FLUSHING – On Feb. 15, the Rotary Club of Flushing had an opportunity to visit the Robotics Lab at Kettering University. The Club was greeted by Bob Nichols from Kettering University, and Flushing High School Robotics Team coaches, Gina Hodgins and Trisha Ferris and several members of the Flushing High School Robotics Team.

Club members were able to see the lab area where the FHS Robotics Team builds their robot and learn first-hand what is involved in a robotics competition.

In addition to the tour of the Robotics Lab, the Rotary Club honored junior Luke Provost as the Rotary Student of the Month. Luke explained to the member of the Rotary Club the details of designing, building, programming, and driving the robot.

He also explained the details of the competitions. Luke was one of the drivers for the team last year, and this year he was on the design team. He is also hoping to be one of the drivers for this year, but that decision had not be made at the time of our tour.

In addition to Luke’s participation in the FHS Robotics team, he has earned the highest honor of Eagle Scout. His Eagle Scout project involved the restoration and addition to the playground at his church.

Luke is an excellent student with a 3.6 grade point average, which speaks well of his academic priorities. Luke is the son of Paul Dolan and Julie Provost-Dolan, who were able to join us at our Rotary meeting. – S.T.
