Nine Prior Lake Rotarians participated in a very inspirational Bridges Senior Recognition Banquet on Thursday June 1st at Fong's. Students were recognized for overcoming a variety of obstacles to graduate from high school. There were many great and funny stories shared along with many tears and hugs. Bridges is the Alternative Learning Center for Prior Lake - Savage School District. The nine Rotarians are mentors in the STRIVE program at Bridges along with five non-rotarian mentors who were also present. The STRIVE program is supported by the Prior Lake Rotary Club. The mentors also awarded their students $500 scholarships for achieving goals in the program. The most improved student was awarded $750.
