 In 1997-98, the Rotary International Board approved the creation of the Jean Harris Award which bears the name of the wife of Paul Harris, founder of Rotary International. This distinguished award honored the efforts of non-Rotarian women who have made a significant contribution to the development and progress of others in their communities.

Today the award is gender-neutral. District 7510 recognizes a non-Rotarian whose volunteer efforts have made a significant impact on the lives of others.

Clubs are encouraged to nominate a person who best exemplifies the volunteer service to others that this award represents.

An application form and invitation will be sent to all club presidents early in the calendar year.

Past recipients are listed below.
