With a great deal of pleasure, PDG Phil Lustig surprised FAU HS Associate Director David Kelly with a special honor making David a Paul Harris Fellow.  The Paul Harris Fellow award is granted in recognition of $1,000 donated to The Rotary Foundation by or on behalf of the recipient.  PDG Phil made sure this happened on behalf of our club to recognize the extraordinary effort and difficult task or selecting excelling students from among so many high achievers in the FAU HS program. 
David helped us from the beginning of the project when Mathieu Daquin excited our club to establish the Rotary Boca Raton Sunset FAU Senior of the Month and ultimately Scholar of the Year for 2013.  When our club determined that it was beyond our collective capacity to make the difficult judgement and selection of one among eight superstars to recognize as the Scholar of the Year, we decided to increase the award and honor all eight equally in the 2014-15 FAU HS Rotary Scholar of the Month project.  This of course put the entire selection burden on David, and he rose to the challenge.  He has helped us improve this project each year as we get to know and honor the best among these great students.  For the 2018-19 FAU HS Scholar of the Month series, we are hoping to enhance the project again by providing special support for exceptional students who also have additional financial needs.
