Jarvis Awarded Hixon Fellowship

The Kiwanis Club of Hasbrouck Heights and Teterboro presented Colleen M. Jarvis, Lieutenant Governor of Division 13, the prestigious George F. Hixson Fellowship award at their Christmas Party on December 12th.

The Hixson Fellowship was established by the International Foundation in 1983 in honor of George F. Hixson, the first president of Kiwanis International, and to build the endowment fund of Kiwanis International Foundation.

The Worldwide Service Project was adopted by Kiwanis with the goal of virtually eliminating iodine deficiency disorders, the world’s leading cause of preventable mental retardation in children. A contribution of $1,000 was given in Colleen’s name and the money will touch the lives of 20,000 children.

Kiwanis International, known for serving the world’s children, has made a commitment to the children of the world to virtually eliminate this scourge from the face of the earth. However, without the generosity of the Kiwanians of Hasbrouck Heights and Teterboro, it could not succeed.

Peter J. Gallo, Jr., past president and past Lieutenant Governor, made the presentation. He said, "We are pleased to present this recognition to Colleen M. Jarvis, on behalf of the children of the world".

Gallo told Jarvis, "You are encouraged to wear this medallion at special club, division, district and Kiwanis International functions".

Other members who previously received this award are Peter J. Gallo, Jr. and Marie Gallo. ###
