      Every year, at the last meeting in June, the Rotary Club of Edmond installs a new board of directors. The Club’s By-laws provide the board has ten elected members: President, Immediate Past President, President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, Sergeant-at-Arms, and the Directors for Club Service, Community Service, International Service and Vocational Service.

     With two exceptions, the Club elected these officers and directors last December. The exceptions – the President and Past President – were elected one and two years earlier.

     The highlight of our special meeting this week is the passing of the President’s gavel. Gail Carr will become our new President.

     A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Gail owns Genesis Design, LLC, a full-service graphic design and marketing firm in Edmond. An active member of the Edmond community, she serves on the board of directors of the Fine Arts Institute, participates on the Chamber of Commerce Steering Committee for Leadership Edmond, and is a member of the marketing committee for A Chance to Change Foundation. She is a graduate of Leadership Edmond Class XX.

      Gail joined the Rotary Club of Edmond Central (one of the two predecessor clubs that merged a year later and kept the name of the other, the Rotary Club of Edmond) in 2004, and has been an active Rotarian ever since. A third generation Rotarian (her grandfather helped start Rotary in China), she knows what Rotary is all about. Fulfilling the Four-Way Test is a regular part of who she is. Those who know her well see in Gail someone who fully embraces and practices the Rotary Motto of Service Above Self. She brings to her new job a quiet, organized energy that will lead our Club to do great things over the next year.

      Gail and her husband, Ron, are active members of Henderson Hills Baptist Church, and have served in leadership capacities in several ministry areas over the past 20 years. They enjoy traveling and are the proud grandparents of identical twin boys, Luke and Blake.

      Please give a warm welcome to the new President of the Rotary Club of Edmond, Gail Carr.
