Hunter Jones teaches AP biology at Tanque Verde High School and wanted new books to ignite his students excitement about the big ideas in modern biology. The Rincon Rotary stepped in and procured 15 copies each of Violinists Thumb and Your Inner Fish from local bookseller Mostly Books.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary LOCAL program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary LOCAL can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
To find out more about Rotary LOCAL and how it may be able to help you, go to rotarylocal.org. Primary support for Rotary LOCAL comes from the Rincon Rotary's annual fundraiser, The Tucson Taste of Chocolate.
