Welcome to the 2021-2022 Rotary year!
This is undoubtedly the pinnacle of my many years of service to Rotary to be representing you as District Governor. I have been on a two-year, six-month journey to get prepared for this amazing year of my life. I am delighted and honored to be given the opportunity to serve as your District Governor for the Rotary year 2021-2022.
I am so blessed to have such a great District Leadership Council, 14 Assistant Governors, DGE Janice Fulkerson and DGN Marie Baker as we serve together this year. We are all unified to be servant leaders for our District members.
Congratulations and best wishes to our new Club Presidents as they take on the leadership of their Clubs. I am confident they will have a busy and rewarding year. At every stage in our lives, Rotary has something for each of us. From the moment we became Rotarians, the work of Rotary service was open to us – and it became our obligation to choose how to best serve.
Rotary has been a place for visionaries, those who see how this could be and define a path towards making their dreams a reality. TAKE RISKS. By acting with integrity in our Rotary service, we exhibit a bountiful heart which underscores our commitment to making our world a better than ever before.
The more Rotarians engage in service, the more we all realize what we can achieve, and our potential knows no limits. I wish you a fulfilling year to "Navigate Rotary" as we "Serve to Change Lives”.

District Governor
