Thanks to Lance Odom for presenting the Member Moment on February 2. Lance has been in Rotary since December 1999 and was President of Lincoln South Rotary Club 2002-2003.
Lance's Godfather and one of his mentors always told him that there would be a time when he would join Rotary. That time came - and he was introduced to Joe Roberts who sponsored Lance into Lincoln South Rotary Club.
Lance commented about the various significant groups that influence us - the people we know from work, home, church - and Rotary..
He grew up in northwest Iowa and graduated from Iowa State University. He worked at State Farm for much of his career, primarily in the training function. He is now at Duncan Aviation.
He is married to Sheila and they have one son - Harper. He recently returned to school to pursue his MBA.
