Midlothian Rotary to Honor the Late Major Charles A. Ransom
Parents of fallen Air Force Major to receive high rotary honor in memory of their son, Charles A. Ransom, who died in Afghanistan earlier this year.
“After all that Major Ransom did to serve the Midlothian community and this country, honoring him with the Paul Harris Fellowship really is the least we can do,” said Midlothian Rotary President Chandler Williams. “Major Ransom was the epitome of what Rotary stands for, and it is with humility that Midlothian Rotary Club honors him.”
Mr. and Mrs. Willie Ransom, mother and father of the late Major Charles A. Ransom, will be accepting the Paul Harris Fellowship on behalf of their son.
The theme of Rotary is “Service Above Self,” making the Midlothian-native Major Charles A. Ransom an exemplary choice for the Paul Harris Fellowship. Ransom was an honor student at Midlothian High School and served as captain of both the Midlothian football and baseball teams. After high school, Ransom attended Virginia Military Institute where he was elected Vice-President of his class and graduated in 2001 as a Computer Science major. After leaving VMI, Ransom was commissioned as a U.S. Air Force officer where he had a distinguished career and was selected for the rank of Major in his tenth year of service before his 32nd birthday.
