   Maria Puff                           Dracco Hoang
 
Each month of the school year, the Lakeville Rotary Club recognizes students of the senior class who demonstrate “Service Above Self”. 
 
For the month of March Lakeville North High School has chosen Maria Puff as the March Student of the Month. Maria’s GPA puts her in the top one percent of the senior class. She is a National Merit Commended Scholar and a recipient of the Harvard Book Award from Lakeville North. Maria has played piccolo in the Lakeville north Marching Band for all four years of high school, serving as a drum major her senior year. She also plays the violin, and participated in the Minnesota Youth Symphonies for four years. In past years, she was a member of the Lakeville north Cross Country, Nordic Ski, and Track and Field teams.
 
Maria is a member of All Saints Catholic Church, where she assists as a lead alter server at Mass, and has volunteered at Feed My Starving children. She recently participated as a small group leader in a Kindness Retreat at Oak Hills Elementary. Maria will attend the university of Minnesota next year, majoring in biomedical engineering.
 
Maria’s parents are John Puff and Pamela Orr and her Dean is Cary Zahn.
 
For the month of March Dracco Hoang has been chosen for the Rotary Student of the Month from Lakeville South High School.
 
Dracco is a senior at Lakeville South High School who has had a very unique path through his four years. When Dracco first started in high school, he was in a highly supported special education program. He worked his way out of special education and into two programs: Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) and the STEM Academy.  Dracco is currently working on his STEM capstone project with Dr. Hansen at the VA Hospital in Minneapolis. Through the Prosthetics Research Department, Dracco is researching a new brace design for people with scoliosis. Dracco’s individual determination and commitment to helping others makes him an obvious choice for Lakeville South’s Rotary Student of the Month. 
 
Dracco’s Parents – Charlie and Karen Hoang and his Dean is Dana Kelly.

News From Rotary International
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
