Jennifer Jones, Rotary International’s first female president, is the perfect leader to spread the word about the good Rotary does in the world, and inspire its members to keep going. At a training seminar for Rotary club presidents-elect at a Dallas-area hotel in February, sergeants-at-arms wearing yellow vests and Stetsons lead participants, grouped by Rotary district, into a small room for a photo op with 2022-23 Rotary International President Jennifer Jones. As the groups enter, the club leaders mob Jones — the room a flurry of handshakes, fist bumps, hugs, and the occasional squeal. For each photo, the Stetson-clad Rotarians (nicknamed "Rangers") give instructions on who should stand where, then Jones, who is seated front-row center, stands up, turns around, and warms up the crowd. "Is this the best district?" she asks one. She challenges a district to dance, busting a groove on the tan and gray patterned hotel carpet. Another, she teases, is the best looking. And then there's the "party" district, whose members give a raucous cheer. Read more, click here.

Steve has been a Rotarian for 35 years and he has served as President at Rotary 14. Steve is the Chairman of the Board and Founder of Executive Travel.

June 28, 2022, Rotary 14 Year-end Awards. Recently, President Christina Usher presented the highest honor bestowed to a new Rotarian, the Rookie of the Year Award, to Diane Mendenhall. Diane served as co-chair of the Program Committee which is tasked to identify and vet weekly speakers at Rotary. The weekly speaker is an essential part of our weekly meetings handled by the Program Committee. Coming out of the pandemic, it was important for members to have a conversation with community and business leaders. Diane played a critical role in ensuring we had the best speakers every week.
 
Diane Mendenhall works at the Lincoln Community Foundation in May of 2020 as Vice President for Gift Planning. In this role, Diane assists donors in developing a meaningful and strategic approach to help meet their present and future philanthropic goals, and in turn, help build a great city. Congratulations, Diane!
