Thursday March 3rd - Member Craft Talks. We welcome our favorite speaker event when 2 of our own Rotarians, who often turn out to be a pretty daring and adventurous crew, share their stories. We will be privileged to hear life experiences of two of our younger members -- Elizabeth Cavner and Roberto Motoshige.

Elizabeth starts with the fact that she was born and raised in Merced, went on to study Accounting and Health Science at UC Santa Barbara, and moved to Irvine 13 years ago, where she established her own business as a Fitness and Nutrition Trainer. She goes on to embellish a great personal history.

Roberto tells us of being a native Los Angeleno, growing up in Japan, Mexico, and the United States, attending Stanford University, and coming to Orange County to expand activity in the field of investment management. He will also tell us why he used to travel so much but has now become a home body.

Come out and be surprised by the tales these members can spin about their lives and ours!

The Newport-Irvine Rotary Club awarded three $1,000 scholarships to meritorious students that graduated from Olive Crest. Brenetta Wallace, Erika Browell, and Thalia Gomez-Garcia were selected among various applicants by a committee of Rotarians that evaluated their applications and selected the awardees. All of the applicants wrote compelling essays about themselves and how the $1,000 scholarship would impact their lives.

Erika Browel is currently at Fullerton College studying Music (vocal) and Psychology.  Brenetta Wallace is currently at California State University at Fullerton where she is pursuing a master’s degree in Social Work. Thalia Gomez Garcia is at Santa Ana College studying English and will transfer to UCI this summer, 2014.

Their scholarships, which are for expenses associated with attending college or trade school, were awarded at a Rotary meeting on 12 June, 2014. In addition to the three awardees, Olive Crest was represented by Ami Rowland, Residential Director and Joey Collinsworth, manager transitional housing programs and alumni services.
