JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The 2014 Rotary Club of Johns Creek-North Fulton named Angela Harvey as its 2014 Rotarian of the Year on July 16.
Harvey, a retired school teacher, joined the club two years ago. She has been heavily involved in organizing Rotary events and fundraisers and has represented the club at various community events.
“Community service is a passion for me, so I was very honored to receive this award from my peers,” said Harvey. “I also feel that it brings responsibilities and encouragement to do more.”
Harvey was instrumental in coordinating Rotary social events, as well as serving on committees for the club’s annual Fish Fry fundraiser, Santa in Summer event and volunteered at the Northeast Spruill Oaks Library book sale on behalf of Rotary.
“Angela is exceptionally deserving of this award,” said Rotary Club President Bev Miller. “She stands out for her dedication and enthusiasm for Rotary and truly exemplifies our motto, ‘Service Above Self.’”
Harvey said Rotary has been a springboard for her involvement in Johns Creek. She is also a board member of the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra and is a graduate of the 2014 Leadership Johns Creek.
