Rotary Heroes
Each year, clubs are offered the opportunity to choose a "Rotary Hero."  Rotary Heroes are Rotarians chosen by their fellow club members to be recognized for their above-and-beyond willingness to give of their time and talents.  These individuals make their communities and their clubs better.  The dictionary defines a hero as a person who, in the opinion of others, has special achievements, abilities, or personal qualities and is regarded as a role model.  
 
In the Rotary world, these heroes exhibit "Service Above Self."
 
The selected Hero is highlighted at the Rotary District Conference each spring. Past recipients include:
