The Greater Mankato Rotary Club has selected the recipients of the 2018 Service Above Self Awards.

The awards recognize individuals and groups who demonstrate exemplary service through personal volunteer efforts that help others.

The Mankato Symphony Orchestra was recognized for providing high quality music performances and education in the Mankato and the Southern Minnesota area for 65 years, using a wide range of musical works and local artists.

Lime Valley Marketing President Brian Maciej (MAH-chay) was selected by the Rotary for his many hours of business and personal time donated to several nonprofit agencies, including the Twin Valley Boy Scouts of America, United Way, One Bright Star and the Diversity Council.

Minnesota State University Facility Services Director and campus ‘parking and traffic guru’ David Cowan was named for his expertise in training individuals in traffic control, and his service on many campus nonprofit boards – as well as having been a board member of Partners for Affordable Housing for 35+ years, an active volunteer at Camp Patterson and past president of the Kiwanis Club.

The Service above Self Recipients will be honored at a luncheon on Wednesday, February 28th at the Courtyard by Marriott.
