April Malik is the Executive Director of Minneluzahan Senior Center and owner of Thai To Go.  She has been in Rapid City for 21 years. April assisted our Club with the Children's Home Society fundraising efforts during the pandemic, which we are so thankful.  Her experience working with our energetic Club was why she joined Rotary and she looks forward to networking opportunities.   She is a mother to 5 daughters, the reason that she started the Thai To Go business in 2010.  April recently returned from getting three of her daughters settled into college in New York City, Minnesota and California.  When she's not working, cooking, or spending time with her daughters, she enjoys walking and beekeeping.  A sign in her office tells it all:  "No Job is More Important than Your Family." 
Rene Sorenson was born and raised in Anchorage, AK and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and minor degrees in Economics and Communication Arts. Her work experience includes positions with Microsoft (Recruiting Assistant), FDIC, and State Farm (claims adjuster). Rene and her husband Clark returned to Rapid City in 2021 (Clark’s hometown) after he retired from a civil engineering career in the oil and gas industry.  They have a beautiful blended family of five adult children and four grandchildren.  Rene was a member of the Russian Jack Rotary Club and served on fundraising committees for the Anchorage Symphony Pops Concert, Anchorage Museum and Catholic Social Services charity balls.  She and Clark enjoy hiking, golf, biking, pickleball, camping and spending time with family and friends.
Stacy Johnson spent her early years on their family ranch in Northeastern Wyoming.  She is a new citizen of Rapid city, moving here in January 2021.   She holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Finance from the University of Wyoming and built a career of financial advisory in Casper for 18 years.  Between college and financial advisory, she spent 10 years with two statewide non-profit organizations. This experience sealed her love for serving people including youth ministry, cooking, teaching, mentoring, playing and singing. She served as a child advocate with CASA, and served in an advisory role in statewide church leadership, a local credit union, and Casper’s planning and zoning committee.  Her hobbies include riding motorcycle (which introduced her to the Black Hills), knitting, reading, and hiking.  Stacy served alongside her former husband in the Casper Rotary Club for many years. She is inspired by our club’s involvement with youth through Story Book Island and the Children’s Home Society and the many community action projects.
