Back in 1917 a group of thirty-four local business and professional men got together to charter the Rotary Club of Waxahachie. The charter members got together because they had heard that Rotary was organized to do good works and to provide interaction among professionals. With a little more information about the concept some of the men began to talk about it among themselves. They found out how to make application for a club charter and in late 1916 they sent off the application to Rotary International headquarters in Chicago

In this week’s Rotary meeting, Rotarian Clyde Melick had the pleasure of introducing Global High School’s assistant principal Jamie Mills as a special guest. Mr. Mills then presented the Global High School Student of the Month Award for October to Johnathan Salter.
Johnathan is the son of Bryon and Traci Salter of Waxahachie. He is a sophomore at Global this year and the school is very proud to offer this award to such a deserving student. Johnathan excels both academically and civically in all that he does.
As an active participant in Interact, Johnathan’s favorite service activity is Hidden Miracles. Hidden Miracles is a service provided by the Cowboy Church of Ellis County to parents of mentally and physically challenged children. Interact members volunteer to entertain and care for these children for several hours a month so their parents can have an evening out.
