The Tom Cochran Perfect Attendance Awards


These awards were presented by Paula Fowler, one of our attendance coordinators at the June 30, 2021, Changing of the Guard ceremony.

In June of 2018, the Perfect Attendance award was officially named The Tom Cochran Perfect Attendance Award. At that time, Tom had attended the Rotary Club of Greensboro for 68 years with perfect attendance.  In recognition of his tireless devotion, Tom was granted “Lifetime Perfect Attendance” such that whether he was present in person or in spirit, he is marked present for all club meetings. It is in Tom’s honor that today we recognize current Rotarians with The Tom Cochran Perfect Attendance Awards.

Under the new criteria, Tom made it to 70.5 years! He passed away in November of 2020. He was 100 years old!

This past Rotary year was an unusual one. And we turn to Tom for inspiration once again. This year, we did not always get the attendance recorded, especially in the earlier parts of Zoom, and circumstances beyond our control sometimes kept us from being able to attend Rotary.
