Pictured here are Century High School students receiving their classroom calculators. Rotary community service chair Donna Bosak said club members wanted to do something for the high schools since elementary schools are the beneficiaries of many school supply drives each September. Rotary members raised $1,500 and the district foundation matched the money with a grant. Each of the high schools received 8 calculators and Miller received two. Hillsboro Rotary also funds several scholarships each spring for local graduates seeking  two-year technical degrees.
