The Rotary Club of Pasadena announced on Monday that Rev. Canon William (Bill) Lane Doulos and Charmayne Mills Ealy are the recipients of its 2024 Paul Harris Fellow Community Awards, one of the highest honors that Rotary can bestow upon an individual.

The award recognizes recipients who exemplify Rotary’s highest ideals, including the organization’s motto “Service Above Self” and its “Four-Way Test,” which emphasizes truth, fairness, goodwill, and benefit to all concerned. It also includes a $1,000 donation in each recipient’s name to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, which supports the organization’s worldwide programs.

Doulos began his ministry among the poor and homeless in 1974 as the executive director of Union Station, a Pasadena storefront hospitality center founded by clergy and volunteers from All Saints Church. He later served as director of Housing Ministry at Church of Our Saviour in San Gabriel and its Jubilee Transitional Housing sober-living homes for people in recovery from addiction.

In 2002, Doulos donated his financial interest in four sober-living homes to the Church of Our Saviour, forming the core of the ministry of Jubilee Homes, which now provides housing and social services to 50 men and women in recovery in Pasadena and Altadena. Ordained a vocational deacon by the Diocese of Los Angeles in 2014, Doulos is the author of several books on spirituality and social justice.

Mills Ealy, currently the Director of Operations for STEAMCODERS, a nonprofit organization that teaches underserved students the fundamentals of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM), has been committed to elevating the quality of life and well-being for underserved people, particularly youth, in the community. STEAMCODERS has served over 70,000 students in the Greater Los Angeles Area, the San Gabriel Valley, and beyond since its inception in 2014.

A former Assistant United States Trustee for the Central District of California, Mills Ealy has extensive Board service, currently serving on the Pasadena City College Foundation, Pasadena Altadena Community Endowment Fund, Pasadena Delta Foundation, the Pasadena Child Health Foundation, and the California African American Museum.

The Rotary Club of Pasadena, with over 190 members, is the oldest and largest Rotary Club in Rotary District 5300. Its members contribute to the well-being and growth of the community, region, and world through various committees and service projects.
