The Executive Dean of Blinn College’s Brenham Campus and the Camp Director of Camp For All have been honored by the Rotary Club of Washington County.
At its July meeting, the organization named Dr. John Turner and Kurt Podeswa as its “Rotarians of the Year”.
Past President William Grote said Dr. Turner and Podeswa were chosen for their help in keeping the organization functioning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Grote said the two were instrumental in continuing Rotary meetings through Zoom, adding that they both exemplified one of the mottos of Rotary: “Service Above Self”.
