In recognition of Sheila Eaglesome's continuing commitment to The Rotary Foundation, the members of the Rotary Club of Greater Jamestown AM presented Eaglesome with a multiple Paul Harris Fellow award for her financial support.
The mission of the Rotary Foundation is to world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.
The award, containing two sapphires, one for each level of achievement, was presented by Bill Briggs, the club's foundation chairperson.

"It gives me great pleasure to present Sheila with this multiple Paul Harris Fellow pin in recognition and appreciation of her generous contributions to world peace," Briggs said."Sheila is a charter member of the club and only the third member to have achieved this prestigious three-time Paul Harris Fellow meaning she has exceeded the $3,000 mark in gifts to the foundation."
To date, the members of the Rotary Club of Greater Jamestown AM have donated individually more than $65,000 to The Rotary Foundation and have realized $42,000 of that back through community and international grants, and other club designated awards, including one local young woman who was awarded an Ambassadorial Scholarship to India.
The Rotary Foundation was formed in 1917 to support the efforts of local Rotary clubs in the fulfillment of the Rotary International mission.
Eaglesome is the owner of Quick Solutions, the mother of Melissa Uber and Michelle Camarata and many grandchildren.
