Rutland South Rotary Club bestowed the “Service Above Self” Award to Chief Baker
One of Rotary’s mottos is “Service Above Self”. To honor outgoing Rutland City Police Chief James Baker, Rutland South Rotary Club bestowed the “Service Above Self” Award during their December 11th weekly meeting. This special award acknowledges Chief Baker’s dedication, hard work, commitment, and tireless efforts to help change the culture of the Rutland City Police Department and how people think and feel about the Rutland Community.
Along with the award was a $1000 donation from Rutland South Rotary Club in Chief Baker’s name to be used for scholarships enabling children to attend summer camps who might not have the means to do so.
