Rotary Club of San Saba to hold 37th annual Honor Student Banquet

Article Image Alt Text

The Rotary Club of San Saba will present their 37th Annual Honor Student Banquet Thursday, May 16th, at the San Saba Civic Center. The banquet will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Begun in 1982, the San Saba Rotary Club Honor Student Banquet is a way the club can encourage local high school students to achieve high scholastic standards. All San Saba County high school students who maintain a 90 or better average for the academic year are invited to be a guest of the club for the event.

In the late 1980’s, San Saba High School math teacher and retired army officer, Joe Gary, suggested that the club have a medal cast that could be presented to the student honorees. A few years later, the club began presenting a shadowbox to those students who have been four-year honorees.

Approximately 13 members made the short trip to Goldthwaite to enjoy the Botanical Gardens and Native American Interpretive Center.

The group was welcomed by Savannah Early, Garden Manager of the facility. After a brief discussion of how the Center came to be, Club members were led on a tour of the gardens.

Very artistic signs were along the way explaining how the Indians lived off the land. Savannah described each tree, shrub or flower in the Center and told how the Indians once used these for food and medicines. The Center offers programs and classes for groups of all ages to help teach the things that aren't common in public education.
