Rotary Honors Shelby Shipman

On Thursday, the Haleyville Rotary Club had a very special guest, Shelby Shipman. Shelby, an 8th grader at the Haleyville Middle School was recognized as the top salesperson for tickets to the Rotary BBQ dinner held last fall. This is the third year in a row Shelby has won that top honor. As a special treat, she and her parents, Scott and Lisa Shipman were picked up at the school and brought to the lunchtime Rotary meeting in a stretch limo driven by the Rotary President, Todd Barton.

The money made by the Rotary Club at the dinner was distributed with checks for $1,250 each to the principals Holly Sutherland, HHS, Bo Wilcoxson, HMS and Wayne Frazier, HES.

The Haleyville Rotary Club meets each Thursday at noon in the board room of the Lakeland Community Hospital.
