ROTARIAN OF THE YEAR

Each year, individual Rotary Clubs present their awards for Rotarian of the Year. These are extraordinary individuals that give of themselves, while exhibiting an unwavering commitment to Rotary's Four-Way Test. A nominee should be an outstanding club member who has made significant contributions to the mission and operation of your club, and to one or more avenues of Community or International Service.

Similarly, the District selects outstanding Rotary members that have answered the call, going above and beyond in support of goals, projects, and events. Below is a list of previous Rotarian of the Year award winners for Rotary District 5340.
