Charles Stokes is named the 2011 Kiwanian of the Year during Thursday's 51st Anniversary Celebration of the Kiwanis Club of Statesboro at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fairgrounds.
A pseudo-Elvis Presley made the ladies swoon Thursday night at the Statesboro Kiwanis Club's 51st anniversary celebration, but the star of the night was 2011 Kiwanian of the Year, Charles Stokes. Several members were honored for different achievements, but Stokes, longtime secretary for the club, was chosen for the Kiwanian of the Year because of exemplary service, dedication, and love for the club. "This is not an award that is handed out lightly," said club president Bede Mitchell.
