Rotary Club of Franklin Vocational Service


 Vocational service is a very vital part of the Rotary Club of Franklin’s efforts. Projects included in vocational service for 2012-13 included: 1. The Carpenter Scholarship offering up to $1500 in scholarship funds to one or more Macon County nursing students enrolled in their second year of study at WCU and / or SCC, 2. The Shadow Program emphasizing bringing young people into Rotarians’ places of business, and 3. The Rotary Club of Franklin  Honoring at least two Professionals who have contributed significantly in both their professional and personal life in our community. Other Vocational Service Projects include Read2Me as well as a new district wide project-Operation Renewal. The subject of ethics in a series of club programs were presented during the month of October 2012 and should be an important part of every vocation.
