Several members from the Oak Forest Rotary Club presented 4-Way Test Awards to a number of local students over the past few weeks.  Thanks to Jason Riha, Sue Wolf, Dorothy Kennedy, Joe Pilch and Jim Pauly for your help.

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: Emma Koronkiewicz and Nicholas Jude from Arbor Park Middle School; Sarah Loeza and Robert Heidegger from Fierke Education Center; Amanda Hults and Evan Moss from Lee R. Foster School; Flynn Hartigan and Benjamin Nielsen from Hille Middle School; Tereza Progri and Ivan Corral from Kerkstra Elementary School; Valerie Krueger and Aidan Zeman from Scarlet Oak School; Peyton Nielsen and Brett Wiseman from St. Damian School.
