Put and end to Polio and COVID-19 by Jerry Gass

For those of us old enough to remember, hearing the word polio brings back major discomfort.   It brings the vision of young children being crippled for life or crying in agony while living in iron lungs.   It was certainly a time of celebration when the Salk vaccine was developed and then widely dispersed.   Since that time, tremendous improvement has occurred in most countries of the world in eradicating polio.

The Rotary Club of Blanco County Awards Scholarships by Niki Lockwood

             
 
The Rotary Club of Blanco County recently announced the award of $1000 scholarships to four deserving high school seniors, two from Blanco High School and two from Johnson City High School.  Each school will publicly announce the recipients at an appropriate ceremony of their choosing.  The students will further their education at a university or technical training school.  The students are:
 
-Alvin Lopez and Dooley Smith, JCHS 
-Mitchell Barnett and Adelyn Seymour, BHS
 
The Rotary Board evaluated twelve applicants, six from each school, all of whom were extremely qualified.  The evaluation was based on their academic record, a personal letter to the board, extra-curricular actives, and community service.  The board was impressed by the breadth and depth of each applicant’s credentials.  All were outstanding students in their own right.   They will be introduced to the membership at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 1 during a virtual club meeting.
