EDINBURG – The Edinburg Rotary recently recognized the top eight student athletes from the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District during its luncheon meeting at the Echo Hotel in Edinburg.

“It’s a great opportunity. We are happy that the Rotarians include us and recognize our student athletes along with their busy agendas,” ECISD Athletics Director Rogelio Garza said.

The student recognition is part of the Edinburg Rotary’s Student of the Month Program, which highlights two senior students from each high school.

“The Rotarians support everything we do and not just by going to the games. They support us in our fundraisers and things that we need,” Garza said. “These are big community members and business leaders that support our programs throughout the year.”
