One of the Boothbay Harbor Rotary Club's most important roles is to invest in the young people of this region. We helped found and continue to be strong supporters of the Boothbay Region Student Aid Fund, and we also write numerous scholarships to help our area's young people fulfill their dreams.
In 2009, we honored graduates (and Interactors) Danica Ramsey-Brimberg (left) and Morgan Mitchell, shown here with Morgan's "little sister" (and future Rotarian) Chelsie Graves.
Boothbay Region High School graduate Devon Mellor was the 2008 winner of our $1000 Rotary scholarship, thanks to his record of academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community service.

Boothbay Region students (from left) Troy Plummer, Maddie Chamberlain, and Katrina Smith were each been the recipient of a recent Rotary Club grant. In January 2008 they came to the Club to tell of their experiences and to thank Rotarians for their scholarships. Troy and Katrina both traveled to Australia last summer with the People to People Student Ambassador program, and Maddie spent a week at the National Young Scholars Program in Schenectady, New York.
