2019 Winners Announced.  Multiple schools represented.

Representatives from the Oak Forest Rotary Club presented 4-Way Test Awards to local students over the past few weeks. 

Rotary is an organization of business and professional men and women united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

The 4-Way Test is a primary foundation of Rotary.  It is used around the world in business, government, schools and homes as an effective ethics measuring stick.  The Test reads: Of the things we think, say and do: 1. Is it the Truth?  2. Is it fair to all concerned?  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

The Oak Forest Rotary Club’s 4-Way Test Award program began in 1987. The Club presents the Award every year to a boy and a girl from local elementary and middle schools.  The winners are recognized for demonstrating good behavior and exhibiting a strong moral character.  The medallion awards are presented to the students at their school’s awards assembly or graduation ceremony.

This year’s winners are: Sophia Vodnik and Charles Wyllie from Arbor Park Middle School; Leah Jimenez and Brennan Pinkston from Fierke Education Center; Selah Mabe and Mihir Tailor from Lee R. Foster School; Emma Schifferl and Nathan Towery from Hille Middle School; Brooke Vanderwall and David Trumbull from Kerkstra Elementary School; Samantha Walsh and Ryan Malloy from Scarlet Oak School; Morgan Nielsen and Tyler Stone from St. Damian School.

The Oak Forest Rotary Club meets weekly.  For meeting and membership information visit the Club’s website at
