Congratulations to soon-to-be UTSA graduate Monica Meeker on her April 29th global grant approval from The Rotary Foundation for post-graduate studies in solid waste management at National Chengchi University in Taipei, Taiwan.  A big note of appreciation for Jane Burton (Fair Oaks Ranch RC) for leading the district program that annually identifies our candidates and Jim Montgomery (San Antonio at the Dominion RC) for sponsoring her.
The $30,000 scholarship will be used for academic fees, airfare, living expenses, etc.  Taiwan is a world leader in waste management and the university faculty are among the best in the business.  Meeker interned with the City of San Antonio Waste Management Division and intends to return to Texas with better ways to care for our environment.
