Service Above Self Awards
for law enforcement and first responders
Every year, the club honors police, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and other first responders for service above the call of duty that helps make our communities safer. Winners, along with the chiefs of their departments, are invited to a special awards presentation at one of the club's weekly meetings. In 2021, because of the COVID pandemic, the awards were presented remotely.
Rotarian Ben David, district attorney for New Hanover and Pender Counties, organizes the award program and makes the presentations.
