Couple to be sworn in for presidency roles
ROTARY president Dave Heathcote has announced that Denver Agram will lead Rotary King William’s Town for the next year.
Agram will be sworn in as president at Rotary’s induction dinner to be held in June. His wife, Tracy, Agram will take over the Rotary Anns presidency from Jenny Heathcote. Both Dave and Jenny wished them all the best for the year ahead.
Denver Nathan Agram was born in King William’s Town in 1971 and attended Breidbach Senior Secondary School, where he matriculated.
Denver studied production management at the University of SA (Unisa) obtaining a degree in production management and industrial engineering. In 1996 he married Tracy and they have three children Meghan, Monique and Adam.
When Denver was asked what Rotary meant to him, he said it was all about hard work and motivation.
“Rotary to me is about the change we can make in the world and how much better the world can be with Rotary in it. It’s about helping people in need and by living our motto ‘service above self and more’,” he added.
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.
“Solving real problems takes commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects – from literacy and peace to water and health.
“We are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to it,” read a statement from Rotary.
