Sunrise Rotary partners with Howard schools' ARL

The Applications and Research Laboratory of the Howard County Public School System has partnered with the Sunrise Rotary Club of Ellicott City, the system announced last week.

Through the partnership, high school students in the ARL’s Career Academies will have access to an expanded range of mentoring, tutoring and technical services provided by Rotary members.

ARL Principal Edmund Evans has pledged to host at least one Sunrise meeting a year, which will allow students and staff to share information about ARL programs and accomplishments, according to a release from the school system. The ARL also will give the rotary an end-of-year briefing on the school’s performance and assessing its needs.

The career academies allow county students to study visual communication, architecture, construction, automotive technology, health sciences, biotechnology, EMT, nursing, finance, information technology, emergency management and other fields.

According to the school system’s  release, Sunrise Rotary will “facilitate the participation of its sister organizations in the ‘Howard 7’ “ — the seven Rotary clubs in the county — Clarksville, Columbia, Columbia Patuxent, Columbia Town Center, Elkridge, Ellicott City and Sunrise.

The Howard 7 currently supports county schools in several ways, including sponsoring Interact Clubs at several high schools, organizing Rotary Youth Leadership Award training and providing dictionaries to all county third-grade students.
