Jean graduated with a degree in English and Journalism. She has three grown kids and now she spends her energy doing projects and service to benefit our local community. 
Mortgage Company owner and Bison Farmer, Michael Mitchell now adds member of the Wichita Falls Southwest Rotary Club to his list of commitments to his family and community. 
Do you need to know how to raise a BISON? If so, just ask one of our newest members, Michael Mitchell. Yes, it is true. He has a herd of Bison (Buffalo) on his ranch in Henrietta.   
Michael was raised in Henrietta and in 2005 he moved to Wichita Falls. He and his wife Jessica have three children.   
He owns Miracle Mortgage company which specializes in mortgage origination. Michael finds mortgages at the lowest interest rates available.   
Rotary District 5790 DG Dan Steele came to our club today. He spoke about the recent Vibrant Club workshop, the urgent need to do more to fight Polio, and about supporting the Rotary Foundation.
Our District Governor Dan Steele provided a graphic description of this years inspirational theme of Imagine Rotary and how the image represented members gathering together act to make their dreams become reality and they make the most of their club experiences. He shared with us the insights of Rotary International President Jennifer Jones as we work together to see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe in our communities and in ourselves.
Our Rotary Club has a long history of supporting the Rotary International 35 plus year initiative to End Polio worldwide. Because of generous members like ours the CDC reports that only two polio endemic countries remain, Afghanistan and Pakistan. 
During the past Rotary year of 2021-2022 our Rotary members exceeded our goal by 42% with $639 donated in support of End Polio Now.
The Southwest Wichita Falls Rotary Youth Leadership Awards recipients Andrea Granados,  Francisco Aleman, Estefany Urbieta and Natalie Perez shared their RYLA experiences with club members at our August 8th meeting.
To quote President Steve, "RYLA is an educational tool that Rotary uses to instill concepts of leadership in these students". They build communication skills, introduce problem solving techniques, public speaking and leadership strategies.
Estafany, Andrea, Natalie and Francesco gave us a great presentation. They were informative and had a powerful message to deliver us about RYLA and they did it in spades, thus filling us with awe over our RYLA recipients and the power of the RYLA experience.
