Seeking Unsung Hero Nominations


The Sunrise Rotary Club of Marco Island announced today it is accepting nominations for the quarterly “Unsung Hero” program. The Unsung Hero has gone above and beyond the call of duty. He or she will be a special person who has done extra special things for the Marco Island community without receiving pay or expecting praise or recognition.

Chairman Bill Morris stated, “Lots of islander do good work, and receive no recognition. We want to thank them.”

The nominee cannot be a Rotarian, but will be a person who in terms of the Rotary motto “Put service above self.” The nominee must either reside in Marco Island, Florida at least six months or be employed on Marco Island at least thirty hours per week or be nominated for service provided on Marco Island.

Nominees will be selected for community work that is not related to Rotary activities. The recipient will be someone who has not generally been honored and recognized by a public organization or testimonial, and generally be unknown to the majority of the community.

The Unsung Hero will be recognized by award of a plaque, a $100 donation by the Sunrise Rotary to a charity of the Unsung Hero’s choice and 20 polio vaccines to Rotary International.

Past recipients have included Jada Shigley, Carmen and Barbara Dasti, Craig Greusel, Rose Kraemer, Susan Kubat and Catalina Vallejo.
