Phx Rotary 100 Career-Community Award of Merit - Oct 16th, 2015

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Wins Prestigious Phoenix Rotary 100 Career-Community Award of Merit

Phoenix Rotary 100 presented the Honorable Justice Sandra Day O’Connor with the club's prestigious and coveted Career-Community Award of Merit in memory of Phoenix Mayor John Driggs, who was also a member of Phoenix Rotary 100 in October, 2015. 

The Career-Community Award of Merit is given to a person who has achieved distinguished honors in both his or her career AND in his or her community. Phoenix Rotary 100 selects recipients who have accomplished both, as did former Mayor John Driggs. Justice O’Connor is highly deserving of this recognition, as she was the first female Justice to serve on the United States Supreme Court after a distinguished law career in Arizona. She was an elected official and judge in Arizona, prior to President Reagan selecting her to the US bench.
