Carl B. Hyatt Fellowship

One of the Carolinas District's most distinguished Kiwanians, Carl B. Hyatt, Jr. joined the Kiwanis Club of Asheville in 1950. During the subsequent 36 years he served with distinction in numerous positions of leadership including club president, Lt. Governor, District Governor, District Secretary-Treasurer and International Trustee.

Carl B. Hyatt, Jr. was instrumental in fulfilling a dream of many Kiwanians in the Carolinas District. They wanted to provide an avenue for all Kiwanians in the District to participate in projects that may be beyond the capability of an individual club to undertake by themselves. Thus, in 1981 the Carolinas District Kiwanis Foundation was officially chartered. Carl was its first Secretary-Treasurer and he served ably in that office until his death in 1986.

The Carl B Hyatt Fellowship was created to honor the life and memory of this outstanding Kiwanian. His life demonstrated sharing, respect, teamwork, patience, understanding, love, and most of all, example. The Fellowship is the highest level of honor and recognition that is offered by the Carolinas District Kiwanis Foundation.

A contribution of $1000 will result in the donor or a person the donor may choose, receiving a distinctive desk plaque, a lapel pin, and an impressive medallion. Additionally, the recipient's name will be engraved, with all previous recipients, on a master plaque of the District Foundation. Donors will also receive documented tax deducibility.

Currently this award may be designated for the District-endorsed Victory Junction Gang Camp project. Awards not so designated will be added to the Foundationís endowment.

Through these awards over $375,000.00 have been raised for the Districtís charitable projects and/or the enhancement of the Carolinas District Kiwanis Foundation endowment.
