On June 26, Rotarians and family members gathered to recognize Walter Ingalls as he retired from Rotary International after 53 years.  Walter served our club in many roles, most notably as club president and our youth exchange officer.  As the instigator of our successful youth exchange program, Walt is responsible for generations of international friendship among Greenville families and students and the wider world.  He is truly an inspiration and a peacemaker!
