Recommendation for a Great Club Speaker

Dr. Tracy Fitzsimmons, President of Shenandoah College, earned an unusual standing ovation February 2 with her compelling speech to the Rotary Club of Salem. She attributed her transformative education leadership style to her experience as a Rotary scholar in Chile. She was there during the year that Chile was transitioning from a dictatorship to a democracy, when the far right and the far left were much further apart than they are in the U.S. today. At Shenandoah College she wants to “make sure that all voices are at the table. We sent a bus to the Inauguration.  We sent a bus to the March.”
