Last month for Youth Services Month we highlight Fionnuir Ni Chochlain.  Anthony Moyer wrote a really nice article about Finn sharing her accomplishments.  I thought it would be appropriate to run the article again being that Finn was our guest at last week's meeting. Tony's article touched on many of the topics Finn shared about herself at our meeting.  She is an incredibly bright, talented, kind and motivated young person.  Listening to her talk about her passions and her future made me feel good about the next generation of leaders.  If you were not able to catch her talk please take a bit of time this week and watch.  You will walk away feeling uplifted and happy to know that this Interact Student and Emmaus Rotary Scholarship Recipient is sure to do great things in the world.  She is a "Person of Action" and she absolutely embodies the "Be The Good In the World" motto.
