We congratulate Bonnie Pendleton who was selected to serve as District 5730’s Governor for 2020-2021.  Bonnie is a member of the Canyon Rotary Club and founded the Rotaract Club at West Texas A&M University. Bonnie is a 17-year Rotarian who joined Rotary to get to know people in her community and serve.  She was Club President in Canyon for Rotary’s Centennial. Bonnie has worked closely with district youth, is involved with membership development, and is an active supporter of the Rotary Foundation. She serves as District Polio Plus Chair. Her experience with international programs, communications, professional and leadership development, and Rotary events, projects and training will greatly benefit our District.
Bonnie is a professor of pest management in agriculture at West Texas A&M University.  She earned a Ph.D. degree in entomology from Texas A&M University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in biological sciences with a minor in chemistry and a Master of Arts degree in anthropology from California State University, Chico.    
Bonnie grew up in Tehama County, a rich farming area in far northern California where her ancestors lived for more than 150 years. She has been married for 28 years to Dr. Michael Pendleton, scanning electron microscopist at the Microscopy and Imaging Center at Texas A&M University in College Station.  
District 5730 extends a great thank you to Bonnie for her service to Rotary, and we look forward to her leadership in 2020-2021.
