Mentoring Rotary Clubs to help them become Bigger, Better and Bolder is one of Steve’s passions. 
Past District Governor Steve Lewis joined Rotary in 1995 and served as Club President of his then 115 member Carson City, Nevada club in 1999-2000.  His club was later recognized that year as the District’s Club of the Year in May 2000!
He began serving District 5190 in July of 2001 as an Assistant Governor through June 2004.  The following four years he served on the District’s Foundation Committee, Chairing the Permanent Fund/Major Donor sub-committee where he helped lead the way in raising more than $2.8M in new Bequest Society pledges!
Steve served District 5190 as Governor in 2010-2011 under then RI President Ray Klinginsmith and our International Theme of Building Communities ~ Bridging Continents.  Currently, he’s chairing District 5190’s Rotary Foundation Committee, a three year commitment that will expire on June 30th of this year.
Steve continues to remain active in various leadership roles on both the Rotary Zone Institute and Far West PETS committees.  He’s also a multi-year PETS instructor.  Additionally, he’s previously served as an RI President’s representative and was recently appointed to serve D-5190 as their 2016 ‘COL’ alternate representative.
Steve is a multi Paul Harris Fellow and a charter member of District 5190's Paul Harris Society.  He and his wife Ginny are both Major Donors and members of our Foundation’s Bequest Society.  In May 2014, Steve was truly humbled when he received The Rotary Foundation’s Citation for Meritorious Service, in recognition of his ongoing commitment to encourage fellow Rotarians to Make Dreams Real through the various educational and humanitarian programs of our Foundation, which he fondly calls our legacy of hope!
