Heart-felt congratulations are in order for one of our most beloved and active District 2-X1 Lions! PDG Carolyn Dorman (DG 2006-2007) was awarded the Lions Club International (LCI) Ambassador of Goodwill Award at the recent gathering of the Texas Council of Governors on February 6, 2016 in Kerrville, TX. The award represents the highest honor that is bestowed by the International association based in Chicago, Il.

The award is well-deserved, honoring PDG Carolyn’s history of her year’s of service at the local, district and state level. She was the driving force in the organization and compositing of District 2-X1’s leadership in training of new Lions. She helped create and perpetuate District 2-X1s Lions University, a yearly even that trains over 150 Lions every year and is a model all over the world for excellence in training. She was head of the GLT for the District for five years during that period of service, then moved into a State MD-2 role for coordination of the Centennial Celebration. She also serves as the current Chair of the Long Range Strategic Planning Committee for MD-2.
“Lion Carolyn has been an inspiration for Lions everywhere, especially Texas Lions, unselfishly giving of her time and strength to further Lion’s service to the community and to the world.
