Message from the President
The Union City Rotary Club consists of more than 150 business leaders and professionals. The club is an organization that believes that service is a basis of worthy enterprise. Rotary has benefited our community since 1936.
The Union City Rotary Club takes great pride in our contributions and support of many service projects. Some of these projects include Rotary Scholarships where approximately $300,000 in scholarships are awarded to area students annually, the Promethean Project where at risk pre-school children are given scholarships to pre-schools that follow a character building curriculum.
Our Rotary Youth Travel Program is the only one of its kind. Eight deserving high school students are chosen to travel for three weeks in Europe with two chaperones and all expenses are paid by the club. The students come back with a new appreciation and world view. We also provide a second trip for eight students to spend ten days travelling to Washington D.C. and believe this is a worthy endeavor and that the students obtain a new sense of understanding of our nation’s history, government, and freedoms.
There are many more projects such as Reading Railroad, Obion County Distinguished Speakers Foundation, Discovery Park of America (Rotary Pavilion), and Rotary Relays. Each project we believe makes our community a better place to live and gives our youth more opportunities. The members of the Union City Rotary Club continue to actively practice the motto Service Above Self which has defined our clubs purpose for almost 80 years.
It is truly an honor to be a member of the Union City Rotary Club as well as serving as your President.
President 2016 - 2017
