Stone Mountain Resident Bob Hope Named Rotarian of the Year
Bob Hope, president of Atlanta public relations agency Hope-Beckham Inc., was selected Rotarian of the Year for Rotary District 6900 at the District Conference on April 29 in Sandestin, Fla. Hope is a member of the Rotary Club of Atlanta and the first member in the 100-year history of that club to be named Rotarian of the Year.
The award is given by the district of more than 4,000 Rotarians to a member who exemplifies Rotary’s Four Way Test: Is it true? Is it fair to all concerned? Does it build goodwill? Is it beneficial to all concerned?
