Grad named to lead local Rotary

Volunteering on projects to help those less fortunate really make him realize how fortunate he is, says Chris Woodrow. The UWindsor communications grad (BA 1981) will serve as president of the Rotary Club of Windsor-St. Clair for the 2012-13 year.

A Rotarian since 2007, Woodrow has been actively involved in many facets of club operations, notably the TV Auction Committee where he served as chair for two successful years, the club public relations committee, RELAY and many other club activities. The club named him its Rotarian of the year in 2009.

“Being a member of the Windsor St. Clair Rotary Club allows me to play a small role in giving back to the Windsor-Essex community and indeed to communities around the world,” he says.

Currently working as acting chief executive officer of the Windsor Public Library, he previously worked for local school boards and in the University of Windsor’s public affairs department.
