2011 Academic Honors Luncheon

The Waterloo Rotary Club annually recognizes senior honor students of the Waterloo high schools and their principals.  Through this recognition, the Waterloo Rotary Club congratulates its outstanding students and schools for their accomplishments, commitment to excellence, and dedication to developing leaders of the future.  We are extremely proud of each participant and salute them for their achievements.

Guest speaker Jim Waterbury, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Allen Hospital got a standing ovation from the crowd for his musings about how the world has changed him since 1965 when he graduated from Waterloo West. In addition to listing some of the life-changing musical events in his life, Jim's remarks were well-designed for the high school students who were lucky to be there.  You can click here to read the speech.
