Howard Community College Dedicates Atrium in Honor of Rotary Clubs of Howard County
Howard Community College recently recognized the Rotary Clubs of Howard County for their contributions to the college’s foundation by dedicating the Health Sciences Building’s central atrium in their honor. Members from several of the seven county clubs and Rotary Assistant Governor Charlie McCabe attended a ceremony late last month when the new lettering was unveiled for the first time.
“It is truly an honor for the Rotary Clubs of Howard County to partner with Howard Community College in supporting the education of area residents,” said Ken Solow, district governor-elect of Rotary District 7620. “Members from every county club supported this effort, knowing that the college is building the workforce of the future and contributing to the local economy. In fact, we hope Rotarians around the District will model this kind of cooperation between clubs in supporting our many service projects around the State of Maryland in the future.”
Rotary International is a service organization that gives back to local communities and around the world. While there are seven clubs within Howard County, each is unique, named for the meeting location or meeting time. The chapters are: Clarksville, Columbia, Columbia Town Center, Columbia Patuxent, Elkridge, Ellicott City, and Ellicott City Sunrise.
“Howard Community College is proud of its longstanding partnership with the Rotary Clubs of Howard County,” said Dr. Kate Hetherington, president of Howard Community College. “Our employees are members, our students are beneficiaries of their scholarships, and now the newly named Rotary Clubs of Howard County Atrium honors this legacy.”
