Member Spotlight

The Rotary Club of Naples-Collier would like to recognize:


William Kocses > a member since 2001

William was awarded the Southwest Florida BSA Council's highest honor, the Silver Beaver Award (Class of 2014) this past March at the Alligator District Awards Dinner. For more information you can go to web links tab, Boy Scouts of America, then Silver Beaver Award link this gives you a full history of the award.


William is the COR ( chartered organisation representitive) for our club. And has worked with the Scout charter partners since 2006. We currently charter Troop 951 (2006) Pack 951 (2012) and Crew 2564 (2013). He also works with the district executive, James Giles to promote scouting in Collier county, by working on the Alligator District Committee, as a Unit Commissioner, the United Way (Walk for the Way) and many other programs throughout the year. As a Rotarian, working to build a relationship with scouting and our club has been a top priority as a member, keeping him very active. This relationship has become a strong community outreach for the Naples-Collier Rotary Club and has benefitted both organizations over the years.
