Meki McCoy. A senior at Ft. Hayes Arts & Academic High School. I've enjoyed working with graphics for a long time. Now that I am in Graphics Design class, I am adding to my skills and applying them in a variety of settings. This is especially true with my service on the Rotary Design Team.

Tyler Cuevas. A senior at Ft. Hayes Arts & Academic High School. I found out about this opportunity through my graphic design instructor Mr. Keith Morefield. I was then introduced to Rick Studer and offered a spot on the Columbus Rotary design team. I’ve never been involved with a club before this so this is a new experience for me which makes it a lot more exciting. This opportunity has made it possible for me to practice my skill in design in the real world and get experience with meeting deadlines and working with other people. After high school, I plan on attending classes to obtain my license in real estate and pursue my dream of being a successful realtor.

This is a great opportunity for me and will allow me to increase my social skills as well as graphic design skills.




2014-2015 Team:


 Ama Pobi


Sophomore: Columbus Alternative High School. I was introduced to this project through an internship with our school’s internship coordinator, Mrs. Samantha Smith. She then connected me with Mr. Rick Studer who invited me to help. Serving on the website team has given me the opportunity to develop my skills in film script writing, film production, and editing.  I have also learned how to help promote the values of community service.

Junior: Columbus Alternative High School. Our internship coordinator, Mrs. Samantha Smith, told me about this project. I have had interest in service clubs and Rotary before this internship which makes working on this team extra special. My mentor, Rick Studer, has been guiding me through building the Student "Service Above Self" Project section of the Columbus Rotary website, organizing documents and files, and thinking about sharing this project with Rotary clubs across the nation. I have learned web development, business skills, and life lessons I will never forget. I currently plan on attending the University of Washington after high school and experience the world after graduating.
