Michelle Jacobson - Past President
Michelle first fell in love with Rotary when she went abroad to live in Nicaragua and saw the work of Rotary first-hand. Since her return, she got involved in a local club. She has been on a few Rotary delegations to Nicaragua and plans to do more international travel within Rotary, including the Friendship Exchange. She has also attended an international Rotary conference and has seen the work that Rotary does globally. It is truly inspiring. Besides the international peacemaking, she enjoys the local service projects that Rotary is involved in. She values that Rotary gives back to the community in so many ways, through grants, projects, and scholarships for students. Every meeting she enjoys learning about the local businesses and non-profits that are invited to speak at the club. By trade, she is a teacher of international students (ESL), preparing them for life in the community and for college. She finds that her professional life intersects with Rotary's mission of promoting international goodwill. She hopes that everyone finds their place in the community in some way and invites anyone interested in Rotary/Rotaract to find us on Facebook and check out a meeting!
