PHILIPSBURG-Ruminni Rogers was inducted as the newest member of the Rotary Club of St. Maarten Sunrise on Tuesday, February 9.
Rogers is the son of Carlyle Rogers and Ramona Riley-Juan Pedro. He is a Police Officer, a talented Calypsonian, who captured the Junior Calypso crown in 2008, and has become the youngest member of the club.
Rogers was a member of the Rotaract Club of St. Maarten Sunrise, the youth chapter of the Rotary Club, where he served with dedication alongside a dynamic group of young professionals.
He is known for saying, “Anyone can join an organization, but it takes extraordinary people to make you stay.” During his time in the Rotaract Club, he held the position of Sergeant-At-Arms for the 2015-2016 Rotaract year, and assisted with Public Relations. A strong believer in shooting for the stars, Rogers decided that it was time to take his services to the next level, and took the bold step at the early age of 25 years to transition into Rotary.
President Marcellia Henry stated that, “Ruminni was chosen by the membership of our club because we believe he is a leader in his particular vocation as Police Officer, and possesses those qualities and values that Rotarians advocate, which is ‘Service above Self.’ As a young, dynamic, dedicated, and positive role model, we look forward to the contributions he will make to the club and the community of St. Maarten. We are happy that he decided to move on to the next level and have chosen the Rotary Club of St. Maarten Sunrise as the medium through which he can serve the St. Maarten community.”
Rotarian Rogers expressed gratitude towards the Rotary Club for making him feel at home and he is looking forward to serving with this extraordinary group of professionals.
The Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at Ginger Bread Café Restaurant at Belair Hotel from 7:00am to 8:00am. For more information on the club visit sxmsunrise.org or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also on Facebook: Rotary Club of Saint Martin Sunrise.
