The Rotary Club of Marco Island recently announced its final 2012 Spirit of Marco Island Award winner, Jane Watt. Jane Watt was advised of her selection last week during a fundraising event for the Marco Island Academy. Members of the Rotary Club of Marco Island made the surprise presentation in front of a group of nearly forty persons recognizing Jane Watt for leading the effort to establish the first high school on Marco Island, the Marco Island Academy. Jane was instrumental in creating the Marco Island Discovery Center in 2009, an organization set up to raise funds for the school and to provide the community with information on the goals of this new venture. Jane Watt is currently the Chairwoman of the seven-member Board of Directors of the Marco Island Academy.

Watt, along with previously announced winners Mac Chaudhry, Dennis & Joan Pidherny, Jani Subczynski, and Craig & Bonnie Woodward, will all be formally presented with their 2012 Spirit of Marco Island Award at a Gala Awards Dinner and Silent Auction to be held on Friday April 13, 2012 at the San Marco Catholic Church Parish Hall. Lee Rubenstein, also a 2012 Spirit award recipient, will receive his formal award at an upcoming Rotary luncheon.

The proceeds from the event and silent auction are used to support local charities and scholarships. For more information and tickets for this event you may contact Al Diaz at 438-5285 or by email at royalmarcoway@marcocable.com
