DISTRICT GOVERNOR – DR. SYLVIA WHITLOCK
Our Club is honored to welcome DR. WHITLOCK, who has been in Rotary for over 25 years. While principal in Duarte Unified School District, she was asked to join Rotary as the second woman to join the Duarte Club. That Club was removed as an official Rotary Club. Duarte sued Rotary International and prevailed in its stance to admit women, thus changing forever and for better the face of Rotary. She went on to become the first woman Rotary President and is now District 5330 Governor. We are inspired by her dedication to Rotary, and I and my fellow female Rotarians are honored to have the opportunity to be of service through Rotary. In that this is Rotary Awareness Month, Dr. Whitlock will surely inspire us to share WHO WE ARE as Rotarians and WHY WE ARE Rotarians.
