ALBION – The Albion Rotary Club presented Kevin Doherty with a Paul Harris Fellow. The presentation of a Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.

Rotarians often designate a Paul Harris Fellow as a tribute to a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives of The Rotary Foundation. The Albion Rotary Club had the honor and pleasure of recognizing Kevin Doherty as he becomes a Paul Harris Fellow.

Kevin has given back to the community for a number of years and in a number of different ways. He served on the Albion Central School Board, taking leadership on watching building projects at the school through completion. He is active at his church, active with the Boy Scouts and has supported the Albion Strawberry Festival for many years. He has served since 2005 on the Swan Library / Hoag Library board, and served as President of the Board for most of that time. As a board member, he has taken a significant leadership role helping to plan, raise money, work with lawyers and bankers, purchase property and work with the builders to complete the library project. By taking on that leadership role, Kevin encouraged the community to participate in the project in many ways, and helped to keep the project moving. The end result is a beautiful library that the community has embraced.
