Charles “Charlie” Doyle (1949-2007) was a dedicated Rotarian, serving as the club’s secretary for more than 25 years. His commitment to Rotary, and to the Troy community, represents a standard of service by which others are compared. At their January 31st meeting, Troy Rotarians named Kathleen Moore as the recipient of the annual “Charlie Doyle” service award for the public relations work she does for the club.
Since accepting the challenge of raising the public’s awareness of the Rotary programs and activities in 2014, Moore has worked with her fellow Rotarians to issue press and news releases, arrange for radio interviews and TV coverage, and increase Troy Rotary’s social media presence and engagement. In February 2015, the club’s Mutinda Wildlife Education Center program was featured in the international magazine, The Rotarian. “I am honored to be given such recognition but know that it takes the entire Rotary club to share the good news of the programs we support that benefit the local community,” said Moore. She added that her PR Committee includes all the club’s members as they represent the face of Rotary every day.
Moore is Director of Marketing at TriVista. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Miami University, an MBA from Wright State University and will complete a master’s degree in Strategic Public Relations from The George Washington University in May.
Troy Rotarians and the Troy Rotary Foundation support several community projects annually. During the 2015-16 Rotary year, over $23,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including support for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program, Rotary’s annual Shoe Project, academic and community service scholarships, and sponsorships to summer camps at Brukner Nature Center and WACO Air Museum. The Troy Rotary Club is a member-involved, goal-oriented service club focused on socio/economic issues that have an impact both locally and internationally.
