More than 10% of our Rotary Club members participated in the Educator for a Day event on Nov 17.  The event  included a breakfast meeting at the Northern Hotel featuring Rotarian Todd Vralsted, BEA Foundation Chair, convening the meeting, and  Darrell Ehrlick, Billings Gazette Editor, serving as moderator for a panel which included Rotarians Steve Arveschoug, Dr Terry Bouck and Dr Bob Wilmouth.


Participants then spent two hours on site at local grade schools, middle schools or high schools.  Participants included Rotarians  Eric Nord,  Bill Dutcher, Carl Jackson, Tom Hanel, Robyn Sargent, Darrin Rich, Andy Gott, Kyle Lantz, Kim Kaiser, Kristie Asay, Bob Carr, Sarah Brockel, Zach Dunn and Sandy Wong.
