On Saturday, June 17th, Heather Rimato was installed as our 2023-2024 District 5890 Governor.  In addition, her leadership team was also installed. 

Heather's installation ceremony was held June 17 in the Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel Sugar Land, with members of her club, family, friends and Rotarians from around the State of Texas.  The event was absolutely beautiful.   

Heather's 13-year old son, Rylan, shared his personal story about the importance of protecting all children from polio.  His commitment to helping raise funds to provide polio vaccines is remarkable and he inspired everyone to help End Polio Now.

As District Governor, Heather will serve Rotary clubs that are located in Harris County plus the eight surrounding counties which is the geographical area of Rotary District 5890.

As District Governor, Heather will help clubs pursue their service projects to help and improve their communities and also around the globe, as well as Rotary’s continued efforts to eradicate polio and create a completely polio-free world.

Before she could become District Governor, Heather had to go through extensive training to become well-versed in how to apply for grants, how to take on initiatives, and how to choose service projects. Her responsibilities as District Governor are to train the Assistant District Governors, incoming club officers and presidents on how to take on leadership duties for Rotary and encourage clubs to grow.

Heather's one year term will end on June 30th, 2024.
