Yesterday our Rotary District Governor Jim Squire presented Sandy Davis with a Paul Harris Fellow +8. Sandy is the mother of President Kim Walden. Kim wanted to recognize her mother with the highest honor a Rotarian can bestow on a non-Rotarian. You can recognize someone special in your life and it helps the Foundation!
The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.
Rotary established the recognition in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships. The number of Paul Harris Fellows reached the 1 million mark in 2006.
