The Rotary Club of Orange Park Sunrise recently honored St. Johns River State College employee Teresa (Terri) Dew as a Paul Harris Fellow. Dew serves as the faculty advisor for the College's Orange Park campus Rotaract Club, an active club that has received a Presidential Citation from Rotary International for the past two years. According to SJR State Rotaract President Armando Tolentino, "With her encouragement and advice, Mrs. Dew motivates us to get things done."

Mike Kloehn, former Interact and Rotaract coordinator for the Rotary Club of Orange Park Sunrise, said, "Terri was selected to be a Paul Harris Fellow because the Orange Park Sunrise Club believes she truly exemplifies the humanitarian and educational objectives of the Rotary Foundation. We sincerely thank her for not only her commitment to the students, but also for being a mentor and role model at SJR State."

Tolentino wholeheartedly agrees that Dew was a great choice for a Paul Harris Fellow. "Mrs. Dew's service to the Rotaract Club is extraordinary," he said. “As the club’s faculty advisor, she is someone who really cares for the students and the members of the club. She will take the time to talk to us and make sure that we are on track with our academics and our club events. With her kindness and bright smile, Mrs. Dew is someone whom we know we can talk to and have her complete support. Being recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow is something that she deserves for everything that she has done for us and the club."
