Dr. Chad Jones gave his member moment today. He is a long time teacher and current superintendent at Decatur ISD. . He is married with 3 daughters. He is a first generation college graduate. He loves helping others.
Gene Wilson gave a Rotary moment today. He stated that at his first rotary event he helped feed EVERYONE: participants, families, and guests and then was asked to umpire a game. That experience led him to join. That Service Above Self was all it took. 
Ron Barnes with Feeding Wise Kids was our speaker today. This 501C3 was formed because of a need a teacher highlighted at church. There were kids at school that had no food over the weekend. The need has grown and the organization now provides weekend meals for over 600 youth all over Wise County. They work with schools to identify those in need. There are no paid employees and administrative costs  are covered by donations specifically designated for that purpose. For more information go to feedingwisekids.org
