Elbert Hudson, a Kiwanian for more than 40 years and retired Superintendent of Schools in Lee County received the George F. Hixson Fellowship from the Kiwanis Club of Richmond in recognition of his many years of service.

The Kiwanis International Foundation Board of Trustees created the George F. Hixson Fellowship in 1983 to honor the first Kiwanis International President. Hixson, who served from 1916 to 1918, holds the distinction of being the only leader to serve two terms as Kiwanis International President. Overall, his record accounts for more than 50 years of dedication to Kiwanis service.

Individuals establish membership through a US$1,000 contribution. New George F. Hixson Fellowship members receive two numbered medallions bearing the likeness of Hixson. Both hang from a blue and white ribbon. One is encased in a walnut and velvet shadow box for display, and the other is worn at formal Kiwanis functions. Also awarded is a tie tack/lapel pin.

The Kiwanis Club of Richmond designated the contribution in Hudson's name go to the Kiwanis International Worldwide Service Project which during the past decade, had collected more than $75 million, which allowed nations to implement salt-iodization programs. Worldwide, Iodine Deficiency Disorder rates declined significantly. Kiwanis currently has a goal to collect a minimum $3 million in net contributions to build on and sustain this success.

Herman Lamb, who is recovering from a major illness, was likewise awarded a George F. Hixson Fellowship by the Kiwanis Club of Irvine-Ravenna. The club members will presnt the Hixson to him at a later time.
