The award is the highest recognition given by the Lions International president and is in honor of dedicated humanitarian service. Along with the award comes a $1,000 donation made in the recipient's name to a fund to provide relief around the world for people in need because of catastrophic events and to hospitals that help with eye disease.

Sparkman also received a 10-year Chevron pin along with a plaque and pin with his Melvin Jones Fellowship honor. Club member Terri Halliwell, zone chairperson from Jamestown, was presented a framed Lion print for her service representing the zone clubs in Lions District 43-C.
