Our Tom Cochran – Extraordinary in Every Way
Tom Cochran, the only member of our club to have been granted lifetime perfect attendance, is turning 100 this month. Tom joined the Rotary Club of Greensboro in April 1950 and immediately began his track record of perfect attendance. He attendance streak lasted for 68 years when the Board of Directors determined that he deserved “lifetime” perfect attendance. The attendance roster used for check-ins has a permanent check-mark beside Tom’s name.
Tom accomplished for more than just being a loyal Rotarian. He was a devoted son, husband, father, veteran, and business man. Read more about Tom’s extraordinary life using the following links.
