Piqua Rotary honors Tom Westfall


For the Miami Valley Today

PIQUA — The Piqua Rotary Club announced its final 2021 Piqua Rotary Club’s Pride of Workmanship Award recipient, Tom Westfall, in a press release saying: ”Mr. Rogers said that ‘anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me.’ Hero is a great word for Tom Westfall because Tom is truly a hero here in our community! Tom has done so much for the children here in Piqua.”

The theme of the Piqua Rotary Club Pride of Workmanship Award is “Do it Once, Do it Well — Build a Better Piqua!” This is a motto that Westfall has lived by throughout his life. Westfall is not just a gifted educator, but he is also a huge cheerleader and believer in the youth of the community. Westfall has been serving in public education for many years, and this past year, Westfall celebrated his 25th year, his Silver Anniversary, as a music educator.

Outside of Westfall’s role as a music educator in Piqua City Schools, Westfall has also given of his time and talent throughout the community to entertain, especially through his over 30 years of working with youth and bringing the community the Music Warehouse.

Westfall sets high standards, and those that work with Westfall are pushed to grow and are challenged to be the best that they can be. Piqua is a better place because of all that Westfall has given to the community, the Piqua Rotary Club said, especially to all the youth he has encouraged and believed in over the years.

Westfall was nominated by Piqua Rotarian Kazy Blocher Hinds for this award. The Piqua Rotary Club congratulates Westfall as one of the 2021 Piqua Rotary Club’s Pride of Workmanship Award recipients.
