A Cape Coral student and a Cape business leader were among those honored by the Roatary Club of North Fort Myers at the club's recent meeting.
President Danielle Hall passed the gavel on to incoming president Ray Hair, Adam Hromiak was named Rotarian of Year and scholarships were given to several North Fort Myers High students, including one from Cape Coral High School.
Adam Hromiak is a financial advisor for Edward Jones in Cape Coral.
Lucas Doran is the Rotary Exchange Student sponsored by the club that will be going to Ecuador.
"We have a committee that chooses Rotarian of the Year," said outgoing president President Danielle Hall. "Adam was chosen because whenever assistance was needed for a project, he was the first to volunteer. He also helped with organizing volunteers, which is a huge job and has taken on position of our Exchange Student Liaison. We have a student that we are sponsoring to go to Ecuador for a year to go to school."
That student is Lucas Doran, a student at Cape Coral High School who lives in North Fort Myers.
Rotarian Allan Parvey, owner of Parvey & Frankel Law Firm, was chairman of the scholarship committee this year.
"We give out scholarships every year to North Fort Myers High Students who show exceptional grades and extra curriculum activities. This year we had the best crop of applicants we've ever had, the most qualified. It was extremely difficult to award, every one was deserving.
"These are truly deserving students who will have assistance going to college."
The top scholarship recipient is Saige Abrams, recipient of the four-year, $1,000 per year scholarship. She will be attending FSU and majoring in Exercise Science. The second top student is Tiffany Sarg, who will receive $1,000.
"I'll be going to UCF for nursing," she said.
"I'm extremely proud," said mother Lara Sarg, who attended the award ceremony.
Also honored was Service Above Self Award winner Dalton McMullen from North Fort Myers High.
The Rotary meets every Thursday morning at 8 a.m. at The Dolphin Room at the Shell Factory & Nature Park.
The club is always welcoming new members.
