Guardian of Integrity Award presentation:
The award is named for Boone Rotarian and Past District Governor (1954-55), Judge Paul E. Hellwege, who passed away in 2010, and is established to promote the ideals of ethics and integrity, which were Paul’s fervent passions.
This award recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions that foster the development of integrity. The awards single out persons who have made contributions in business, media, academia, or government and who have, by their actions, writing, policies, and public pronouncements, strengthened and fostered the development of integrity and ethical practices.
We are excited to announce Sarah Lande as the first Guardian of Integrity award winner for the Rotary Club of Muscatine.
