Meet new Rotarian Luke Taylor
Luke is the Project Director for Nemours Children's Health.  His classification is Healthcare - Pediatric Health and his sponsor is Deborah Erwin-Nash. When asked the reason he joined Rotary - " Let’s be real, after college and the excitement of our 20s, adult life can get boring. Finding ways to stay engaged with things that matter to us require relationships, but once you’re working full time making and keeping those connections is tough. I don’t just want to network either, I want to engage to learn, and connect for action. Rotary provides an outlet for this—for anyone driven by altruism and volunteerism, or those who crave engagement in local civic and economic interests, you’ll find a home with Rotarians.
