The U.S. Department of Education announced this year it has renewed the Second Chance Pell initiative through 2020. The initiative provides need-based Pell Grants to people in prisons through partnerships with 65 colleges, including three in Oklahoma.

 

“It’s a great deal with all the emphasis on criminal justice reform. It helps folks reintegrate into society,” said Ron Ramming, president of Connors State College in Warner. “We’ve had great success with it.”  Ron will be our special speaker this week and will be telling about this important program that is actually changing lives.

 

The May 28 meeting is a Bixby Rotary business meeting and is not intended for guest or prospective members. More info will be posted here next week.

    MSNI workday is Saturday, Oct 13

    Plan now for our next service session at the Medical Supplies Network warehouse that will be held Saturday Oct 13 from 8 am until noon. We will be joined by Bixby Interact students so this will be a very productive morning.

     

    We will inventory donated medical goods and repack them for shipment to Rotary Clubs all over the world.

     

    Rotary clubs in other countries will then deliver the supplies to needy hospitals and clinics. This is not labor intensive work and will be a great project for spouses and family members.
