MUNSTER | The Munster Rotary Club recognized their 'Rotarian of the Year' and installed a new board of directors and officers on Tuesday during a ceremony at Centennial Park.

Munster Police Chief Steve Scheckel was celebrated as 2012-2013's Rotarian of the Year.

"It is truly in an honor to serve with a group of dedicated individuals," said Scheckel. "I am always inspired by my fellow rotarians who are so very committed to their community."

Scheckel was responsible for creating a new initiative coined "Woman of the Year" in which several community leaders were celebrated with the award eventually being presented to Lydia Dershewitz for her work with Hospice of the Calumet Area.

Citizens Financial Bank's Regional Sales Manager Theresa Mudd also took her oath as she was appointed to take Scheckel's place as president. People's Bank Vice President and Munster Banking Center Manager Candice Kouros-Logue will serve as president elect.

"Rotary is a very important part of my life," said Theresa Mudd, Rotary president. "The Chief is a hard act to follow. I look forward the opportunity to serve and continue the fellowship and the dedication this group has to making a positive impact in our community."
