My name is Bill Rosnett and I am the current President of the Kiwanis Club of McKinney, following on the heels of the successful presidency of Michelle Beatty. The McKinney club is an active and growing club with approximately 90 members, making us one of the largest clubs in the DFW area, if not the largest club.
Our club remains vibrant by keeping traditions alive such as our Annual Pancake breakfast, BBQ dinner and Triathlon but also adding new events such as Shooting for the Future. We have a healthy mix of members who have been involved since the early 1940's to young professionals who are just moving to the area looking for a service organization to join.
By profession, I am a minister with the Northwest Christian Church in McKinney and am also a degreed family/individual counselor as well as a Certified Life and Pastoral Coach. Educationally, I hold a Doctor of Practical Theology degree from Master's International University of Divinity in Evansville, IN. I am married to Lela (for 45 years and counting) with one child, Dean, and three active grandsons.
I first joined Kiwanis in the mid-1980's in Jacksonville, AR., and worked up through the ranks of being club Secretary/Treasurer, club Vice-President and then club President. I joined the McKinney Kiwanis Club in 2013, after several years away from Kiwanis ministering in a small town in Illinois that had no Kiwanis club.
As many are, I was drawn to this club because everyone is so welcoming and everyone shares the same goals of all Kiwanis clubs of giving back to the community and of serving the children of the world. Oh, lest I forget, we are a club that has a lot of fun being around each other.
I am humbled and honored to be allowed to be the President of the McKinney Kiwanis club and look forward to implementing our international formula which continues to be to: Love It, Share It, Live It!
