Rotary Club of Cordele tabs Herrington as president

Herrington succeeds Rebecca Stackhouse with the gavel

CORDELE, GA –  Amber Herrington was installed as the new president of the Rotary Club of Cordele at its first meeting of the 67th year of Rotary on July 14th at the Community Clubhouse.  She accepted the gavel following the successful term of outgoing President Rebecca Stackhouse.

In her acceptance speech, Herrington outlined her goals for the coming term. Her plan is to re-energize the Rotary Club of Cordele and “Serve to Change Lives” by mixing new ideas with service opportunities. As part of her strategy, she has appointed several new members to the Board of Directors and tasked them to develop and carry out new service initiatives, growth of membership to be more inclusive and diverse, to bring new ideas on how we can bring value to our community, and to see the youth at the high school level see the opportunity to develop leadership skills through community-based service projects.

Cordele Rotary Club members believe that we have a shared responsibility to act on our world’s most persistent issues. Rotary’s 7 Areas of Focus are Peace Building, Disease Prevention & Vaccination efforts, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene, Maternal & Child Health, Basic Education & Literacy, Community &Economic Development, and finally Environmental Protection & Sustainability.

Herrington reminds us all of the words of Rotary’s Founder, Paul Harris, “If you have the love of your fellow men in your hearts, my friends, you are a potential Rotarian.”
