“Santa Monica is fortunate to have so many academically talented and community minded students in the area who have a shared goal of personal growth and civic responsibility,” said Sharon Perlmutter Gavin, Scholarships/Awards Committee Co-chair at Rotary Club of Santa Monica. “The applicant pool was very competitive. It was a welcome challenge to select such deserving students.”

The Rotary Club of Santa Monica was established on February 1, 1922.

The Club created two scholarships at Santa Monica High School in honor of past president Russell Hart and one at St. Monica High School in honor of past president Tom Fox in 1967.

A scholarship at Santa Monica College in honor of past vice-president Nick Holt and a scholarship at Olympic High School in honor of John English were created in 1982.

Two vocational scholarships were created at Santa Monica College under president Dick Rice in 1983, which are named in honor of Archie Morrison.

On the Club’s 50th anniversary in 1972, during the presidency of J. Scott King, the Santa Monica Rotary Foundation was created with an initial value of $50,000 to provide capital funds for worthwhile charitable projects in the community.

In 1997, during the Club’s 75thanniversary celebration, club members pledged over $75,000 for the Santa Monica Rotary Foundation.

Currently, the Foundation has in excess of $550,000 in assets, and has donated over $300,000 to local charities and organizations.

Rotary Club of Santa Monica meets each Friday at 12 p.m. at the Riviera Country Club, 1250 Capri Dr., Pacific Palisades.
