President Elect Jim announced that we have two Iowa Board of Regents with us today; David Barker and Rtn. Bob Downer.
David Barker introduced program speaker: UNI, President Mark Nook. President Nook’s presentation was titled; Educating Iowans for Iowa.
President Nook expressed the “why” and the “purpose” behind each member of The University of Northern Iowa. The mission at UNI is to make a positive impact on lives, through education. To really make a difference. To help people realize their goals and make a vision come through, similar to the mission of Rotary.
President Nook described UNI’s impact back to Johnson County. Currently, of the 11,000 total students, 303 UNI students are from Johnson Co. with several alumni living and working in our public schools and the University of Iowa. President Nook shared some of the successes that UNI has achieved most recently:
  • UNI has supported almost 400 government entities and non-profits last year.
  • UNI Dance Marathon has raised $680,000 for the UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital in 2019. 
  • UNI athletic and academic successes were shared.
  • UNI is committed to effective stewardship and has a program to reduce student debt.
The meeting ended at 1:00 pm as President Elect Jim Conard led the assembly in reciting The Four Way Test.
The Club enjoyed singing America the Beautiful, led by Rtn. Bob Crane.
