September 27th - Jim Whiddon

Return On Legacy


Jim WhiddonAs a father of four millennials, Jim Whiddon felt compelled to invest in something of greater value than money: social capital – the “how to” of life. By putting stock into developing communication skills, leadership qualities, and most of all – wisdom: parents can leave a legacy to their kids and their grandkids that equips them to lead a balanced life of success and significance. This inspiring speech speaks to the heart of every citizen who wants to be a part of something greater than themselves. Leaving financial capital to family or charitable causes is important. But the real difference comes when passing down values and the "social capital" your children and grandchildren will need to earn their own success. It's moving from simply Return on Investments (ROI) to a Return on Legacy (ROL).

Rotary Stories of Success
Greenville Noon Rotary was delighted to hear from the latest RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) participants during our August 9th meeting!
Computer LabThe Rotary District 5810 had a successful International Project visit to CAM Laboral (Centro De Attencion Multiple). This is a school for children ages 12-18 (some older because they are allowed to stay) who have multiple attention or sensory problems, like blindness, deafness, autism, and many other issues.  We made our first stop here to see the work of the International Grant between the Greenville, Tx Rotary Club and the Cozumel Rotary Club, phase II of the completion of the Computer Lab.
