District 7600 RLI Sets a Record!

On Saturday February 19th, District 7600 held Rotary Leadership Institute at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA attracting 49 Rotarians. This is the largest attendance at an RLI event in the District’s history. RLI Regional Coordinator PDG Bob Stallworth and District Chair PDG Jim Probsdorfer arranged for excellent facilities and phenomenal facilitators; the student participants made it a day to remember!

RLI Level III Graduates: Front Row (L to R): Lottie Spruill-Webb (D7710), Richard Brinkley (D7600), Saundra Sasser-Imel (D7600), Derrick Thompson (D7710), Don Vaught (D7600). Back Row (L to R): PDG Bob Stallworth (D7600 – Regional Coordinator), Robert Guanci (D7600), Richard Flannery (D7600), Michael Jallo (D7600), Sam Parham (D7600), PDG Jim Probsdorfer (D7600 – District Chair)

Realizing that the graduates didn’t have a curtained backdrop, caps and gowns, and the other accoutrements of graduation, PDG Stallworth improvised with some special artwork and an exceptional team of photographers. One graduate stated there were more photographers at RLI than when he received his Bachelor’s degree! District 7600 is proud to have hosted and graduated two Rotarians from District 7710.

The event saw two participants with only eight months of Rotary service, including graduate Lottie Spruill-Webb. At lunch time, a beautiful cake celebrating Rotary’s 106th anniversary was served.

Faculty included PDG Jerry Fields, PDG Jim Pierce, PDG Bill Pollard, PDG Rocky Jacobs, PDG Don Johnson, PDG Jim Probsdorfer; and Rotarians Colleen Bonadonna and Tarek Monier; RLI Registrar Rick Stedman. Also assisting was District Governor Jayne Sullivan and photographer Bill Billings.

Enjoy a slideshow of pictures from the event.
