Rotarian awarded top honour
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.
