Hal Rogers Fellow

The Hal Rogers Fellow is the highest award given by the Kin Canada Foundation. This award was established to recognize Canadians who, by their leadership, accomplishments, and community endeavours, have demonstrated the high ideals to which Kin Canada founder Hal Rogers, was committed. This award may also be given posthumously where circumstances warrant.
