Bill Tucker awarded Rotarian Of The Year

The Rotary Club of Aiken recently named attorney Bill Tucker the Scott B. Hunter Rotarian of the Year. The award was made by John Lindsay, the 2019-20 club president.

For nearly 20 years, Tucker provided a brief – and often humorous – news summary to the organization during its weekly meetings. Tucker was the Rotary Club’s 1993-94 president and is a senior partner in the Aiken office of Hull Barrett.

The honor was “unexpected and undeserved, but thank you very much,” Tucker said.  Lindsay thanked Tucker for his advice and counsel to other Rotary Club presidents and his ability to provide information to the club while adding “a touch of humor, often when it was needed.”

“Bill Tucker actually has been a Rotarian of the Year for our club and for this community for a long time,” Lindsay said. “He has contributed in so many ways to organizations in the community that conform to the Rotary motto of ‘Service Above Self.’”

The Scott B. Hunter Rotarian of the Year award is named in memory of the former Aiken Standard publisher and Rotary Club of Aiken past president. Hunter died in 2018 at the age of 69.

Tucker practices in the areas of estate planning, probate, real estate, and business/corporate law and has extensive experience on wealth transfer issues for individuals and owners of closely held businesses, the administration of decedents’ estates, and residential and commercial real estate transactions and small business transfers. Tucker is admitted to practice before the Federal and state courts of South Carolina.

  • Aiken County Junior Achievement, past board member
