Proud Hokie Fans are Good Rotarians!

Not to start any regional sporting battles, but Virginia Tech Alums seem to make fine Rotarians according to PDG Bill Pollard in a recent Letter to the Editor for the Virginia Tech Alumni magazine. His comments are below:
"I enjoyed reading about the community service activities of students and alumni in the Spring 2009 Virginia Tech Magazine. As the 2008-09 governor of Rotary International (RI), District 7600 (central and southeastern Virginia), I have met many Hokies during my visits to Rotary clubs. I am not surprised to see so many Virginia Tech alumni as Rotary members because the Rotary motto, "Service Above Self," is similar to the Virginia Tech motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). Two distinguished Hokies who served on the Rotary International board include Bill Skelton (RI president 1983-84) and Bill Sergeant (RI vice president 1981-82). Through their service, Hokies and Rotarians are making dreams real for the less fortunate members of our communities."
