ROTARY HONORS THREE IN MURRIETA WITH VOCATIONAL SERVICE AWARDS

A City of Murrieta police officer, fire department volunteer and  Murrieta Valley Unified School District teacher were honored today (Monday, Oct. 6) during the fourth annual Rotary Club of Murrieta Vocational Service Awards luncheon.

The three individuals – Police Officer Santino Abbate of the Murrieta Police Department, Volunteer Mike Samuels of the Murrieta Fire Department, and Teacher Timeree Kristell from Murrieta Mesa High School – were nominated by their respective agencies for their distinguished vocational and community service.  The awards luncheon was held at Loma Linda University Medical Center- Murrieta and was attended by Murrieta elected officials as well as community business leaders.

Denis Nurmela, lecturer and author, was the featured speaker at the event.  Nurmela teaches Organizational Behavior, Business Communication, and Introduction to Business at Mt. Jacinto College in addition to his activities as a talk show host and advisor.

“The Rotary Club of Murrieta is honored to recognize these upstanding citizens who through their work are making real differences in our community,” Frank Donahoe, past president of Rotary Club of Murrieta who presided at the gathering, said. “We asked the organizations to nominate individuals who exemplify the standards of Rotary, including ‘Service Above Self’ and the Four Way Test which stresses integrity and fairness while building good will and better friendships.”

Officer Santino “Tino” Abbate has been in law enforcement for 12 years, the last two-and-one-half years in the Murrieta Police Department where he is currently assigned to Murrieta Mesa High School as the resource officer.  In addition to his duties at the school, Officer Abbate is a special weapons and tactics (SWAT) operator and handles a wide variety of investigations to assist patrol officers.  He volunteers as Police Activities League officer and coaches his son’s football team as well as assisting with his daughter’s softball team.

The Fire Department’s Samuels has served as an administrative volunteer for more than three years, donating several hundred hours of in-kind service which frees up staff for better service to the community. He is retired from local government and is a long-time Murrieta resident.

The Murrieta Valley Unified School District’s honoree – Timeree Kristell -- teaches information, communication, technology and film at Murrieta Mesa High School.  She works at preparing students for college and careers through powerful learning programs, including integrated project and senior exit interviews.  Her advanced filmmaking students have created professional daily announcements for the school.  She has also developed a curriculum relationship with Beijing, China, teachers allowing U.S. and China students to participate in educational exchanges.

The Rotary Club of Murrieta was chartered on April 28, 1992.  The club is involved in many international and community projects, in cooperation with Rotary International, which has as its theme "Service Above Self."  Club meetings are held Mondays (excepting holidays) at noon at Richie's Diner in Murrieta.
