Alana Just Congratulations to Liberty High junior Alana Just, who received the Rotary Scholarship to travel to Xicotepec, Mexico, to complete a week of service. Alana is an active member of Liberty’s IN SHOC program who truly lives the motto “Service Above Self.”

The Xicotepec Project is a partnership between Rotary District 6000 in Iowa and the local Rotary Club in Xicotepec. Together for a week each year, the team works to support and execute projects that address urgent needs in Xicotepec. This week of work occurs during Spring Break. Trip members include Rotarians and their families, high-school students involved in Interact, and University of Iowa service-learning students and faculty from the colleges of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Liberal Arts, and others. These trips have occurred annually since 2002.
