Everyone knows if you buy into an idea at an early age, odds are excellent you’ll stay tied to those principals throughout your life.
Which is why we at the Rancho Bernardo Sunrise Rotary Club take heart when students at the Turtleback Elementary School come in for their Service Above Self Awards. Shown here are the current batch of visionaries - (L-R) Emma Litzenberg, Theresa Skiano and Arianna Malcolm - each with their respective families and cheerleading sections.
These kids represent a brighter tomorrow, and it’s comforting to see them being recognized for helping each other and the community at-large. Award nominees are typically cited by their peers with comments like “I was new in school and didn’t know anybody when she came over and sat next to me on the playground,” or “Johnny and I were fighting, and Tommy held my jacket so it wouldn’t get torn.”
Today we seem to live in a world where nobody is interested in getting along, talking with strangers, or learning from each other. Our young friends (and leaders of tomorrow) have taught us all something valuable.
Now…if only we adults are smart enough to hear what they’re saying.
To get involved in shaping future generations and making the world a better place to live, visit the RB Sunrise Rotary any Tuesday morning from 7:00-8:30 am at the Rancho Bernardo Country Club on Greens East Road. Or learn more about us at
