2019 Volunteer of the Year Mark McNay

The annual Springfield Southeast Rotary Club's Volunteer of the Year Award is our Club’s highest honor.  It  recognizes community service rendered outside Rotary activities.  Mark McNay received the 2019 award at our annual recognition banquet on June 20.

Those of us who serve or seek to recruit others to serve often speak of giving  one’s time, talent, or treasure.  Frequently, recognition is offered to those who serve by giving their treasure.  Sometimes, recognition is given to those whose service takes the form of giving the precious gift of their time. And, somewhat less frequently, we hear a “Thank you” offered to one whose service represents the use of a special skill or talent.


Nominations for this annual award are submitted by our club members and community organizations, with the final selection being made by the Rotary volunteer committee.  Tammy Mast is the committee chair and presented the award.
