Marshall County Court Clerk Daphne Fagan receives her recognition as the Lewisburg Rotary Club Expert in the Field as presented by Rotary Awards Chair Phillip Baxter.

As the end of the year approaches, the Lewisburg Rotary Club turns its focus to recognizing individuals in the community who have made a positive impact through their service, their leadership and as a shining example to others.

Each year, the Lewisburg Rotary Club recognizes its Volunteer of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year and the Expert in the Field.

This year, Marshall County Court Clerk Daphne Fagan was recognized and honored by the Lewisburg Rotary Club as its Expert in the Field at the Oct. 3 meeting.

Fagan served in the office of the Marshall County Court Clerk since 1989 before winning election to her first term as Marshall County Court Clerk in 1998. Currently serving her third term,

Fagan has run unopposed in the past two elections as a testament to her outstanding work as county court clerk. Fagan oversees a myriad of responsibilities from renewal of vehicle tags to all sorts of licensing -- marriage, business, hunting and fishing. Other duties of the county clerk office include beer tax/permits, boat registrations, vehicle titles, passports, notary public applications and more. One area of promotion by Fagan and her office is organ donor awareness -- the subject of the Lewisburg Rotary Club's focus for its yearly project currently underway. Information on organ and tissue donation is available and you can even give to the Organ Donor Awareness Fund through Fagan's office.

In addition to her daily duties, Fagan serves as record keeper/secretary for the Marshall County Commission.

Fagan also serves her community as a board member for Wee Care Center and through her church, Westvue Church of Christ, where she attends with husband, Randy, and her two children, Jennifer, a student at UT-Martin, and Dakota, a student at Lewisburg Middle School.

Next year, Fagan will be named one of the youngest persons to chair the county clerk association.

These are just a few of the reasons Fagan was nominated and elected by the Lewisburg Rotary Club as its Expert in the Field.
