COLORADO SPRINGS — The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs (1154) has inducted its first Black president.

Rodney Gullatte Junior was president-elect the past year and was inducted on Wednesday.

The club has been around a hundred years and he’s proud to be a part of it.

He said progress has been made and he’s excited to move the group forward with this year’s theme, “Rotary Opens Opportunities.”

"We're gonna be opening up our Rotary Club to bring in different voices this year. We want to make sure we're blessing as many people we can with the work we do and getting as many people involved who want to have an impact-full change on this community. So, this is the place to do it,” Gullatte Junior said.

Despite the challenges Covid-19 has brought about the club says they’re moving full speed ahead with their impactful charity projects.
