Rotary International numbers nearly 34,000 clubs worldwide, and the Rotary Club of Sacramento is the ninth largest in this global organization. Two CLU alumni have recently served as president of the 450-member club, which is also the 97th oldest in the Rotary world.
Tim Pinkney ’70 (l), an investment adviser with The Savant Group, began his term as the 97th president in July 2008. The Rev. Scot Sorensen ’80, Senior Pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church, took over as the 99th president July 1 of this year. During Pinkney’s presidency, the club donated more than $250,000 to Sacramento community needs while also providing more than $100,000 for international efforts to fund youth dental and surgical procedures, build libraries, and eliminate health issues for indigenous children and their families.
“From my perspective, the values and leadership skills learned and honed at Cal Lu were instrumental decades later in helping us reach the peak of volunteer service in our northern California community,” said Pinkney.
