The District 6000 "Guardian of Integrity" award is named for Boone Rotarian and Past District Governor (1954-1955), Judge Paul E. Hellwege, who passed away in 2010.  This award was established to promote the ideals of ethics and integrity which were Pauls' fervent passions.  The award is presented annually to Rotarians who have been a member of a club in District 6000 for a minimum of three years and who have made outstanding contributions that foster the development of integrity.  It singles out persons who have made contributions in business, media, academia or government and who have, by their actions, writing, policies and public pronouncements, strengthened and fostered development of integrity and ethical practices in their vocational, business and personal lives that Paul exemplified.
Each club in District 6000 may nominate one member each year.  Sally Schroeder has been selected to be the nominee for the Rotary Club of Ankeny for 2019.  She will be recognized at the 2019 Rotary District 6000 Conference to be held May 2-4 at the West Des Moines Sheraton.  Congratulations Sally!
