Lesley Smith Honored with Paul Harris Award

    Lesley Smith, the secretary of the Greenville Rotary Club, was recently awarded one of the highest honors that can be bestowed on a Rotarian - the Paul Harris Fellow.

    Ms. Smith is a licensed real estate salesperson with Coldwell Banker Prime Properties in Greenville.  She is a graduate of the State University of NY at Geneseo and resides in South Westerlo with her husband, Jerry. She is also an active member of the Community Partners of Greenville.

    Paul Harris was the founder of Rotary International in 1905.  The award that bears his name is given after a $1,000 donation is made to the Rotary Foundation by an individual, or in the name of that individual.  It is given “in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among the peoples of the world. “

    The Greenville Rotary Club chose to honor Lesley Smith because of her hard work and support of the club and its mission of “Service Above Self.” She was given the award on August 17, 2023.
