ROB WORLEY LEADERSHIP AWARD
The Rob Worley Leadership Award was given to Lion Scott Opperud of the Spokane Central Lions Club who has shown leadership abilities both within the Club and the community. Lion Scott has great leadership skills and for some time has lead us all in our largest fund raiser, the beer garden at the fairgrounds. This happens several times a year and Scott has kept us all involved and the project has been a major success.
Members from SCL who have been recipients of this award include PDG Laura Wintersteen-Arleth, John Wilson, Roger Arleth and Bob Scheel and Jerry Williams.
For those members who are not familiar with who Rob Worley was, he joined SCL in 1994 sponsored by Lion Jim Morris. He quickly went up through the ranks serving as President from 1998-1999, Zone Chair from 1999-2000, Vice District Governor from 2001-2002, and as MD19E District Governor in 2002-2003. He was the recipient of the Melvin Jones Fellow award and the International President’s Award and many others. He was married to Sandy Worley (now Eberle) for 25 years before his passing in August of 2003. His motto during his year as DG was “Growing Lion Leaders”; therefore the reason the Leadership Award was established.
