Congratulations to our very own Dr. Kevin Luksus! He was awarded a Muncie Rotary Club VIVA Award for his amazing volunteer efforts as medical director of our free medical clinic. His passion for caring for others is unmatched.
The V!VA Awards were developed in 1993 as a gift to the Muncie community by the Muncie Rotary Club to recognize Delaware County’s proud volunteer heritage. The event rewards, reinforces, and inspires local volunteers to aspire to the Rotary ideal of “Service Above Self.” After receiving several nominations, a selection committee awarded traditional V!VA Awards to five individuals for their volunteer efforts in Delaware County within the past 12 months, and the Edmund F. Ball Lifetime Achievement Award to one person for her outstanding long-term volunteer commitment. Each V!VA Award Recipient received a plaque and public recognition for their efforts. The event began with 2022 District 6560 Rotarian of the Year Joann McKinney leading the Pledge of Allegiance and a proclamation from Mayor Dan Ridenour. Rotarian Dale Basham, a 2019 VIVA Lifetime Award winner, emceed the entire ceremony, which concluded with a benediction by Pastor Tammy Hallam of Eden Church.
