“Each year our club’s members look forward to the distribution of funds to these ambitious and bright high school graduates on their way to further their education” said John Hollenbeck, this year’s club president. “Great appreciation goes out to club member Mark Jensen who has for many years been charged with reviewing applications and interviewing students, and each year he reports it is more challenging to narrow the field because our school produces such great students”, Hollenbeck said.

The Rotary Club of Atascadero was chartered February 8, 1950. The Club Foundation was formed in 1991 and over the past 10 years has contributed in excess of $100,000 in local high school scholarships.
