Jim Sharrock and Metro Rotary win awards
Congratulations to Jim Sharrock, Columbia Area Career Center Adult Programs Supervisor, for his role as past president of the Columbia Metro Rotary Club. Under Jim's leadership Metro Rotary earned The Presidential Citation and the Changemaker Awards presented at the Rotary District 6080 conference. The honor of receiving both awards went to only three clubs in the district. The Changemaker Award recognizes Rotary clubs that make an impact through their Avenues of Service. The Presidential Citation Award is given to Rotary clubs that meet goals related to membership, recruiting, fundraising, and community service projects. Specific goals include maintaining at least 85 percent of membership, recruiting Rotary International and Rotary Foundation program alumni, and increasing diversity by adding female members.
