The Rotary Club of Marco Island Sunrise recently presented its Unsung Hero Award for First Quarter, 2015 to Jada Shigley. Jada is recognized for her service to the Marco Island community and placing “service above self” consistent with Rotary’s aspirations.
Jada works full-time at the Marco Island Marriott but unselfishly gives her time to the American Cancer Society, Chamber of Commerce and Golisano Children’s Hospital. In the words of Debra Shanahan, the Rotary membernominating Shigley “Jada never says no, always goes above and beyond and never looks for personal recognition. She is terrific!” As the Sunrise Rotary’s Unsung Hero, Jada was awarded a plaque commemorating the recognition. In addition, the Club will donate $100 to the American Cancer Society as a charity chosen by Jada, and 20 polio vaccines as part of Rotary International’s effort to eradicate polio.
The Unsung Hero award recognizes a member of theMarco Island community who unselfishly help others, and who has not generally been recognized for such service. The recipient is not a member of Rotary, but either works, lives or provides their service on Marco Island.
