Rotarian of the Year Award

In 2015 the Rotary Club of Leuven gave perpetual trophies to each of the Pentangular Clubs to be presented to a Rotarian who had given special service during the year.

This year it was given to Rotarian Margaret Griffin for her outstanding work in the South Juba Diocesan Model Secondary School in South Sudan.
