Starkville Rotary Club Presidents

The Starkville Rotary Club emphasizes the indispensable cooperation of “town and gown” in a community whose focus is Mississippi’s flagship research university. In that spirit, the Club alternates executive leadership annually by electing a person employed by one of the area institutions of higher learning in odd-numbered years and a civic or business leader in even-numbered years. The year listed is when they took office; the Rotary year begins July 1.
