  • At the regular monthly meeting, Quota International of Bath awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Alexa Gleason of Bath.  
    A graduate of Haverling Central School, Alexa attended Monroe Community College in Rochester where she earned an A.S. degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences in 2012.  She currently attends State University of New York at Cortland to pursue her undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Science. Alexa plans to attend graduate school upon completion at Cortland with a goal to become a Speech Pathologist and focus her career on working with children with disabilities.  Alexa expressed her appreciation on receiving the scholarship and said “her desire comes from working as an aide for the GST BOCES summer school program and a substitute teacher.”  
    Alexa is active with the Cortland Dance Company, Speech Club and Tau Sigma, Cortland's National Honor Society. She is the daughter of Amey and Jim Rusak of Bath, and Raymond Gleason of Mifflinburg, PA.
    Judy Hunter, Quota president, presented the award to Alexa, assisted by committee members, Marlea Sherwood and Mary Kay Quiggle.  
    Quotarians are known especially for their service to deaf, hard of hearing, and speech impaired individuals.
