Bobo Thompson, owner of Georgetown Auto Glass has been named the McRoy Skipper Rotarian of the Year by the Rotary Club of Georgetown. The award is the highest honor rotary club members can receive and is earned by demonstrating exceptional service over an extended period of time. Thompson has been a member of the club since 2017 and one of his many contributions is leading the service projects of the club. Thompson received the award at a special presentation during the Valentine’s social on February 11th.
The Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self,” a mantra that Thompson takes seriously. In addition to his involvement with the Rotary Club of Georgetown, he serves on the board of the Salvation Army.
“His service to Rotary, our club and our community was unmatched, and I’m proud to count him as not only a fellow Rotarian but also as a dear friend,” says Angie Kohl, Public Image Director.

The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.
