1978-1979President Darrell Luce
In July of 1978, the Las Vegas Rotary Club came under the leadership of Darrell Luce. The outstanding event of his year came in January of 1970 when Clem Renouf, the President of Rotary International, honored his area with his presence at a special dinner given at the MGM Hotel. At his gala affair, the R.I. President spoke about his new 3-H program, and the Las Vegas club, as well as other Southern Nevada clubs, made a large donation to this worthwhile venture. Darrell’s other outstanding accomplishment was the beginning of a “scholastic recognition” luncheon to honor the outstanding scholars from all the high schools in Clark County. This very successful event included most of the other clubs in the area and was attended by over 135 honor students.
