A local man is being recognized for his positive influence on kids in the Wabash Valley.
The Terre Haute Rotary Club honored Bobby Moore with the Four Avenues of Service award.
Moore is the Director of Operations with the Terre Haute Boys and Girls Club.
His involvement with the organization dates back to his teen years.
He has served the club for more than 30 years. He says he never imagined receiving this honor.
But his peers say it was only a matter of time.
“He is really helping move this community forward and solving a lot of problems. I think that is what Rotary is about, and I don’t think there could be a better representative of what Rotary is than Bobby,” says Rotary Club president, Brien Smith.
“Growing up you had a lot of people that was really influential in my life, by serving us, and helping us achieve different goals, be in school, whether it be in the community, or to just be giving back to our community. So I thought, hey listen, I want to do like those people do and continue to give and support our community and support the people that’s in our community,” says Bobby Moore.
Moore is the last person to receive the 4 Avenues of Service award.
The honor is being retired and replaced by the 5 Avenues of Service award.
