Program: Classification Talk
Our very own Mike Gula did a classification talk. He grew up in Derry, NH, graduated from Pinkerton Academy in 1990 and went on to Plymouth for a degree in Psychology and a minor in Pre-law.
He has spent 22 years working with Charles Schwab & Co.
He married his wife in 2004, has 2 kids who are now 14 and 16 (one boy, one girl).
He joined Rotary when his neighbor, John McCauley, invited/asked him to.
Mike gave us an exercise to do to illustrate his commitment to continued development and being a “work in progress.” You become the people you hang out with so hang out with people who have the characteristics you wish to gain.  Rotarians are positive, giving people. They fill you up and make you feel better.
Nice job, Mike!
