The Regional Service Award for a Polio-Free World
The Regional Service Award for a Polio-Free World was established by the Trustees of the Rotary Foundation in order to recognize outstanding work in the field of the eradication of Polio. To be considered for the award, a Rotarian must have active personal service in the effort to eradicate polio. Outstanding service in the field of advocacy and fundraising efforts that supports Rotary’s PolioPlus program may also be considered.
In the 2021-2022 Rotary year, Past District Governor John Kramb was selected to receive the Regional Service Award for a Polio-Free World. PDG John has been on several NID trips to India, hosts multiple events per year to raise funds toward the eradication of Polio and currently serves as the End Polio Now Coordinator for Region 39W. Congratulations John!

Kathleen has had many accomplishments over the years with no expectation of recognition. She truly embodies “Service Above Self”. Congratulations Kathleen!
