 We are on track to end polio in 2018," announced Wayne Staton, District Chair for Polio Plus and he spoke at our club meeting last week. "Wayne Staton was born in the Lynchburg, Virginia area and lived there most of his life. He contracted polio when he was 8 months old. Polio left him with a weak right hip and leg. Mr. Staton graduated with honors with a degree in Physics from the University of Virginia. Currently, he is a Senior Technical Support Analyst at BMC Software. Here are some highlights of his Rotary experience: Past president of the Rotary Club of Sharpstown, 2Paul Harris FellowPaul Harris Society member, and Polio Plus Society member.
Mr. Staton is calling on Rotarians and the community to join the push to eradicate polio in 2018. From 2013 to 2018, every US dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication will instantly become three dollars, thanks to a 2-to-1 match by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Learn more about Rotary's efforts to end polio at
