Rtn. Vinod RamchandraJadhav was honored with Major Donor Crystal and “Paul Harris Fellow” Pin by Rotary International for contribution to Global Grant Project to upgrade Pediatric Ward at Sassoon Hospital, Pune.
Pune, India – In a function organized by Rotary Club of Pune Heritage on 30th June 2018 at Pune, India, the Crystal and Pin were awarded by Rtn. Shirish Karnik, Director of Rotary Foundation Grants.
The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who have made substantial contributions to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. It was established in 1957 to show appreciation for and encourage substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships.
The first Paul Harris Fellows include 1937-38 RI Director Allison G. Brush and longtime RI Treasurer Rufus F. Chapin, both for donations made in 1946. Mrs. Adan Vargas was the first woman to receive the recognition, for a gift made in 1953. Mrs. Harry L. Jones was the second, and one of only five people recognized for contributions made in 1957.
Early Paul Harris Fellows received a certificate of recognition. In 1969, the Foundation unveiled the first Paul Harris Fellow medallion at the RI Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Japanese metal artist Fiju Tsuda created the piece under the direction of then-past Foundation Trustee Kyozo Yuasa. Today, Paul Harris Fellows receive a certificate and pin. They are also eligible to purchase a Paul Harris Fellow medallion.
