The Rotary Club of Los Altos presented its Paul Harris Fellowship Award to longtime community volunteer Gay Krause June 13.
The club recognized Krause’s service to the community, particularly her 25 years as chairwoman of the Mountain View/Los Altos/Los Altos Hills Challenge Team. The team sponsors programs designed to help youth make positive decisions and lead healthy lives. In addition to her volunteer work, Krause serves as director of Foothill College’s Krause Center for Innovation, which trains teachers to apply technologies in the classroom.
Past President Mona Armistead selected Krause for the award from among members’ nominations.
“Gay is an extraordinary gift to our community,” Armistead said.
On accepting the award, Krause said she has “a lot of respect for the worthwhile causes of Rotary, including the eradication of polio.”
