Rotary "Service Above Self" National Medal of Honor

Rotary Club of Americus hosts a luncheon and program honoring first responders selected to receive the National Medal of Honor. Each year, the club honors two firefighters of the year (Americus and Sumter County), a police officer of the year (Americus PD), and a deputy of the year (Sheriff's office). They are presented with the National Medal of Honor in front of family and colleagues. When possible, we try to surprise them.
