|DEBRA LIEVENSE-OUR NEWEST PAUL HARRIS FELLOW||Posted by David Honeychurch||on Mar 15, 2017||
Debra Lievense is the Resource unit manager at Willetton Senior High School (WSHS). In that role she has had a great deal to do with our Club but most especially with the newly formed WSHS Interact Club. So to recognise her untiring efforts and commitment to the school, it's students and the wider community, the Club awarded Debra a Paul Harris Fellowship. We are very grateful for everything Debra has done to advance the Rotary cause through the students and such was the significance of the event that Debra and her story made the front page of the Canning Times on Wednesday 7 March. It's well worth the read. To do so Click here.

In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.
