Twenty-three scholar athletes from Lewis-Palmer High School were
honored at the Annual Rotary Champions Banquet May 2 at the
Colorado Springs World Arena.
The Rotary Champions program is an annual event presented by the
Rotary Clubs of the Pikes Peak Region and sponsored by KRDOTV NEWS
13 and Pepsi Cola.
This year's banquet marks the 23rd consecutive year the Rotary
Champions Foundation has worked to assemble the finest
scholar/athletes in the Pikes Peak Region.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate, recognize and reward
those young men and women who exemplify the spirit of champions -
excellence on the playing field, excellence in the classroom and
excellence in the community.
