Findlay Rotary Presents ‘Service Above Self Award’

The Findlay Rotary Club has presented its Service Above Self Award to Mary Beth Hammond.

The award is presented annually to a non-Rotarian in the community who exemplifies the Rotary ideals of professional leadership and service.

“Mary Beth has perhaps the strongest sense of community duty of anyone I know,” said Findlay Rotarian Bill Life in nominating Hammond.

“I have always been in awe in the love she has for Findlay, people in general and her unselfish devotion to helping others with her time, talent and treasure. Mary Beth has touched many lives in Findlay over the past 35 years through extraordinary service for many good causes. She is widely known around town as someone you can rely on to get the job done.”

Professionally, Hammond has served the community in various banking positions, currently as vice president and senior private banker for Fifth Third Bank.

Throughout her career, she has also served on numerous community organizations such as Camp Fire, Open Arms, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, St. Michaels Church, Findlay Service League, Julie Cole Charity Golf Outing, Handbags That Help, Susan G. Komen, United Way, The Arts Partnership and many other area organizations.

Mary Beth has designated a $500 contribution made in her name by the Findlay Rotary Club to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
