20 Rotarians Enjoy the Asheville RLI

A monsoon complete with heavy rain and unfriendly wind did not dampen the spirits of the 20 students who attended the April 16 Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) in Asheville, North Carolina at AB Tech. The weather washed away the RLI sign on the college campus and caused three of the students to drive around looking for the right building.

Another Rotary District 7670 function, Honor Air, brought 250 Rotarians and World War II veterans to the same location and time of the RLI session. The result was lots of good Rotary fellowship and extra treats to eat; however, about 10 Rotarians working as guardians for the Honor Air flight wanted to attend the RLI sessions but could not due to the conflict.

A stellar RLI faculty of Dr. Bert Strange, Billi Black, Alvin Lewis, Jim Harrington, Scott Mills, Rick Steadman, and RLI regional chair Karen Shore all received excellent evaluations from the students. District RLI Chair David Sink and District Secretary Margaret Chapman were facilities coordinators.

A graduation ceremony was held for the seven graduates of Part III. David Sink recognized the graduates and Karen Shore presented the certificates. Several of the graduates expresses interest in taking a graduate session and signing up for the faculty training. Above is a picture of the seven graduates of the April 16 Asheville RLI.
