The Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach recently named PFC David Clever as the Joe McGarry Police Officer of the Year. PFC Clever, the club’s 54th recipient, is a Myrtle Beach police officer and member of the U.S. Marshals Task Force.
In introducing the seven nominees, emcee, Matt Sedota, thanked the officers for their hard work and dedication.
“Winning this award is a great honor. It means a lot to our officers to be recognized by Rotary and to give a name to the faces who work to keep our community safe,” PFC Clever said.
PFC Clever accepted the award, along with a Paul Harris medallion, before an audience of more than 150 Rotarians, city officials, and members of Myrtle Beach law enforcement.
This year’s program was chaired by Pat Stanley with assistance from committee members: Gary Loftus, Bryan Mroz, Matt Sedota, Tommy Chapin, and Mayur Jeram.
