On Monday we welcomed fellow Elkhart Rotarian and Executive Director of Elkhart Education Foundation, Charmaine Torma!

Charmaine shared information about EEF, educational challenges faced by our community, and how EEF is addressing those challenges.

EEF, a 501(c)(3) organization, manages and expends funds received from donations that support the mission, vision and goals of the Elkhart Community Schools. EEF provides funds for innovative teaching practices, education programs and activities – Athletics, Arts, Academic Clubs/Service Organizations – that are outside of the parameters of the traditional operating budget for Elkhart Community Schools. The funds provided by EEF will be used to facilitate student achievement and skill development, to recognize and encourage staff excellence, and to cultivate community involvement from individuals, businesses and civic organizations.

Welcome back former member and longtime Rotarian Scott Franko! Scott and his wife are relocating back to the Elkhart area after several years away and are excited for the new adventures ahead. Scott was inducted back into our club membership on Monday.
