Climbing Mount Everest

Doug Pierson may very well be the only William and Mary alumnus who has reached the peak of Mount Everest. The endurance, strength and lung capacity necessary to accomplish the feat are bestowed on a select few and, in fact, only around 3,000 people have actually summited. Pierson now has a story that his children will pass on to their children -- an unforgettable experience climbing the tallest mountain on this earth. 

On March 29, 2008, Pierson began his journey in Kathmandu, Nepal, reaching the summit on May 21 at 6:40 a.m. It took the team another six days to climb back down to Base Camp and return to Kathmandu.

District Governor Welcome

Please come help us welcome our new District Governor Sheila Brennan!

Sheila Brennan is a past-president of Vienna Rotary Club and has served as Assistant Governor – Area 11 (Northwest Fairfax County). Sheila is married to another past president of Vienna Rotary Club, Matt Brennan, Esquire. Current Vienna president, James Cudney, called Sheila, “the backbone” of the club. A little bit about Sheila’s background: She is the oldest of ten siblings who grew up in the Chicago area. She has had a distinguished 40 year career in the federal government primarily with the DOD and DEA. She was a GS-15 up until her retirement (the equivalent of a full Colonel or Navy Captain). She was the lowest graded civilian employee in the Defense Logistics Agency to ever receive the DLA Civilian Employee of the Year. First time it was ever awarded to an employee at the GS-7 level. She received more than 30 outstanding performance ratings over her years of service. Most importantly, Sheila embodies the true spirit of being a Rotarian, Service above Self. She has been an amazing teammate at the district level, has shown creativity, positive energy, and leadership!
