Local Sheryl Christenson (far left) has recently been installed as a Rotary International District Governor, a first for Yuma since 2006. To the right of Christenson is John F. Germ, Rotary International President, Alongside him is his wife, Judy.

For the first time since 2006, Yuma is serving as host to a Rotary International District Governor after local Sheryl Christenson was selected for the position in a global network of volunteers working on overcoming humanitarian challenges.

Christenson assumed office on July 1 and is to serve until June 30, 2017. The new governor was selected after being nominated by her local club and after completing a three-year interview process, she said.

An installation ceremony was held for Christenson on June 25 at The Yuma Elks Lodge. In her new post, Christenson will be responsible for organizing new rotary clubs and strengthening existing ones.

Since a Yuman is now a Rotary District Governor, Yuma will also serve as a host to hundreds of Rotarians during the District Conference to be held in April of next year, Christenson said.

There are eight rotary clubs in the Yuma area including San Luis and Somerton, Christenson says, and her main goals as governor include growing clubs in the district and helping those in need.

According to the rotary release, area rotary clubs are involved in various local and international service activities.

As an example, the organization noted that the Rotary Club of Yuma was involved in coordinating and handing out school supplies to four schools in Mexicali, Mexico. All eight rotary clubs in Yuma County purchased and handed out dictionaries to each 3rd grade student.

“For many, it was their very first book,” the rotary stated.

As governor, Christenson herself will coordinate the community and international service projects of the clubs in District 5500, the Rotary news release showed. In total, District 5500 encompasses 53 clubs and spans from Yuma to New Mexico.

Christenson is among 535 Rotarians worldwide serving as a District Governor. For 26 years, Christenson has been a member of the Rotary Club of Yuma Sunrise and served as an assistant to past Yuma Rotary Governor, Anne Fisher, who served from 2005-2006.

“I am thrilled to serve in this capacity as district governor,” Christenson said. “I hope that I can really make a difference in the clubs and in the district.”
