On July 1, Richard Thompson, out-going Garberville Lions Club President, presented the Multiple District 4C-2 ‘Student Lion of the Year’ trophy to Courtney Anne Weaver. Courtney received the trophy for her outstanding community service. The energetic, helpful attitude Courtney brings to each activity exemplifies the International Lions Club motto “We Serve.”
Past District Governor Marty Van Zandt said, “The Student Lion of the Year award was instituted as part of international efforts to become a more family oriented organization. The award is intended to recognize, encourage and reward responsible citizenship by youth in our communities. Those young people who learn to serve the community are our positive legacy for the future.” The Student Lion of the Year for Multiple District 4C-2 has been given to eight Student Lions including Courtney since 1998.

Garberville Lions were honored to present the ‘Student Lion of the Year to Courtney. She will keep the trophy for one year. The plaque that accompanied the trophy remains with her.
