Congratulations goes out to Inga, our exchange student....a Committee of the Faculty of Logan High School has selected her as a honorary member for induction into the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools!  The National Honor Society is sponsored by the National Associate of Secondary School Principals in order to give recognition to outstanding high school students. Selection to the National Honor Society is one of the highest academic honors that a high school can bestow on any student, and means that the faculty feels she has placed importance on a well-rounded education, developing character and scholarship, and providing leadership and service.
Congratulations, on this honor Inga!
The Brain Game Board of Directors has exciting news!  They are launching an eBook version of The Brain Game at our Rotary International Booth in Atlanta!  They are also very close to having Amazon publish, store and distribute the hard hardcover English version and BuildFire to host the mobile app.  Kuddos to all involved in creating these exciting changes to The Brain Game.
The Brain Game is a book enhancing children's brain development, written and recommended by early childhood professionals. This resource was developed through the leadership of the Rotary Club of La Crosse and as part of this Rotary project given to parents of newborns at both local hospitals.  The books are also available in Spanish.
Reminder if you are traveling and visiting other Rotary Clubs....please make sure and pick up a banner and Brain Game Book to present. Great way to promote the Brain Game Project.
If you have any questions on the Brain Game Project, you can contact Jeanne Meyer, Administrator at 608-304-2971 or visit their web site.
