The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club (DMSB Rotary) recently recognized Radia Bencheikh as its Rotarian of the Year and presented her with a Paul Harris Fellow award from The Rotary Foundation. These honors were presented to Bencheikh for her enthusiastic and tireless leadership and service to both the club and its beneficiaries.

Bencheikh served as the club’s International Service Chair this past year and led or participated in many local service activities. This Rotary year she chairs the club’s Community Service Committee.  She said that her best Rotary experience has been “seeing the school DMSB Rotary built in El Salvador and supports each year, and playing with the young children there.”  A close second was “working with the at-risk and homeless youth participating in the San Diego Youth Services’ Take Wing transitional living program.”

Bencheikh’s many volunteer efforts with Rotary (and the Junior League) are in addition to her full-time job as Associate Financial Advisor with a local financial services firm and to her studies toward federal and state licenses and, ultimately, her Certified Financial Planner certification.

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club is one of over 34,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries that work to make the world a better place through education, job training, microcredit funding, improved water and health, and the eradication of polio.  Interested persons are invited to attend one of the club’s weekly Friday breakfast meetings at the Marriott Hotel in Carmel Valley.  For more information, call Richard Fogg (858-693-7556) or see www.DMSBRotary.com.
