Jerry Sterner Is Named 8th Lincoln Heritage Award Winner By The Conservative Club Of East Pasco

The Conservative Club of East Pasco has named Jerry Sterner as the 8th receipient of the Lincoln Heritage Award at a dinner held at Bentley Commons in Zephyrhills on Friday, March 4th. Jerry was the Director of Marketing & Public Relations, Volunteer Services and Physician Recruitment for 20 years at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, formerly East Pasco Medical Center. Dick Albrecht, President of the club welcomed all those in attendance with Mayor Cliff McDuffie recognizing dignitaries and special guests. The Zephyrhills JROTC presented the colors with Megan Mohler singing the National Anthem. Several presentations were made to Jerry including a Congressional Proclamation presented by newly elected Congressman Rich Nugent, a State of Florida Resolution from Will Weatherford’s office presented by Seth Weightman, who also read a letter from Gov Rick Scott and the 2011 Sheriff’s award presented by Pasco County Sheriff Bob White. I had the honor of presentating Jerry with the 2011 Lincoln Heritage Award medallion. Wanda Stevens presented Joe Worrell with the 2011 Club Service award. Jerry has worked with many local organizations including Sunrise of Pasco, Rotary Club of Zephyrhills, Chamber’s of Commerce in Zephyrhills, Dade City and Wesley Chapel, Habitat for Humanity, Pasco Economic Development Council, San Antonio Boys Village and the Conservative Club of East Pasco. These are just a fraction of the organizations that he worked with. I have known Jerry for over 20 years and I am a better person because of it. His kind, considerate and caring ways have been noticed not just by myself but by the many, many people he has come in contact with over his lifetime. Best of luck now and in the future to you and your wonderful family. Congratulations again on receiving the 2011 Lincoln Heritage Award my friend, Jerry L. Sterner!

  1. Greg, thank you so much for documenting the wonderful event by the East Pasco Conservative Club when Jerry was award the prestigious Lincoln Heritage Award. I wish I could have been, but I sure have enjoyed seeing the pictures and all the momentos of the event. And it has been fun sharing them with our children. Thank you for all that you did and are doing not only to make this event so special, but also for making the City of Zephyrhills a very special place to live and raise a family. May God bless you and your wonderful family. Martha Sterner
