New President: A Profile of Humor and Hard Work

Kade Meyer, the new President of Lawrence Central Rotary Club, shared his story and thoughts about the coming year. Kade’s time for watching movies with his cat has considerably diminished as he and his wife, Allison, recently welcomed their new baby daughter, Remy. Both Allison and Remy were in attendance to cheer Kade on. Kade moved a lot in his youth but did most of his growing up in the Denver area, which explains his enthusiasm for Colorado teams. Kade joined the Army Reserve when he was seventeen as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Specialist, serving for six years. He learned a lot in the Army, and in 2016 Kade joined State Farm Insurance in Lawrence. He is a graduate of Leadership Lawrence and the Kansas Leadership Center. Kade wants to build on a very good Rotary year, and while the club has made good progress with new members, attrition always is an issue. He would like for Quarterly business meetings to be more fun and better attended. Past President Jim Evers predicted that Kade’s hard work, enthusiasm, and sense of humor would serve the club well in the coming year.
