Hero of the week

Liesel Schopler

Member Since: 2012

1.  I joined Rotary because giving back to my community is important to me. A sense of civic duty is a value instilled from my parents - my father was a lifelong Rotarian and served as president of his local chapter when I was a child, while my mom served as an active member in the Junior League during my youth.

2. As just one example of when the impact of Rotary rang clear to me is when we had the local police speak at our meeting, and we were able to gift the police a community van following the speaker’s request for one. Seeing the van recently parked outside during one of our meetings made me feel proud and amazed to be part of a proactive group that is able to quickly jump to action to selflessly serve the needs our local community.

3. I remain a member of Rotary for the same reason that I joined - to serve my local community. An added bonus is enjoying the camaraderie of my fabulous fellow Rotarians.
