Rotary Club of Hot Springs Village presents Hanamaki gift to ASMSA

4 weeks ago

The Rotary Club of Hot Springs Village presented a $1,000 grant for a student from the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts to participate in a future trip to Hanamaki, Japan.

The Rotary Club of Hot Springs Village shares a “sister Rotary Club” relationship with the Hanamaki Rotary Club through the Sister City program in Hot Springs. As part of the partnership with its Japanese sister club, the Hot Springs Rotary Club awarded $1,000 to the Hanamaki Rotary Club in order to allow a Japanese student to visit Hot Springs, said Paul Bridges, president of the Rotary Club of Hot Springs Village. In return, the Hanamaki Rotary Club awarded a $1,000 to the Rotary Club of Hot Springs Village to send a student to Japan. The Hanamaki Rotary Club chose ASMSA as the beneficiary of the gift.

The gift will be used by ASMSA’s Global Learning Program to support a need-based scholarship for a student to visit Hanamaki in 2019, said ASMSA Director Corey Alderdice.

Bridges said the club’s goal is to strengthen ties and shrink the miles “between two worlds that can learn so much from each other. In keeping with the Rotary motto of ‘Service Above Self,’ we will continue to do all we can to make our world a better place — from both sides of the globe. Exposing young people to the good side of a totally different culture is but one way of doing so.”
