Beth Russell, Ph.D. – President, 2017-18
Greetings from the Rotary Club of Saint Louis. It is my distinct privilege to serve as the 107th President of Club 11. It is humbling to know I have taken the mantel of leadership following in the footsteps of so many inspiring leaders who brought us to this moment.
I am equally grateful that my professional career is helping to drive a storied institution that celebrated its Centennial in 2015. Through my efforts at Webster University as Assistant Provost for Graduate Studies I understand the need to honor the past, work in the present, and plan for the future. It is this knowledge that motivates me to roll up my sleeves and work with my fellow club members to make a difference both locally and globally.
On behalf of my fellow Rotarians I invite you to attend one of our weekly meetings on Thursdays at noon at the downtown Missouri Athletic Club. Come celebrate our history and see what amazing things we are doing together as people of action looking to the future.
