They are active in student government, they excel at academics and athletics, they are involved in community programs, they are respected by their peers, and on Wednesday, May 17 seven Ely Memorial High School Seniors were saluted at a special luncheon honoring the 2017 class of Junior Rotarians.
Family members and Rotarians watched a video highlighting their achievements and each student was presented with a recognition certificate.
Future plans for the group include more studies: Felipe is returning to school in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Caroline Homer and Josh Heiman will be attending the Military Academy at West Point, Erin Bianco is headed to St Olaf College, Anna Urbas is going to St Scholastica, Teddy Pierce will be attending Colby College, Cate Deremee is enrolling in Gustavus Adolphus College and Zach Dean will be at University of Minnesota Duluth.
