Dear Montgomery County Resident,


For nearly 30 years the Rotary Club of Blacksburg has recognized an outstanding Montgomery County resident as the Rotary Club of Blacksburg’s Citizen of the Year. This Award was established to recognize persons of varied careers and vocations for their ethical business behavior.


You may nominate an outstanding individual for our 2019 Award by completing and returning the attached nomination form (one name per nomination form).


Citizen of the Year nominees must: 1) Be a Montgomery County resident, and, 2) Not be a Rotarian.


Selection for this award will be based primarily on the nominee’s ethical business behavior, service to the community, and we select nominees who represent the various careers and vocations throughout our community.


A good test in considering a nominee is to ask yourself if the nominee exhibits Rotary’s motto – Service Above Self ; and our Four Way Test.

  1. Is it the Truth?
  2. Is it Fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
  4. Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?


If you know someone who might fit, do not let the nomination process be an obstacle.  The nomination form is short and straightforward.


Please note that the nomination deadline is December 18th. Nominations are to be submitted to Rotary Club of Blacksburg (Attn. T Loflin), P O Box 264, Blacksburg, VA  24063, or to .


Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.


Very respectfully,


Tommy Loflin

Vocational Service Committee
