The Rotary Club of Kerrville-Morning (Morning Rotary) recently awarded $2,000 to the Christian Women’s Job Corps of Kerr County (CWJC) to fund computer upgrades. Morning Rotarian and Club Treasurer, Waverly Jones, initiated a successful district grant request for $1,000 which was matched by Morning Rotary.
“Waverly’s effort to support CWJC further demonstrates her commitment to helping others. She identified a need, wrote a grant to assist in meeting that need, and stayed engaged to help administer the grant. She definitely exemplifies ‘Service Above Self,’” said Ray Buck, Morning Rotary President.
“Technology is of the utmost importance to the CWJC program.  Having laptop computers that the ladies can check out and take home overnight will allow them to work independently on resume writing, online job applications and Zoom interviews. Thank you, Morning Rotary Club for helping to make this additional resource available to the CWJC ladies,” said Kellie Early, CWJC Board Director.
“We at CWJC greatly appreciate this grant from the Morning Rotary for our computer updates and tech support.  This will aid our interns in practicing their skills and applying for jobs on-line.  The success of our Interns to gain employment depends on their computer knowledge.  The Morning Rotary has greatly aided in making this possible,” said Ann Buck, CWJC Executive Director.
