Henry P. Iba Citizen Athlete Awards

The Rotary Club of Tulsa created the Henry P. Iba Citizen Athlete Awards in 1993. It annually recognizes an influential male and female athlete for their success in their sport and more importantly, for being positive role models who give back to their communities. Not simply by donating to worthy causes, but by being personally dedicated and involved in their chosen charities. The awards are named after Henry P. Iba who was an unparalleled success as a coach, a leader and a citizen. Recipients are selected by the Iba Awards committee and are announced prior to the Iba Awards, which is a festive event held in June in Tulsa, OK. Each recipient receives a trophy and partner charities benefit from the night's proceeds from as well as the Rotary Club of Tulsa Foundation.

When terror struck the heartland, just 90 minutes away, we all stood united as Oklahomans. One day after the Murrah Building bombing, the Rotary Club of Tulsa provided a $50,000 grant from the proceeds of that year’s Iba Awards, which was then duplicated by others in Tulsa. Within another day, $100,000 was provided to our colleagues at the OKC Downtown Rotary Club 29 to use wherever they saw the need was most urgent to help our fellow Oklahomans.

Over the years, particularly at our club’s Celebrate! Centennial Banquet in 2015, the OKC Club has recognized this gift as a welcome symbol of Rotary friendship at a time when their club and the entire city was shaken.
