Fellowship for Tracy

Fellowship for Tracy

An honour awarded in the past to world leaders and an astronaut has been granted to one of Adullam’s Leicester team members.

A Paul Harris Fellowship has been presented to Tracy Ferguson, Operations and Property Manager at Adullam’s Leicester projects, by the Rotary Club of Leicester De Montfort.

To become a Paul Harris Fellow, the person must have shown exceptional service to Rotary and the community, over and above what would normally be expected. Paul Harris was the founder of Rotary International.

Tracy has already been congratulated on this wonderful achievement by her Regional Manager Viv Michell and staff at the projects.

De Montfort Rotary Club has supported Adullam’s Bethany project and the former The GAP project for more than 20 years, with Tracy’s late sister, Jayne Ferguson, being one of the original members. She remained an active member/President until her sudden death in Jan 2010. 

Tracy and her remaining sister Wendy provide their services to the Rotary Club in honour of their sister and the Club continues to support the Bethany residents and their children with an annual trip to a local theme park, lunch included.

At the recent Rotary Christmas Breakfast meeting, Tracy and Wendy were awarded the Paul Harris Fellow Award. 

This brings the total of Paul Harris Fellows in the Ferguson family to three, as Tracy’s late sister was awarded hers shortly after her death.

They are in good company as others to have gained this Rotary Fellowship are the former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, and U.S. astronaut James Lovell.
