The Sierra Madre Civic Club proudly presented its annual Education Awards to six local high school seniors at its May 8, 2014 meeting. 
Education Awards are given to graduating seniors chosen for academic excellence, school activity involvement, and community service. 
The honorees are: Isaac Garcia, who is graduating from Duarte High School and will be attending Cal State LA; Emma Martinez, who 
is graduating from LaSalle High School and will be attending the University of Portland; Thomas Bent, who is also graduating from 
LaSalle High School and will be attending UC Santa Cruz; Savannah Woods, who is graduating from Pasadena High school and will be 
attending UC Davis; Michael Carter, who is graduating from Maranatha High School and will be attending Johns Hopkins University; 
and Aliya Crochetiere, who is graduating from Pasadena Polytechnic High School and will be attending UC Berkeley. 

Civic Club was able to award a total of $4,500 among these worthy students. Members of the Civic Club Education Awards committee, 
chaired by Ellen O’Leary and Gwen Robertson, presented the awards individually to each of the recipients stating that the award 
represented “for all that you have and will achieve.” Congratulations to these fine young students! 

The Sierra Madre Civic Club is comprised of about 100 local and area women who come together to promote unity and good fellowship, 
and to strive toward civic, philanthropic, and youth welfare advancement. During the year, Civic Club raises monies which, in late 
Spring of each year, are donated to local philanthropic causes and are also awarded in the form of grants to local exceptional high 
school seniors. 


This year these young people told 
Rotary after their return from 
Lake Arrowhead weekend, this 
was a life changing 

experience. They had no idea 
how quickly they made new 

lasting relationships, created 
trust and learned to be a team 

in 2 days. They also stated the 
food was great. Rotary of 

Sierra Madre sends High School 
Juniors and 8th graders 

to leadership camp every year 
through an application 

and selective process. To learn

THE REEL DEAL: by Ben Show 
For me, this movie lookedvery interesting for two reasons:
Bryan Singer was back as the 
director and the entire X-Men 
team was being reassembled.
This movie had a lot it needed to 
do, most importantly, reset theX-Men timeline after the events 
of ‘The Last Stand’, and it did 
that very successfully. 

When the X-Men are faced 
with the threat of Sentinels, giant 
robotic beings that targetmutants and parents of potential 
mutants, they must figureout a way to stop them withoutphysically fighting them. Theirsolution: have Kitty Pryde (Ellen 
Page) send Wolverine (Hugh

Jackman) back in time to the 70s, when the Sentinel programwas first created by Dr. Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage), and stopthem from ever being made. 

While the plot may seem confusing and convoluted, themovie makes sure you understand what it going on before itbegins the amazing action sequences. This movie does so manygood things for the X-Men series, like setting up events that maytake place in later movies and introduces the villain for the nextfilm, X-Men: Apocalypse. This is by far the best film in the series 
so far and should be seen by both fans and newcomers.
