An article on our 2020 ERC AVID scholarships has been published in the October 2020 edition of the Elm Grove News - Independent. Click here to access the publication. The story is on p. 6.
 
Earlier this summer the Elmbrook Rotary Club (ERC) announced the  2020 recipients for its AVID Scholarships. These scholarships were awarded in an online setting and presented by Past President Mike Schmeling.
 
For the past several years, ERC has limited its scholarships to participants in the AVID program in the Elmbrook School District. Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a school-wide approach to curriculum and rigor adopted by more than 4,000 schools in 45 states and 15 countries over 28 years. It is a research-based program that equips students to meet the challenges of rigorous coursework in high school and college. Also, AVID is closing the opportunity gap in college graduation rates among diverse and underrepresented demographic groups.
