On Wednesday, May, 22, 2019, seven DC Rotary Club members attended the Columbia Heights Educational Campus (CHEC) 34th Annual Scholarship Gala at the Embassy of France. The Rotary Club of Washington, D.C. was presented with the Partner of the Year Award in front of 300+ guests for our contributions in Chartering the CHEC Interact Club, sponsoring seven CHEC students to RYLA, hosting the 2019 DC Foundation Career Fair, serving as panelists for Senior Portfolio presentations and for awarding them a $20, 000 Community Service Grant last year.  Three DC Rotarians, including our very own Club President, donated auction items for the gala. We are proud to accept this prestigious reward! The collaboration with Columbia Heights Educational Campus has been enriching, and we look forward to many years of partnering. #ServiceAboveSelf
