Fremont Rotary/STRIVE Program
STRIVE (Students Taking Renewed Interest in the
Value of Education) is a program sponsored by the Rotary
Club of Fremont and implemented in conjunction with
Ross High School staff. Rotarians work with select seniors
who want to improve their school performance and set
goals for the future. These students receive mentoring
from Rotarians, and meet monthly at Ross High School
with Rotarians, who arrange programs on a variety of
topics related to school success and career planning. At
the January STRIVE meeting, students utilized computers
to access Career Exploration software provided by Terra
Community College. At left: Student Carl Spears works
with his mentor, Rotarian Ralph Oxley, to explore potential
careers and complete his college applications.
