DCTC Campus Lions Club President Gerardo Garay is on a roll this year, achieving another great success for the campus, the club and himself. He won the 2012 Junior Quarterback Service Award sponsored by the Minnesota Vikings.

“It’s a great honor,” said Garay. “It’s great knowing I’ve helped out the Lions Club and other people at the same time. And I have fun while I’m doing that.”

The award is given to students who provide outstanding volunteer service to their community. The Vikings were impressed with Gerardo’s leadership in fundraising for the Suicide Prevention Walk, the Woodbury Habitat for Humanity project, and the collection of used shoes and eyeglasses for those in need in Dakota County.

The $1,000 award will go to the DCTC Campus Lions Club, which sponsored Garay, and will be used for future service projects. The Minnesota Vikings Association presented Garay with a signed certificate showing the organization’s appreciation for his great accomplishment.

“Congratulations to Gerardo and the rest of the Lions board of directors and volunteers who have made the club such a remarkable success,” said Brett Kolles, DCTC Campus Lions Club co-advisor. “We rock and roar!”
