The Rotary Club of Shepherdstown Rotary has donated $500 to the Shepherd University Financial Planning Club.

The Financial Planning Club is composed of undergraduate students enrolled in Shepherd University's Financial Planning Program.

The Rotary funds will be used to help a team of those students compete in a national student financial planning competition that will be held in Orlando in September.

This competition is sponsored each fall by the US Financial Planning Association.

Last fall, a team of Shepherd students made it all the way to the competition's final round. This was seen as an achievement because Shepherd's Financial Planning program was new at the time, just beginning its first full academic year.

The Rotary Club made its donation at its July 30 weekly breakfast meeting at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown.
