Welcome to the Findlay Rotary Club website! I am honored to be serving as President of this wonderful organization that has a long-standing history of making a positive difference in our community and world. In fact, our club will be celebrating 95 years of service during this Rotary Year!
Rotary International is represented by local clubs in 181 countries, and is the most respected and productive service organization of its kind in the world. The philosophy of Service Above Self is embraced by its members, which can be seen in the work of clubs around the globe. Projects may be local or international in scope; but regardless, it is the good work of members that improve countless numbers of lives by eradicating the dreadful Polio disease, improving drinking water, assisting with literacy projects, and providing funding to local nonprofits for various community projects and programs.
Our Rotary club meets at noon every Monday. If you desire to be involved with an organization where you can make a difference, please contact me, our administrative office or any Rotary member to learn more. We would be pleased to share more about how you can make our community and our world a better place in which to live.
President, Findlay Rotary Club
Rotary Golden Apple Award
the symbol of teaching excellence
The Findlay Rotary Club is looking for three outstanding teachers.
The Rotary Golden Apple Award, signifying teaching excellence, will be awarded each year to outstanding teachers in the elementary, middle, and high schools of Findlay/Hancock County.
The Club hopes the Golden Apple Awards will enhance the public’s respect for teachers and help attract new, dedicated people to the teaching profession.
The public is invited to nominate Findlay/Hancock County teachers who have made a dramatic difference in their lives. The Rotary Club will accept nominations of outstanding teachers until March 31, 2015. Nominations received after that date will not be considered in this year’s process.
Who is eligible
1. Teach Preschool through 12th Grade full-time in a Findlay or Hancock County School;
2. Have taught a minimum of three years in their current school system;
3. Have spent a majority of their time in the classroom.
NOTE: No self-nominations will be allowed and teachers may not receive the Golden Apple Award more than once.
HOW SEMI-FINALIST AND FINALIST ARE SELECTED
A Community Selection Committee, comprised of interested, civic-minded people, will screen the outstanding teachers nominated and choose nine semi-finalists (three each from the elementary, middle, and high school levels) who will be recommended to the Rotary Golden Apple Award Final Selection Committee. This Final Selection Committee will then select the three finalists.
WHAT FINALISTS RECEIVE
The Findlay Rotary Club will honor the three outstanding teachers at an awards dinner in the fall. Each of the three outstanding teachers will receive a Golden Apple Award and a $2,500 cash award.
SO, HELP US …
If you know a teacher who has improved a student’s life through excellent, dedicated teaching, nominate that teacher for the Findlay Rotary Club’s Golden Apple Award.
Just click on the nomination form link below and fill in all required information (nomination forms that are NOT completely filled out will NOT be considered). And, suggest to other students, past students, teachers, and parents that they help Findlay Rotary identify outstanding teachers by submitting a nomination.
The Best Outstanding Teachers will be honored at the 25th Annual Golden Apple Awards Dinner on Wednesday, October 14, 2015.
