Happy New Rotary Year!   I am honored and humbled to step into the big shoes of those of you who have graciously served before me.  Wayne, thank you for everything you have done for our club this past year.  Your hard work, dedication, and mentorship are inspirational.  I look forward to continuing to learn and grow as we embark on a new year.  I am so blessed to be surrounded by such a tremendous group of people and am grateful for all of you!  

Rotary International has appropriately chosen “Rotary Opens Opportunities” as our theme for 2020-2021.   In a time of great challenge as we face a pandemic and tensions within our communities, we also have opportunities to learn, grow, and serve.    I am proud to be part of the Shawnee Mission Rotary Club and look forward to a terrific year together!
