On Wednesday, September 21, 2016 Kalani Otubuah, a 5th grade student at Morgan Kincaid Preparatory School of Integrated Studies, was presented with the Rotary Club’s S.T.A.R. award and a gift card at their luncheon. The student is also asked what they want to be when they grow up; Kalani answered that he wants to be a doctor.
Mr. Jonathan Wilson, Kalani’s teacher, wrote the following introduction that was read at the Rotary Club’s meeting:
"Kalani is a model student and has shown improvement in math and ELA this year. Kalani has a great attitude and is very respectful, responsible, and helpful. Kalani has perfect attendance so far. Kalani is very deserving of this award."
