In addition to raising money for kids, the Sparks Rotary has various youth programs to help give kids memorable experiences outside the classroom. The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards and Rotary Business Academy challenges students to think strategically and help them develop their leadership skills. Sparks Rotarians also finance two students each year to go abroad for the Rotary Youth Exchange program.
Bob Lord, the Immediate Past President of Rotary Club of Sparks and owner of The Electric Company of Reno, says, “Sparks Rotarians are business professionals who are focused on giving back, regardless of the economy. My employees at The Electric Company and I enjoy how Rotary gives us the opportunity to positively impact the kids in our area. ”
Lord helped to recruit volunteers for the event. Next up for the Sparks Rotary is the “Best in the West” Nugget Rib Cook-Off in September. Members will be volunteering at the annual event.
