The Smithfield Rotary Club in collaboration with the Isle of Wight County Public Schools (IWCS) has established this “School to Work” initiative. Smithfield Rotary awards eight $500 honorariums to seniors that are graduating from one of the IWCS Career Academies with employment in their training area. The Honorariums are presented to the selected seniors at the divisions Signing Day where employers commit to hiring graduating seniors. Honorariums are designed to offset the costs associated with entering employment related to tools, clothing/uniform, or transportation.
