Rotary District 5750 Governor
Jessica Sherrill is a Staff Attorney and Director of Unemployment for Oklahoma State School Boards Association where she has worked since 2008.  Jessica attended the University of Oklahoma (Bachelors of Arts in psychology - 2004) then went on to Oklahoma City University School of Law (Juris Doctor - December 2006).  She was sworn in as an attorney in April of 2007.
 
Jessica is a proud second-generation Rotarian; her late mother, Rebecca Walls, was a member of the Oklahoma City Northwest Rotary Club for nearly 21 years.  Jessica followed her mother’s footsteps into Rotary when Megan Law, Past District Governor, asked her to visit the newly-forming Midtown OKC Rotary Club. 
 
Shortly after having her son in 2009, Jessica transferred her Rotary membership to the Oklahoma City Northwest Rotary Club.  Jessica served as Membership Chair, Club Secretary, High School Rotarian Program Chair, Four Way Test Chair, Rotaract Chair, and President (2012-2013) and was selected as the club’s Rotarian of the Year (2011-2012).  During her President year, the club was recognized with a Silver level District Governor’s Citation award. 
 
On the district level, Jessica served first as a judge in the Four Way Test Speech contest, and then became the district chair of that speech contest before becoming the current District Membership Chair.  She is a Paul Harris Fellow +6 and was recognized by PDG Michelle Schaefer with Light of Rotary and Women in Rotary Awards.  Jessica is also a Rotary Leadership Institute graduate and facilitator.  Visiting Rotary clubs and meeting Rotarians became such a pleasure to Jessica that she developed a desire to return to the club that first got her started - Midtown OKC Rotary Club - which welcomed her back with open arms.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
 
These principles have been developed over the years to provide Rotarians with a strong, common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world.
 
OBJECT OF ROTARY
The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
 
THE FOUR-WAY TEST
The Four/Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
AVENUES OF SERVICE
We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.
  1. Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  2. Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.
  3. Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.
  4. International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects and seeking partners abroad.
  5. Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
