Rotary Club of Southlake

Posted by Marjorie Lewis on Jun 21, 2019
Under the auspices of the 2019-20 Rotary International’s presidential theme, “Rotary Connects the World,” the Southlake Rotary Club initiated selection and recognition each quarter our of our "Rotarian of the Quarter" Club Advocate. With the theme of ‘connection’ to our communities and helping those in need” at the heart of each Rotarian’s service commitment, the Board of the Southlake Rotary has chosen Lisa McBee, inducted into our Club on January 16, 2018, as our third quarter “Rotarian of the Quarter.”
 
 
Lisa McBee, a Southlake attorney, not only exemplifies the values of Rotary in her work specializing in immigration law but in her role as a member of Rotary International. As a member of the Southlake Rotary Club, Lisa has volunteered her time and resources through her participation in our Club’s service projects, including:
 
  • DPS (Department of Public Safety) Appreciation Day/Officer of the Year Award;
  • Scholarships for the children of Southlake DPS police officers and firefighters;
  • Quarterly Trash Pick Up for the City of Southlake’s ‘Adopt a Street Program’;
  • GRACE Christmas Cottage Toy Drive & GRACE Pantry food drives;
  • Providing resources & support to the Community Storehouse & Metroport Meals on Wheels;
  • Delivering winter garments to area Homeless Shelters; and
  • Sponsorship of a Rotary International foreign exchange student;  and
  • Sponsorship of a dental clinic in Costa Rica
While Lisa has volunteered for these worthy causes and for many more, she is being recognized as our Club’s “Rotarian of the Quarter” for the personal touch she brings to Rotary. A birthday or an anniversary will never go unrecognized by Lisa, who sends out handwritten cards to every Southlake Rotary member to commemorate the milestone events.“I like to show my appreciation,” Lisa said. “It’s also a reflection of my love of language.”
 
She also sends out handwritten thank-you notes to guest speakers. Acknowledging that the handwritten notes is, unfortunately, a dying art, Lisa prefers to keep that personal form of communication alive. In addition, however, Lisa also utilizes her 21st century communication skills by updating the Southlake chapter's website.“I like showcasing people who are important to the club,” she said. 
 
It is not only within Rotary that Lisa exemplifies the values of Rotary, including service above self, fellowship, leadership, and passion for diversity and understanding. She lives these values in her professional life as an attorney with a primary focus on employment-based immigration law, with an emphasis on H-1B non-immigrant visas. Lisa enjoys the opportunity to work with diverse clients throughout the world and collaborating with human resources personnel to develop innovative immigration solutions for meeting emerging hiring needs.
 
Lisa has been an attorney for 13 years, most recently with the Law Office of Dana L. White, PLLC. Lisa joined her sister, fellow Southlake Rotarian Dana, in Dana’s Southlake office when Lisa moved back to Texas after several decades in Kansas and Missouri.  A native of Texas, Lisa was born in Azle and raised in Corpus Christi. She has a Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Kansas and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She is a member of White’s Chapel United Methodist Church and became a member of Rotary shortly after moving to Southlake in December 2017.
 
Reflecting on Rotary’s big picture, Lisa said she appreciates the work Rotary does for the world. “I enjoy doing it while working with like-minded people,” she said. As for the smaller scale, what Lisa also enjoys about Rotary is, “Coming together for our group lunches, the camaraderie and for the people who can be so funny.”
 
Please join us in congratulating Lisa on her recognition as our “Rotarian of the Quarter” for the 3rd Quarter of 2019! #wearerotary #peopleofaction #rotaryconnectstheworld
