Truman Middle School social studies teacher Lisa Marin recently was recognized by the Crestwood-Sunset Hills Kiwanis Foundation for her 20 years of membership and service to the club as sponsor of the Builders Club at Lindbergh’s middle schools.

During the Crestwood-Sunset Hills Kiwanis Club’s 50th anniversary celebration, Marin was recognized as a member of the Arnold W. Zimmerman Society, one of the highest honors a Kiwanis member can receive, according to a news release.

The Zimmerman Society was established by the Kiwanis Earl Collins Foundation to honor the service of Arnold Zimmerman, a founding member and past president of the Crestwood-Sunset Hills Kiwanis Club.

Zimmerman also served as governor of the Missouri-Arkansas District of Kiwanis International, and president and Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Earl Collins Foundation for many years.

The Kiwanis Club of Crestwood-Sunset Hills donated $1,000 on Marin’s behalf to the foundation, which awards scholarships to college-bound high school seniors throughout the Missouri-Arkansas District.
