Rotary means different things to different people. For some, it means friendship and fellowship with like-minded people. For others, it means an opportunity to develop leadership and business skills. For some, it’s a way to solve a problem in a local community.
For Walter Hughes, Jr., Rotary seems to be the vehicle by which he is able to change the world. He is, in fact, the epitome of a “champion of change.” It’s no accident that he was given that exact recognition by the White House in 2013.
Over the past ten years, Walter and his teams of Rotary (and non-Rotary) volunteers have helped provide clean water to more than 300,000 people in Africa.
