(LaPorte, IN) - A local service club is under new leadership. Former mayor Leigh Morris is president of the Rotary Club of LaPorte. Morris says a major focus of the group right now is
promoting leadership in local youth. Morris said one of the ways the group is doing that is the creation of a new “Emerging Leaders Scholarship Fund.”
The Rotary Club has been involved in many service projects locally over the years, including turning Craven Pond into a nature preserve about 20-years ago. Close to 50 people are members of the local branch of the organization.
