Chris Davis Interview with Marcia Walsh September 24, 2018
 
Q: Where did you grow up?
 
I was born and grew up in Indianapolis. I have two younger sisters; one lives in Longmont and one lives in South Haven, MI, though she also used to live in Colorado and is planning to move back here later this year.  My great grandparents bought a vacation home in South Haven, MI where we spent our summers growing up. My father worked for GM after studying psychology. He had a strong work ethic and encouraged me to have a paper route in middle school. My mother obtained a degree in special education while I was in high school and is a retired teacher. I was also influenced by my maternal grandmother, a high school principal, who lived nearby. She had been a PGA teaching professional and played tennis and was the one who taught me to compete. I had a great childhood and still keep in touch with friends whom I grew up with.
Evergreen Rotarians, Ted Ning, Jim Kreider, Richard and Susan Toussaint, and Al Steger, were joined by former members, Bob and Brenda Hagerman and Conifer Rotarian, Pat Hagan, on a visit to rural Guatemala to see firsthand the work being done under our first ever global grant.  The $162,125 grant, Young Mayan Women as Engines of Economic Growth in Guatemala through Empowerment and Education, is being carried out with the assistance of MAIA-Impact, formerly Starfish One-by-One.  The grant is about half completed. 
 
The Rotarians received a briefing on the grant from administrators at the MAIA Impact school, the implementing partner.  They also met with Rotarians from the Rotary eClub of Lake Atitlan to discuss reporting and oversight procedures.  We are happy to report that the grant is proceeding on schedule and reporting is up to date.   The next steps are completion of the mid term report followed by an on-site review by The Rotary Foundation.  These have been requested but are not yet scheduled.  All work on the grant is expected to be completed by October.
How does a life changing project of Rotary “Service Above Self” begin?  For Bob and Carol Rose, it was a service trip, teaching English in the Bay Island of Honduras in 2015. The couple was overwhelmed by the isolation and lack of opportunities on St. Helene. After arriving home, they consulted with several experienced fellow ERC members and were advised to first listen and learn from St. Helene’s community members. They were warned that development ultimately fails when you don’t take this first step. Bob went back to school and received a certification in Community Development.
 
The islanders had begun a new leadership group called “The St. Helene Progressive Movement,” or “Patronato.” Through trainings sponsored by Evergreen Rotary Club, community members identified their needs, challenges and strengths in the areas of water, power, education, health and economic development.
