The Rotary Club of Lincoln, established in 1923, yearly honors a
member for exceptional service that exemplifies the mission of the
local chapter of the worldwide organization.
Green-Morrow, currently the club's director of international
service, is a committed and tireless member of the organization,
according to Deb Ackerman, Rotary president. "Kristen is always one
to lend a hand when needed," Ackerman said. "She is the kind of
person that never says no."
The prestige of this award is not lost on Green-Morrow. "I am
honored and humbled to receive this award," she said. "The club has
so many good, compassionate people committed to making the world a
better place to live."
She said that the award also carries a renewed commitment to
strive even harder to continue her efforts in the local Rotary.
Alluding to past Rotarian and icon of community service Bob Graue,
who recently passed, the award is even more special to Green-Morrow.
"The first Rotarian of the Year was Bob Graue," she said. "He was an
amazing man in this community, and I will continue to aspire to try
and be like him. If I can do half of what Bob did, I will consider
it a great achievement."
