   Eloy Nuñez
  District 6950 Governor 2018-19 

Dr. Eloy Nuñez is an associate professor in the Department of Public Safety Administration at Saint Leo University.  He teaches graduate-level leadership in criminal justice, and critical incident management, as well as Command Schools for various police and sheriffs’ agencies.  

Eloy has over 26 years of law enforcement leadership experience.  Most notably, as the lieutenant of the Emergency Operations Unit of the MiamiDade Police Department.  Eloy was one of the principal planners for security of two Super Bowls (1999 and 2007), the Free Area Trade of the Americas (FTAA) Conference in 2003, and the Presidential Debates of 2004.  In addition, Eloy has extensive experience in tactical leadership situations including bombings, hostage incidents, active shooting incidents, and counter-terrorism.  His long career also included stints in organized crime investigations, robbery and burglary suppression, and ten years of uniformed road patrol and field training.  

Eloy obtained his doctorate degree in Global Leadership from Lynn University in 2007.  His research interests focus on the unintended consequences of corporate social responsibility and how it pertains to anti-globalization protest groups that target specific corporations.  

Eloy is a member of the Rotary Club of Inverness since 2008 and has served as Club President and later as Assistant Governor.  He has been honored as Club Rotarian of the Year (2010); President of a Large Club of the Year (2012-13); Assistant Governor of the Year twice  (2013-14 and 2014-15); and has been recognized, along with the six clubs of Area 8, the prestigious Keith Kurber Area and Club Excellence (ACE) award (2015).  Eloy is a Paul Harris Society member.  

Eloy and his wife Maria currently live in Inverness, Florida, and are both members of the Rotary Club of Inverness.  They have two sons and three grandchildren, who live in the Tampa Bay area.   


 The next scheduled work date will be on February 25th. 
The gate will be open by 8 AM and we will have donuts available.  The day will end with a lunch. 
Please spread the word....this is a great opportunity for fun and fellowship.
Our Spring Rotary Reading Safari will begin Jan. 25 with 2nd and 3rd grade students from Idylwild and Terwilliger Elementary Schools.  The students will visit the Santa Fe Zoo on Wednesday afternoons for 6 consecutive Wednesday afternoons to enjoy activities and books related to the animals at the zoo. The sessions are organized and led by Santa Fe Zoo program students and the Alachua County Public Schools Partnership Program, but volunteers are needed to interact and read with the students in small groups.
If you and/or your spouse is interested in volunteering for one or more sessions, just click this link for details and dates:  www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090A45AFA728AB9-rotary5
