The Rotarian of the Year award is given to a Santee-Lakeside Rotarian that exemplifies the principles of the Rotary 4-Way Test, “Service Above Self”, and that Rotarians are
“People of Action”. This year we are proud to announce our Rotarian of the Year is Neferti Kinser.
 
Here are just a few reasons why Neferti earned this honor:
  • Even when she was on vacation she made it a point to attend meetings.
     
  • If for any reason she couldn’t make it to a meeting she would always check in with someone and let them know how she would miss being with us.
     
  • She could be found at almost every volunteer opportunity.
     
  • She helped interview students for our club’s education programs.
     
  • She also helped a lot with projects done at home, from writing cards, to collecting goods, to knitting hats.
     
  • While Neferti is quiet, she has a heart of gold and truly embodies “Service Above Self”.
