“Rotary has allowed me to use my educational and professional background to build healthier, more resilient communities in Houston and beyond,” Houston Skyline Rotarian Ed Pettitt says, and to make “invaluable” connections and friendships with other members. 
For Pettitt, being part of a diverse club where members are experienced in areas such as law, medicine, and construction has opened doors to service opportunities as well as professional development. Rotary members with construction skills helped repair damages to neighbors’ homes with burst pipes due to a winter storm and those who are lawyers helped prevent the eviction of Pettitt’s neighbor who lost her job and fell behind in rent after Hurricane Harvey.
