Red Rock Rotarian Scott Florence receives Rotary International Service Above Self Award
Scott Florence, Utah Rotary’s Membership Chair, has received RI’s highest honor: the Service Above Self Award. Our district’s increase in membership this year is largely due to Scott’s and his committee’s efforts. Scott organizes his committee in a way that involves and enthuses all members, with great outreach to clubs to carry the message of a creating a welcoming, flexible, innovative atmosphere – adapting to changing times.
His fellow Red Rock Rotarians say about Scott:
- Whatever the service project might be, Scott is instrumental in the planning and implementation.
- Scott is not just the first one to volunteer, he volunteers when finding volunteers is difficult.
- I don’t know how he finds the time to help so many in his community.
- Scott can speak about Rotary off-the-cuff, with great passion, knowledge and insight. He is just a great communicator.
- Scott has personally sponsored 10 new members. He is an advocate the good Rotary does in his community and the world.
Scott’s innovative approaches to growing Rotary have been recognized on the Rotary Zone level. He will be serving as a Big West Membership Coordinator next year.
