Hannah Swann, Winner of "Best in District Essay Contest"

Hannah Swann was the very special guest speaker at TRC's April 23rd meeting.  This was the first year that Essex students have participated in this regional competition.  Hannah, who is a student at Essex Intermediate School, recently won a standing ovation at Rotary's District Conference as well as a $1,000 award as "Best in District" in the annual Rotary essay contest for her work "The Four Way Test".  Her essay interpreted Rotary's Four Way Test - which is the organization's nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for use in our personal and professional relationships.  Hannah observed:  "Rotary is there to help, and people underestimate it."  Congratulations Hannah!  Awards presented by John Gregory, TRC President, and JoAnn Ruffa, TRC's Next Generations Chair, who coordinated local participation and who continues to inspire all of us from every generation!
