Mary Estes is Metro's 2019 Service Above Self honoree. Each year, on Martin Luther King Day, local Rotary Clubs host a luncheon which recognizes 8 exceptional high school seniors. The high school seniors gave a short speech on 'Service Above Self' in their lives. They also received a commemorative plaque and a $100 donation to an area non-profit of their choice.
From Metro Counselor Tara McLaughlin who attended the event, "We are so proud of Mary and all she does. Mary is earning her CNA certification while working at Hy Vee and Mercy Hospital and is accepted to Mt Mercy University where she will enroll in the fall."
