Judge Steven Leifman was honored on June 7 by the Rotary Club of Coral Gables as the club’s Martin Hughes Coral Gables Rotary Citizen of the Year. The presenta- tion was made at the club’s luncheon at the Country Club of Coral Gables.

At the event, former Coral Gables Rotary president Frank Sexton, along with Rotarian Pat Morris, Leifman’s long time friend, had the honor of addressing the crowd and helping Rotary president Deborah Swain and Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason present the award to the judge.

On accepting the award, Judge Leifman, a 12-year Gables resident, remarked that he had no idea when he became a judge that would also become a gatekeeper to “the largest psychiatric facility in the state of Florida,” the Miami- Dade Jail. That is a situation he has worked passionately and successfully to improve over the years
