Emken Linton
The Texas City Rotary Club 
 
Emken Linton as been a Rotarian since 1969.  He was proposed for Rotary by his father, Fred Linton.  Emken wanted to become a member to
establish business contacts with the leadership of his town.  He has had the opportunity to serve Rotary in different capacities including club committees,
President of his club, District Foundation Chair, District Governor and Rotary International Coordinator.  His participation in RYLA was during his year as
District Governor and continues to appreciate the impact RYLA has on the lives of all involved-both students and Rotarians.
 
He has had the opportunity to meet and work with talented Rotarians in District 5910 and in other Districts to achieve shared goals which have affected the
lives of other people. Emken says, “It has been very fulfilling to know you have been a part of an organization that has positively impacted the lives of people
you do not know and probably will never meet. There is so much good we can do working together.”  He remains in Rotary because there is still work to do.
 
Emken says, “I’m always proud to be a Rotarian but it really strikes home when I go to an International Convention and see people from different countries,
different religions and different cultures who are all giving of their time and talents in service to others.”
 
He believes that the 4 Way test is a reminder to refocus on what you everyone should be doing.
 
He is appreciative of his wife, Sherilyn, who is a big part of his involvement with Rotary.
