Horizon Broadcasting Group has generously given hours of airtime to support our annual Rotary on the Radio event where local Rotarians take over the radio station for the day to raise money for the Crook County Rotary Scholarship fund. The Rotarians are the DJs and are sure to entertain! There will be an auction of generously donated items with bidding available on-site, on-air and on facebook. (Check back later to see a list of the auction items that we will add to this web page.)
Monday, April 2, 2018 – 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The following letters received from former scholarship recipients are testaments to the appreciation shared among the youth of Crook County for these scholarships that help them achieve their dreams.
“I was graciously gifted a scholarship from the Crook County Rotary Club last school year. This award has helped me so much throughout the year. I was able to purchase all the class material and text books for my classes without any out of pocket expenses. Having one less expense to worry about has made attending a new school a lot less stressful. Thank you so much to everyone at the Crook County Rotary Club this award has been such a big help, I appreciate it so much.”
“I used the amazing scholarship from the Rotary Club to pay for a large portion of my Winter term including various classes, required course related books, and supplies for these classes. The feeling of having those things paid for before they were even accounted for is something to not take for granted. The Rotary Club of Crook County’s scholarship gave me the opportunity to be a student first versus having to constantly worry about the cost of college.
It adds up quickly and I am forever grateful to everyone from this organization who granted me with this generous gift. I promise, I am working my hardest to pay it forward and not waste it! .”
Your donations are providing more than scholarship funding; you’re supporting a dream, an education, a future. The lives you’re impacting with your donation today will be good stewards of the gifts you’re bestowing upon them for years to come. Join your neighbors and friends by paying it forward today, showing your belief in the potential of our high school students through your participation in Rotary on the Radio.
