At PRIME, in addition to visiting with members, we recognize members who have reflected the core Rainmakers values of BE, DO HAVE and GIVE. The recipients were:
BE AWARD – Recognizing the Character and Spirit of a Rainmaker: Gerilyn Davis. Gerilyn exemplifies the BE quality by showing up for others, expressing a positive attitude and being intentional about helping others in the Rainmakers community.
DO AWARD – Recognizing the activity and momentum that it takes to be a Rainmaker: Zach Taylor. Zach is active in the Rainmakers community. He has been the driving force behind Rainmakers Young Professionals since its inception.
HAVE AWARD – Recognizing the abundance that a Rainmaker creates: Tommy Richardson. Tommy’s career is a case study in abundance. Tommy continually finds ways to improve the Rainmakers community by offering his time and resources in the personal development arena.
GIVE AWARD – Recognizing the servant leadership of a Rainmaker: Tom Flanagan. Tom was responsible for introducing the largest servant leadership initiative of 2014, Secret Families, to the Rainmakers organization. He has consistently demonstrated acts of service to Rainmakers and the community at large.
Also, a special thanks to Apprentice University apprentices Ginny Brueggen, Justin Dickey, Justin Moran and Kelsey Brossart along with Kathy Galvin for manning the Rainmakers Connect table.
The Road Ahead for Rainmakers involves excellence, as we consistently strive to enhance the Rainmakers offerings. Rainmakers as an organization will continually work to create strategic alliances with other great organizations so we can collaborate to serve the Indianapolis community.
Thanks to all who attended!
