The Rotary Club of Yelm is honored to announce Joe Donan as our 2015-16 Student of the Year. Joe Donan is an incredible choice for the Rotary Student of the Year Scholarship. Joe's high school career has shown incredible achievement in class, in multiple leadership activities and on the athletic field. Academically, Joe is a top student who is headed to the University of Washington Bothell Campus to study engineering design. During his time at YHS Joe earned multiple recognitions for his work on the Robotics Team which competed well at the state level. Joe's leadership with the team was exemplified by high levels of collaboration and teamwork which allowed the group to excel at state. Joe has also been a significant leader across campus, helping out with College Signing Day, Prairie Days, student elections and student events. Athletically, Joe competed at the district level in the pole vault and varied events on our track team. Joe is charismatic, positive and always willing to help his peers and teachers. Joe Donan embodies all the core values we communicate here at Yelm High School.
 

 
 
Indigo Keeslar is a terrific young adult who is doing strong academic, athletic and social work here at Yelm High School.  Indigo started his high school years by transitioning from a homeschool environment.  He has quickly ascended into a student in the top 5% of his class while taking a rigorous, college preparatory course load.  Indigo is a captain on our baseball team and he earned first team all-league honors this year as a pitcher and hitter.  Possibly his greatest strength, however, is Indigo's passion for being a good person to others.  He helps his fellow classmates in class.  He is quick with a kind word and an offer to help.  His teachers and coaches love to work with him because he brings a positive, "can-do" attitude to school every day.  Indigo Keeslar is a great choice for student of the month.  
 

 
 
The Rotary Club of Yelm was excited to meet and host Tim Bridgman during his brief stop in Yelm on Thursday, May 19.  Tim has been on a cycle journey around the world in support of one of his favorite organizations, ShelterBox.  He is currently winding his way through the Pacific Northwest heading up to Vancouver, through the Yukon and finally finishing in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
