ST An­drews Ro­tary Club is now home to 14 peo­ple who have been awarded the Paul Har­ris Fel­low­ship fol­low­ing this month’s in­duc­tion of Ro­tar­ian Wal­ter Hill.

The fel­low­ship is one of the high­est awards for ser­vice in Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional.

It takes the name of the man who founded Ro­tary, in Chicago, in 1906 and is awarded un­der the aus­pices of the Ro­tary Foun­da­tion of Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional.

The ci­ta­tion states that the Paul Har­ris Fel­low­ship is given “in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of tan­gi­ble and sig­nif­i­cant as­sis­tance for the fur­ther­ance of bet­ter un­der­stand­ing and friendly re­la­tions among peo­ples of the world”.

Dur­ing his 30 years in Ro­tary, Mr Hill has chaired four Ro­tary com­mit­tees, in­clud­ing both foun­da­tion and in­ter­na­tional.

In his cur­rent role as con­vener of the ways and means com­mit­tee, he has led a team of com­mit­ted peo­ple who have raised £60,000 in the past five years.
