Well, the Astros didn't win, but DG Nick WAS a winner as he hummed the first pitch of the game over the plate  during our special Rotary night at the Astros.  Rotarians and guests had a terrific time at the exclusive reception and had a great view with the special Mezzanine location.
 

 
Rotary District 5890 Global Scholar Anja Nikolova completed exams for her first year at Yale University last week and will begin the second year of her scholarship in September. A condition of her Yale studies is that she must complete an internship between her two years of studies and she will return to the U.S. on June 7 from her family home in Skopje, Macedonia to begin work with the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition(CPLC) in Washington. CPLC is a World Bank and International Finance Corporation led intitiative focusing on climate change. Before returning to the U.S.  she will attend the Carbon Expo workshop in Cologne, Germany. District 5890 shares sponsorship of Anja's second scholarship year with Rotary Districts 5930 (Texas), 5840 (Texas), 5770 (Oklahoma), and 7980 (New Haven). Her first year Rotary Global Scholarship was funded by our District 5890.

Congratulations to Galleria Rotarians on their $5000 award for school uniforms to Houston’s Lee High School, which inspired Lee’s journalism students to showcase the Rotary commitment to education and literacy. Budding Lee journalists Juliette Acevedo and Augustin Cantero’s article was published by The River Oaks Examiner Newspaper, as well as in their high school paper, web site, and on Twitter, according to journalism instructor and yearbook advisor David Fanucchi. Noting that the new uniforms will feature Rotary's logo on the sleeve, the youthful literati wrote . . .

HOUSTON has been selected as the 2022 Rotary International convention city! TImagehis was a lengthy process that involved many people throughout our District, particularly PDG Rhonda Kennedy and her committee, and this selection could not have happened without their dedication to presenting Houston and District 5890 as the only choice for Rotary International. Over the next six years we will be planning a convention that shows Rotarians from around the world exactly why Houston was not only the right choice but the only choice for the best International Convention possible.
