Author : When the Men Were Gone


Marjorie Herrera Lewis

Trailblazer! That term apply describes the professional career and accomplishments of Marjorie Herrera Lewis. Four years after she began her long sports journalism career in the 1980s, she was hired on by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and assigned to cover college football, basketball and professional tennis. Five years later, Marjorie’s journalism career took her from the Star-Telegram to The Dallas Morning News. Along the way, she covered the Dallas Cowboys (NFL), Texas Rangers (MLB), Dallas Mavericks (NBA), the Super Bowl, Wimbledon, the U. S. Open, Davis Cup tennis as well as many other events.

Marjorie is author of When the Men Were Gone (Morrow/HarperCollins), a novel based on the true story of a woman who coached football in Brownwood, Texas during World War II. She is also co-editor of SportsDay Bound (second edition, Abilene Christian University Press, 2018), a collection of sports stories published by The Dallas Morning News.

She checked off one of her sports bucket list items when she answered an advertisement to be an assistant football coach. In 2017, Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth, Texas, brought back football for the first time since the 1941 season, and Marjorie was hired to assist with linebackers and defensive backs. She is was an extra set of coaching eyes from the press box on game days.

When she wasn’t attending 6 a.m. football practices, riding team buses on 10-hour football game road trips, or writing, Marjorie was teaching Media Ethics and Digital Media Writing classes at the University of North Texas, which she continues to serve in that capacity. She has also taught at The University of Tulsa, The University of Texas-Arlington, and the Dallas County Community College District.

Installation Banquet

The Richardson East Rotary Club installation banquet for the Rotary year 2019-2020 was a very special event last night. Karen Ellis, outgoing President, did a marvelous job in recognizing everybody for the incredible achievements during her tenure. Foremost the completion of the Ann Eisemann all-inclusive playground and the scholarships (total of $28,000) awarded to deserving RISD students.

Furthermore Richardson East Rotary Club was awarded with the "Rotary Club of the Year Award" in district 5810 presented in the honor of PDG Bill Nicol by the Rotary Club of Dallas!

As a testament to being a very active club, the Richardson East Rotary Club has grown with 12 new members during the year!!!

Incoming President Bill Alsup stated at his inauguration speech that he "will build on the momentum, to further grow our club and to do more good in the community and the world".

Please enjoy some pictures from the banquet in the photo album photoalbums/2019-2020-installation-banquet
