Our new RYE Committee Chair has been a Boise Sunrise member since 2009 who has hosted four inbound exchange students with his wife Pam. District leadership is not new to him, as he served the last three years in the D5400 RYE Coordinator role. Additionally, his daughter Jessica went to Chile as a D5400 outbound in 2004-2005. An involved and passionate Rotarian, John brings a lot of experience to his new role.
"I am a proud Rotarian and greatly enjoy the various projects we support around town," says John. "I am thrilled and a bit intimidated to be taking on this new set of responsibilities but I know I have a strong committee to work with and I know that all of you have my back as well."
Beyond Rotary, John is also the new Chairman of the Board of Semilla Nueva; an NGO in Guatemala that many of us are familiar with. He loves to travel, garden and ski, and he plays trombone in the Boise Straight Ahead Big Band.
His first public show this year is on Aug. 17 at the Idaho Botanical Garden for the Great Garden Escape concert series, so you should attend and show support for our talented fellow! If you can't make it, he will also be playing at Lobsterfest on Sept. 8.
