2020 Grover III and Sandra Robinson Awards

Posted June 30, 2020

In June 2000, following the tragic death of Grover III and Sandra Robinson, the Club began the annual Grover III and Sandra Robinson Awards in memory of their outstanding community leadership. Grover was Past President and a Paul Harris Fellow. The couple exhibited the Rotary Motto, “Service Above Self” in all areas of life – professional, community and family. Each year a community leader is selected for these awards based on their work for making our community a better place.

This Year the Grover Robinson III Award was presented to Dr. Ed Meadows, President of Pensacola State College for his outstanding leadership in providing education degrees, training and certificate programs to foster lifelong careers.

Selected for the Sandra Robinson Award was Ms. Teri Levin, Co-Owner Levin-Rinke Realty and philanthropist, for her support and contributions in building an additional wing to the Gulf Coast Kids House serving abused children and for making our community a better place to live by supporting many non-profits organizations such as Pensacola Museum of Art, Pensacola Symphony, WSRE and American Cancer Society, Autism Pensacola, etc.
