Penticton’s Kim Lawton, was recently recognized as a Fellow of JCI Canada. A JCI Canada Fellowship is an honourary lifetime membership awarded to an individual member as a means of honouring them for their outstanding service to the corporation.

Lawton was a welcome addition when she joined JCI Penticton in 2007.

“Kim is full of energy and ideas. She was quick to jump in and join a number of different committees and offer her help and support,” said Carol Sheridan, JCI Penticton president. “When she makes a commitment to do something for you or our chapter, we can always count on it getting done.”

Lawton has held different executive positions within JCI Penticton including a term as communications director and a term as vice-president. She has also chaired and participated in a variety of different projects and initiatives for JCI.

“Kim has helped to build JCI’s positive image in the community. She has worked to build relationships between JCI Penticton and the Penticton and Summerland chambers of commerce, and she is an outstanding representative of JCI Penticton in our community,” said Sheridan.

This Fellowship follows a string of other awards for Lawton including JCI Penticton Rookie of the Year in 2008 and JCI Penticton Executive Member of the Year in 2009.
