Thanks to Sue Wolf, Bill Zerinskas and Joe Pilch for joining me to present 4-Way Test Awards to our local elementary and middle school winners over the past few weeks. 
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: Nikki Gedrimas and Guiseppi Smith from Arbor Park Middle School; Justina Nieves and Nathan Barranca from Fierke Education Center; Emma Fudala and Parker Griffin from Lee R. Foster School; Megan Schoubye and Robert Sidler-Ortiz from Hille Middle School; Tehya Semens and JeSean Shannon from Kerkstra Elementary School; Donna Beltran and Noah Blakemore from Scarlet Oak School; Catherine Petit and Matthew Haro from St. Damian School.
