Winning essays honored

Rotarians around the world have successfully used The 4-Way Test for many decades as an effective measuring stick for conduct and a guide to right thinking.

1. Is it the Truth?

2. Is it Fair to all concerned?

3. Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?

4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

The Tahoe Douglas Rotary club plans to sponsor an essay contest on The 4-Way Test for fifth-grade students at Kingsbury Middle School annually. The service club recently conducted the first contest and recognized the winners during the April 13 luncheon meeting.

A committee of club members chaired by Tony Grasso voted the writings of Krysta Olsen, Jordan Reeder and Megan Alexander as the best. Krysta and Jordan read their essays to the audience that included their proud parents. Megan could not attend but Krysta read her essay.

In addition, Grasso presented a beautiful plaque inscribed with the winners’ names to Kingsbury Middle School Principal Dr. Nancy Rollston.
