The Rotary 4 Way Test: It applies in our every day life

On Friday, January 23rd students from all three high schools were recognized for exemplifying the tenets of the Rotary Club Four Way Test. Fairfield High School had the honor of  recognizing six students: Brandisha Wynne, Molly Eichenberger, Destiny Akin, Erika Chuatakoon, Jerrick Hall, and August Johnson. These students have made an impact in their world and to many people around them.


The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Keynote speaker, William Wesley, had some very inspiring words for all to hear. "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others." It emphasized the importance of role models for our youth. We as the adults need to be the role models for what we want to see in our youth of today. We also need to encourage the youth that are making the sometimes difficult choices to do the right thing. Each day reflect on your choices and see if they stand up to the Four Way Test. The more each and every one of us models the expectations of what it means to be a good citizen the more examples our students have to emulate. 

The Great Kindness Challenge, January 26th-30th, couldn't have come at a better time. Let's keep paying it forward day in and day out. 

Our ONE goal: To graduate every Fairfield High Student and to ensure that they leave FHS college and career ready!!! Inspire, Engage, Excite, Lead, Foster, Create, Empower!!

Many more great things are in store for Fairfield High!

Continue to be innovative, creative, and a model of excellence!
