The Venice Suncoast Rotary and Venice Nokomis Rotary combined their efforts to obtain a Rotary Foundation District 6960 Grant to sponsor improvements to the Student Leadership Academy.
The school now has a sports court complex that consists of basketball, volleyball and pickleball courts and a general purpose area where the school parking lot was once located. Between the Rotary Grant and other private donations by the Dr. Gary & Fran Hughes Foundation, over $50,000 was raised for the improvements. On Monday, October 18th, the complex was dedicated to the SLA with a ceremony attended by members of both Clubs and officers of Rotary District 6960.
