Rotary’s highest honor recognizes community members who demonstrate service above self, by volunteering their time and talents to others. The award is internationally recognized and is granted to no more than 150 recipients each year. This year, Miles of Old Town Media was selected as the Service Above Self Award recipient from the Rotary Club of Fort Collins for his selfless humanitarian efforts.
Miles’ commitment to Rotary Club of Fort Collins is obvious. He is actively involved as a member of the Peach Sale Committee, Public Relations Committee, Greens Fore Giving Golf Tournament Committee and was a recognized speaker at the 2015 District 5440 Conference in June. Applying his passion for technology, Kailburn took it upon himself to completely revitalize the sales and logistics for both the Peach Festival and Greens Fore Giving Tournament. Ultimately, Kailburn streamlined the order and payment processes to help increase efficiency and usability.
In addition to Rotary, Miles participates in the Meals on Wheels program and volunteers at the Larimer County Food Bank. As a co-owner of Old Town Media, a full-service digital agency, Kailburn proactively supports other local businesses by donating website and marketing services to local non-profits throughout northern Colorado.
The Service Above Self Award was established in 1988 as a way to honor a person who has significantly contributed to the betterment of life in the Fort Collins community. The Club received nominations for the Service Above Self Award from members of the Club and the community. The winner may or may not be a Rotarian but has demonstrated personal integrity and the drive to improve the lives of many by donating time and effort without expecting anything in return. Past recipients of the Service Above Self Award include Pat Stryker of Bohemian Nights and Bob and Joyce Everitt, advocates of Lincoln Center.
