The William H. Logan Jr. Legacy Service Award recognizes a pioneer in the community who is making significant contributions to Evanston through their time, action, talents and dedication. Honorees are seen as a role models of civic engagement who have established a history of distinguished service. 
The award was established in 2020 by the Rotary Club of Evanston and was named for William "Bill" Logan, Evanston's former Chief of Police, who has made significant contributions to the city over the course of his life.  Chief Logan was honored as the first recipient of the award.
A longtime resident of Evanston, Chief Logan has been an active civic leader, co-founding numerous organizations -- including the Chessmen Club of the North Shore, Inc., the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE), and the Fellowship of African American Men (FAAM). He also established volunteer organizations, such as Mothers Against Gangs. 
He has been a member of the Rotary Club of Evanston for more than three decades, having served on its Board of Directors. He has also served on the boards of the Evanston Community Foundation; Evanston Parks, Recreation and Community Services; and the Levy Center Foundation.
