Rotarian of the Year – 2019







Tiffany J. Mathias joined the State College Sunrise Rotary Club in August 2018. From day one, she exhibited a commitment and enthusiasm to excel in the basic Rotary activities such as meeting attendance, club committee work, membership recruitment, and participation in projects and fundraisers. She maintained perfect attendance, making-up promptly whenever business travel precluded meeting attendance. She was a regular as a guest member at monthly Board meetings. She proposed two new prospects that are now active, dynamic members. She volunteered to chair the “Letters to Santa” program and infused it with new life. While balancing career, family, and Rotary commitments, she attended and graduated from the three-part training seminars conducted by the Rotary Leadership Institute. Tiffany will join the Board as the club secretary this coming year; she is the standard setting Rotarian of the Sunrise Club.
