100 Club of Arizona Founding Father Bill Shover will be presented with the Jason Schechterle Lifetime Achievement Award for his dedication to the Phoenix community and Arizona’s public safety at the 100 Club’s 7th Annual Jason Schechterle Scholarship Ball on Sept. 28.
The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an outstanding person who has made exemplary contributions to their local community as well as the public safety community in Arizona.
Shover worked with several Phoenix businessmen in the mid-60s to bring the “100 Club concept” from Detroit to Arizona. For more than 45 years, the 100 Club of Arizona has been dedicated to standing behind the men and women who stand behind the badge. The creation of this public safety nonprofit is just one on a long list of accomplishments that Shover has achieved in his lifetime.
After 40 years at The Arizona Republic, Shover retired in 1998 and continues to support many cultural and youth organizations.
The Annual Jason Schechterle Scholarship Ball will take place at the Arizona Grand Resort on Saturday, Sept. 28, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour. Tickets are $125. For more information, visit www.100club.org or call the 100 Club office at 602-485-0100.
