2013 SRI Organon 33rd Anniversary

2013 SRI Organon 33rd Anniversary

Members Naomi Levenson received the Club’s Toastmaster of the Year Award and Chat Vaewsorn received the Karl Lind Award.

The Community Leadership award recipient was Steve Rooks. Steve Rooks, a member of the SRI International family for 43 years, passed away on Monday, May 20, 2013. Steve’s passions in life were running with friends, being involved in his church, and volunteering with the American Red Cross. Steve was very active in the community in his efforts to help others. On his own time, Steve helped victims during the Santa Cruz floods in 1982, Hurricane Hugo in 1992, the floods in St. Louis in 1993, and more recently, Hurricane Katrina (he used an entire month of his personal vacation time so that he could stay in New Orleans helping those who suffered after that storm). Steve was always ready with a smile and helping hand for those around him. Ms. Karen Hedges, Steve’s dearest friend, accepted the Community Leadership award on Steve’s behalf.
