Vineland's Melanie Druziako Named Rotarian of the Year

Posted:
VINELAND At a recent gathering of Rotary District 7640, Vineland Rotary's very own Melanie Druziako was named the 2015 Rotarian of the Year.
The award, the district's most prestigious, was presented by Tim Datig, past District Governor.
"I don't know anyone who is more involved with or passionate about the young people of South Jersey than Melanie," said Datig. "Thanks to her work, Rotary District 7640 is home to one of the largest and most active Interact programs in North America. We have more than 3,000 Interact Club members in the district. She is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated Rotarian. One of my fondest memories of Melanie is seeing her arrive at the United Nations in New York City with two busloads of students on Rotary Day. She always goes above and beyond and is most deserving of this award."
Druziako is District 7640 Youth Services Director and is responsible for the area's Interact and Rotaract Clubs, Rotary Youth Exchange, and the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA).
"We are incredibly proud of Melanie and both honored and fortunate to have her as a member of our club," said Wayne Triantos, President, Rotary Club of Vineland. "We've known for years how wonderful she is and the difference she has made for countless kids.  It's great to see her recognized at the district level."
Druziako is in her ninth year as a Rotarian and lives in Vineland.
