I wasn't aware of these student grants/gifts which can make such a difference in their lives. I hope people sign-up in droves to the 10/31 Spirit Run to help raise funds for thesee scholarships. People can go to the Pleasanton's Rotary Club website to learn more about this service organization and the great work it does as I just did: Web Link
