We're pleased to have Jeffco Deputy Sheriff, Brad Herman, Jr. join us to present a new program for business owners and leaders called the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Business Academy.

Brad tells us, "I am a Colorado native, married for 21 years with two children, one in college, the other in high school.  I grew up in southwest Denver/Jefferson County, graduating from John F Kennedy high school, and attended the Colorado School of Mines.

I have been a Deputy Sheriff with the Sheriff’s Office for 10 years, spending 5 years in Detentions, 5 years in Patrol, and recently in Public Affairs/Crime Prevention.

Our 1st Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Business Academy was held in October.  The academy offered business leaders and owners proactive information concerning theft, fraud, active shooters, and site security assessments, all at no charge."

Jim Rohrer, our District Visioning Chair, has developed a program to help clubs identify their strengths and areas where improvement is possible. Growing Stronger Together gives club members an opportunity to complete an anonymous four question survey to see what aspects of the club the members consider to be strengths or non-strengths.

The idea is to utilize the results of the survey as a logical starting point for some new club initiatives. Jim presented the program and survey to Carbon Valley Rotary in September – the club had a 92% participation rate. Sixty-five percent of the members said they joined Rotary as an opportunity for service, and while the club does focus a majority of efforts on community service, many survey comments noted a lack of true community impact. Club President Beverly Mendel stated “the survey results were a real “eye-opener” and members and the board have already had several brainstorming sessions including the possibility of varying meeting times and surveying the three towns about community needs.”

My name is Alexa Nofsinger. I recently graduated from Western State Colorado University with a double Bachelors degree in Business and Psychology. I am getting my graduate certification in Multi Media Journalism and then want to get my Masters in marketing and eventually work for a travel/adventure magazine. In my free time I love to explore the mountains with my dog either by foot or by jeep, practice photography, spend time at the gym, and write on my blog.

 

I've been to 13 countries in the last five years. I travel because I am curious to see what kinds of landscapes, cultures, foods, and people are all over the world. My last trip was to Peru with a Utah based company called CHOICE. I chose to venture with CHOICE not only because it gave me an opportunity to experience another beautiful country, but also because I wanted my next trip after studying abroad to be for someone else and not for myself.

Abbas Rajabi, an American by choice, grew up in Hamadan, Iran in a large family. His passion for education brought him to the United States where he pursued a degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas in Arlington. After working at several large companies, Abbas decided that his entrepreneurial spirit was too strong to deny. He began several small businesses in Texas, South Carolina and then Colorado while also building a family. Most recently, he is the founder and president of Mohegan Capital, a private real estate investment fund specializing in value-add and income producing industrial real estate.

Abbas is a very proud Denver Southeast Rotarian; he believes Rotary is the most prestigious Service, Philanthropic and Networking organization ever. Abbas has a great passion for service. As tragedies erupted around the world, he channeled the power of his Rotary family to help those in need. His passion for education inspired him to create “Pencils for Peace” - a program that gave school supplies to Afghan children. Abbas along with his Rotary friends were involved in remodeling numerous orphanages in Mexico as well as the coordination and execution of a trip to Thailand to help victims of the 2004 Tsunami. After the 9/11 attacks in 2001, Abbas arranged a fundraiser to benefit the brave NYFD firefighters and took a check to the New York City Rotary club. At the height of the housing crisis in the United States, Abbas coordinated the efforts of Rotarians and volunteers to help families in Denver’s east Colfax area motels buy much needed food and gifts during the holiday season. When Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy and the tornados in Joplin, Missouri happened, Abbas was quick to organize his club and the Rotary District  to help those in need. Most recently Abbas served on the District’s Flood Relief Committee, fundraising for victims of the 2013 Boulder flood. In 2002-2003 he was named District 5450’s Rotarian of the Year, and remains a committed Rotarian after more than 25 years.

Abbas is married to Sami Rajabi who he met in Iran while in high school. Their first big adventure together was when Sami joined Abbas in the United States over 44 years ago. She is involved in their businesses, and uses her financial acumen and passion to help ensure a successful family business.

Sami and Abbas are proud of their four very accomplished children; a journalist and mother, a lawyer and volunteer firefighter, a physician at Harvard, and a post-doctoral fellow at U of Penn Annenberg School.  All of the Rajabi's children are also Paul Harris Fellows. They have two grandchildren who bring them great joy. Aside from time with family, Abbas and Sami love spending what time they may have dreaming about  traveling, reading, boating, watching films, grilling on the back deck and hosting their friends for fun, food, and fellowship!

Ben Franklin challenged us that we will have a republic only if we can keep it. But this great nation will be unable to heed his words if our citizens are not proactive in educating others—especially fifth graders learning about government for the first time.

When Andy McKean founded the Liberty Day Institute in 1996, he never anticipated the things we would accomplish. Because of years of hard work and dedication exerted by countless individuals and our many partners, hundreds of thousands of kids have received copies of the the Liberty Day Institute booklets containing the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

Many of these youngsters have learned directly from national and community leaders, parents, teachers, college students, and so many others just what it means to be an American. the Liberty Day Institute has strived to educate tomorrow’s leaders exactly why it is that our nation’s founding documents are so important—and why it is so essential that we preserve them and the freedoms they entail.
