Tyo chosen as Rotarian of the Year

PLATTSBURGH The Noon Rotary Club of Plattsburgh has named Keith D. Tyo the Rotarian of the Year for 2007-08. Tyo, executive assistant to the president at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, was presented with the award during the clubs July 30 meeting. Anthony D.J. Searing, immediate past president of the club, said Tyo was chosen for his assistance during the past year on various club initiatives and for promotion of the club. Tyo said he did not expect to receive the award. I enjoy working with the other Rotarians on various projects that benefit other local organizations that service the community, said Tyo. I didnt expect this since I believe there are truly many other Rotarians who deserve it more than me. Tyo joined the Rotary Club of Plattsburgh in August 2005 at the urging of Rotarian Nicholas Troisi. He served as chair of the clubs public relations committee for two years, including promotion of events such as the annual Rotary Fishing Classic and the Roducky Derby. A member of the clubs board of directors, Tyo is currently developing a new Web site for the club with the help of Media Central.
