In 1983, the Kiwanis Children’s Fund established the George F. Hixson Fellowship. Named for Kiwanis International’s first president, Hixson Fellowships are awarded to donors who give $1,000 or more to the Children’s Fund. It’s a way of recognizing people who have contributed significantly to Kiwanis’ history of generosity. The Jacksonville Kiwanis Club provides one Hixson award annually. This years recipient is Larry Armstrong. He stands with past Kiwanis Hixson Fellowship recipients.
