The Rotary Club of Potsdam Rotary Club was founded more than 90 years ago on the basis of community service by business leaders in many professions. A monthly award for BOCES students, named the Rev. William and Crystal Cuthbert Vocational Excellence Award, after its founder, has received several district awards. The club presents the monthly award to Seaway Tech students in one of 15 programs. This event will raise money for the end-of -the-year awards, one to a student in each program.
