Rotary helps expand kids’ vocabulary
SunAmerica Financial Group made a donation to Struthers Rotary of $7,500 on behalf of Rotarian and Sun America employee Tom Baringer. With this donation and contributions from other club members, the Rotary was able to apply for a literacy grant. The grant has allowed the Rotary to donate dictionaries to third- and fourth-graders in Struthers, St. Nicholas, Lowellville and Campbell. Also for each school, a donation of atlases, fourth-grade thesauruses, encyclopedia dictionaries, Spanish/English dictionaries and dictionary/animal gazetteers were made available to students. Pictured are Rotarians Marge Diorio, front left, Tom Baringer, Mike Evanson and Paul Paris with third- and fourth-grade students from Struthers Elementary and some of their donated books.
