The Road to College program was developed to reach economically disadvantaged students early in their education (8-12 gr) encouraging the student and and their parents to prepare for college. While the program is in force during the entire academic year , the "summer boot camp held on the Midwestern State University serves over 100 students and creates a culture of high expectations and provides instruction in reading , math, writing, speech, and social skills . Last year All seniors who participated in the Road program were accepted into a college. The program will take place in June 2021 at Midwestern State U. (summer boot camp). The total budget from all sources is expected to be $55,000. The estimated contribution from SW Rotary Club is $7500 which comes from club donation as well as revenue sharing from RTC students helping with our flag project. We are requesting a $2500 District Grant to help fund the RTC summer Boot Camp. This will be our Rotary clubs fifth year to participate in this important program.
