Congratulations to Significant Achiever Award recipients

Each year, the The Rotary Club of Glen Ellyn gives special recognition to several students from Glenbard South and Glenbard West who have made significant achievements in areas other than athletics and academics.

The award recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding effort in achieving personal goals; significant leadership; outstanding courage, resourcefulness, selflessness; and have significantly contributed time to community or other volunteer services.

RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
The purpose of the program is to recognize young people who have demonstrated leadership skills or show the potential to be leaders, and provide them with an opportunity to explore and further develop these skills with other with similar capabilities.
Glenbard West and South students and RYLA leaders sponsored by their schools and the Glen Ellyn Rotary Club.

When is a grocery store more than a grocery store?

When it exists to serve you instead of make a profit for others. When it provides fresh and truly local products. When you and your neighbors own it.

The Generational Shift: Navigating a Way Forward



Millennials are causing quite a stir in the workplace. As 75% of the workforce by 2025, they are here at 88 million strong. This coupled with the fact that only 18% of Millennials plan on staying with their current organization over the long term, highlights the importance of establishing a bridge-building plan for organizations with the greatest potential in leveraging the current multi-generational workforce. An organization with the ability and agility to adapt yet maintain integral parts of its DNA is essential to retain top quality Millennials that work with other generations and continue to build a sustainable organization that withstands this generational transition. With Millennial turnover costing the U.S. economy $30.5 billion every year, these factors become critical to an organization’s ability to thrive and innovate.

When you give $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant. To recognize someone else as a Paul Harris Fellow, you can give that amount in their name. This month we have eight additional Paul Harris Fellows. Several of the members represented here are multiple Paul Harris Fellows.
