Each year, the West Grove-Avondale Rotary Club recognizes eight outstanding junior and senior students from Avon Grove High School. The students are invited, together with parents and their principal, to join the members of the Rotary Club during one of their regular breakfast meetings on the third Thursday of each month at 7 a.m. at the Alison Building at Jenners Pond.
The students are invited to speak before the club members about their scholastic activities, sports, outside interests and future goals. Lynn Klingensmith, the club president, presents a certificate to each student, along with a $25 gift certificate to a bookstore.
