Most Rotary Clubs around the world have a Rotarian of the Year Award—The Rotary Club of Edmond’s version is called the George Mikesell Award. The award is named after a longtime member of the Edmond Central Club. Mikesell was a mentor to other Rotarians—through friendship and example. He gave 51 years of service as a Rotarian—with 47 years of perfect attendance. 

Club Member and 2019-2020 Award Recipient, Janet Yowell presented Lyle with the award. Yowell said, “Jessica takes on any responsibility and meets the Rotary Four-Way Test in all that she does.”   Yowell commented that Lyle was an important part in keeping the club vibrant during the pandemic.  She created a successful Zoom trivia fundraiser, served as the” Zoom master” during the time when the club couldn’t meet and helped the club have a successful transition from virtual meetings back to in-person meetings.
