Every year, the Rotary Club of China Lake Rotarian of the Year committee meets to identify and honor a member of the Rotary Club of China Lake who exemplifies the Rotary Motto of Service Above Self.  A nominee must demonstrate a commitment to club and community service and participation in club activities.  The worthy recipient selected is presented with an Everett A. Long Rotarian of the Year Award.
 
This year the selection committee was pleased and honored to present the Everett A. Long Rotarian of the Year Award to Betty Miller.
 
 
This year's honoree, for not only this year, but for the three short years she has been a member of this club, has been involved in club governance and created two new club events; Totally Tables and Gifts that Give Hope.  She actively supported the annual club scholarship auction and led last year’s effort through a difficult time.  She has spent countless hours assisting with other club events and encouraging and supporting Past President Cheryl Saint-Amand during her year as Club President, earning Cheryl's deepest gratitude.
