Jan Stevens of the Northfield Rotary Club recently was presented with the club's "Service Above Self" award.

Stevens honored with "Service Above Self" award

Stevens has been a club member for 11 years and currently heads up our Youth Exchange program. Through her guidance, and that of her predecessor David Brown, the interest and success of the Youth Exchange program in Northfield has become a model of respect and admiration.

While developing a career in real estate the past 18 years, Stevens has still found time to be involved in, among other things, the Rice County 4H program, Minnesota Rural Futures Program, Ag in the Classroom at the Department of Agriculture, Northfield Historical Society and various activities at her church The UCC in Northfield.

Stevens and her husband, Stan, have three children Carlson, 28, Andrew, 23, and SaraJane, 20.
