The Rotary Club of La Jolla presented its 2019 Vocational Services Award to Scott Barton, principal of The Preuss School. The award recognizes non-Rotarians who, through their vocation, exemplify the values of Rotary and have made a positive impact in the community. Club president Kevin Quinn presented the award to Barton on Jan. 29 during the club’s regular lunch meeting at La Valencia Hotel.

Barton is a founding faculty member of The Preuss School and became principal in 2008. The unique charter school, located on the UC San Diego campus, helps low-income students become the first in their families to attend college. Preuss has been recognized byNewsweek magazine as the top transformative high school in the nation.

“The Rotary theme this year is ‘Be the Inspiration,’” said Quinn. “Scott’s leadership provides these students with an opportunity for the type of education and financial support that leads to a brighter future. That’s inspiring.”
