Nominations for District Governor for 2026-27 are now being accepted.
From year to year, the District Governor leads and supports our clubs by inspiring and motivating them to have a life-changing impact in their communities and in the world.  Clubs are encouraged to propose candidates who can provide this kind of leadership and who meet the qualifications to serve in this capacity.  Among the requirements is that at the time of taking office, the Nominee must have been a past president of a club, completed seven or more years of membership in one or more clubs, and have attended the Governors-Elect Training Seminar and the International Assembly.
If you feel that your club has such a leader among your members, or you know of someone in another club in the District, please consider nominating them so that, together, we can keep on doing the important humanitarian and peacebuilding work of Rotary.
The deadline to submit nominations is October 31, 2023, with interviews to follow in November via Zoom.  Nominations should be sent to DG Amy Killgore at amyk5910dg2324@gmail.com
Nearly 100 members from various Interact and Rotary Clubs in District 5910 gathered for the 2023 Interact Club Leadership Training on Saturday, August 5. The purpose of this training was to provide these young leaders with growth and networking opportunities as they prepare for the 2023-24 school year to Create Hope in the World.
Many of the incoming Board members wore their Interact shirts with quotes, such as “Small acts when multiplied by millions of people can transform the world. – Howard Zinn”  and Service Above Self. Many of our Rotary Clubs sponsor Interact Clubs in their local high schools. There are over 14,900 Interact Clubs in 145 countries. If your club is interested in starting an Interact Club, contact our District 5910 Interact Chair, Bill Friebel at bill@starfoxfinancial.com or 713-304-8944.

The awards included a special recognition to Richard Carey for his 35 years of dedicated service to Spindletop Rotary and Victoria Barnes who is now a member of Paul Harris Society, which is a recognition that acknowledges individuals who commit to donating $1000 per year to The Rotary Foundation.
Katy Jansen and Jay Sheppard were named “Rising Stars” and the Rotarian of the Year was awarded to Victoria Barnes. Additional recognitions went to Debbie Bridgeman for serving as the point person for the annual Rotary Roast fundraiser. Shannon Garrod was recognized for her assistance in maintaining the Soap Box Derby scholarships and finalizing the sale of Soap Box Derby cars and parts since the event had to be, unfortunately, discontinued.
Immediate past president Micah Leigh reflected upon her year before inducting the new board. "Serving as president of Spindletop Rotary has been such an honor,” she said. “The support and encouragement I received meant so much to me. We achieved great things this year and I am so proud to be a part of this Small but Mighty Club!"
