizes both merit and need, illustrating the Rotary Club of Katy's belief in nurturing the potential in every student. This support extends beyond academic excellence, honoring the courage to dream beyond the ordinary.

Seth Janak, a James E. Taylor High School alum, and Ainslie Ferguson, a Cinco Ranch graduate, are two among the many students whose life journeys have been positively affected by these scholarships. Seth says the scholarship will allow him to attend his dream school, Texas A&M, while Ainslie will be able to pursue her ambition to become a biomedical engineer at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Jaime Corona, President of the Rotary Club of Katy, eloquently emphasized the importance of supporting students, stating, "Our students are the heartbeat of tomorrow. Their dreams are our legacy. Together, we build bridges to brighter horizons."

The Rotary Club of Katy, rooted in the community, thrives on its motto, "Service Above Self". The club extends an open invitation for more individuals to volunteer and contribute to their meaningful cause

Helping the Youth of today and future leaders of tomorrow.
 
The Rotary Club of Katy is proud to be able to support the youth in the Katy ISD FFA Auction.  Each year our club and a group of Katy Rotarians called Mega Stuffed combine funds to purchase as many animals as possible.  With the animals that we purchase, we process them and donate the meat to families in need, veterans undergoing treatment for PTSD and homeless food pantries.  Charities that benefit:  Katy Christian Ministries, Camp Hope and Hope Impacts.
 
Animals purchased and processed this year:  2 steers, 6 hogs, 11 goats, 1 lamb for a total of 20 animals
 
We are helping out 20 FFA students and we managed to have at least 1 from each of the 9 high schools represented!
Today was a fun day, as we were able to distribute money raised from our three fundraisers to different organizations.  Congratulations to the following organizations:

Katy Christian Ministries
Boy Scouts of America
Hospital La Vega
Hope Impacts
The ARC of Katy
Keep Katy Beautiful
YMCA
Operation Turkey
Katy ISD FFA
71 Rotarians from the Rotary District 5890 and Rotary Club of Katy had a blast at the Houston Astros Baseball game July 24.   Thank you to Jamie Corona for planning this outing. 
Today was a glorious day!  All of your support and hard work from The Rotary Club of Katy paid off in over $71,000 in grant distributions to charitable organizations that serve our community.
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Katy and the Mega Stuffed (rotarians) attend the KISD FFA Rodeo Parade and Auction.  Their sole focus is to purchase animals from the kids and have the meat processed.  Once processed, then we deliver them to local charities like the Katy Chritian Ministries and Camp Hope.  It is our a joy to fill their freezers with meat.
