The Rotary Club of Edina recently presented Diane Osborne with its 2023 Chrysanne Manoles Women In Leadership Award.
Osborne is the Nurse Manager of the Intensive Care Unit at Fairview Southdale Hospital. When she was hired in 2016, there was no formal program in place to honor organ donors or their families. In her first year, the Fairview Southdale ICU cared for two organ donors who went on to save three lives. By 2018, they had five donors who saved 12 lives. Many more details follow in "Read More"
The Rotary Club of Edina recently presented three scholarships to deserving students at Edina High School.
The Rotary Club of Edina presents $1,500 scholarships to graduating Edina seniors who exemplify the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” and have participated in Rotary programs such as Camp Enterprise, Camp RYLA, fall ethics seminar, Vocational Ethics Day, youth exchange, Edina Rotary Global Scholars or the Interact Club of Edina. This year’s scholarships were presented to Abid Hassan (pictured) and Elodie Jones. The Rotary Club of Edina also provides a $1,000 renewable scholarship to a graduating senior who is completing the Edina Rotary Global Scholars program. Rowan Ungerman (pictured) received that scholarship.
Twenty-six students are set to graduate from Edina High School as Rotary Global Scholars.
The Rotary Global Scholars program, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Edina and the Edina Education Fund, was designed to help students develop global competency skills, prepare for a global career, develop understanding of world issues and learn to apply academic content to solve social and global issues.
