| 15/12/2014

(Rotary): Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central last week recognized two outstanding Caymanians for their contribution to their vocations.  The annual Vocational Service Award recognizes those individuals who have gone above and beyond on what has been required in their vocations. Recognized at the weekly Rotary Central meeting were Police Officer Miguel McFarlane andshipping advisor Raymond Scott. Officer McFarlane is well known to all Caymanians and businesses of Central George Town and along the waterfront. His pleasant smile and willingness to help anyone who looks for any kind of assistance. 

"When I joined the Police it was not for the money or positon, I joined because I truly saw a way of helping my community in a constructive way", said Officer McFarlane as he humbly accepted his Award from President Larry Tibbetts. "I thank Rotary Central for the very nice andkind recognition that you have given me” said Officer McFarlane.  Police Commissioner Baines who was also in attendance spoke highly of Officer McFarlane.  “Officer Miguel McFarlane optimizes the highest qualities of a police officer and is truly loved by the entire community of the Cayman Islands” noted Commissioner Baines.

Raymond Scott may not be visibly recognizable as Officer McFarlane, but his voice is certainly known if you listen to any of the talk shows. Mr. Scott is the Sub-Agent for Lloyds of London for Cayman Brac & Little Cayman and Cayman Shipping Advisor.  “I started as a shipping advisor at the age of 15; during my career I have been involved in over 100 rescues at sea,” he said. “This has included ships on fire, distress, and so on, and I have never gotten paid for it.  I do this because I love being able to help others and keeping alive the seafaring traditions of Cayman”

Both awardees were nominated by Rotarian Kent Eldermire, a member of Rotary Central.
