Robert McCorkle was sworn in as the fourth President of the Metropolitan Savannah Rotary Club during the Club’s regular meeting. McCorkle, a native of Savannah, is a Charter Member of the Club. He is a partner in the law firm of McCorkle, Johnson & McCoy, LLP and is a graduate of the University of Georgia Terry College of Business, and University of Georgia School of Law.
He was administered the oath by outgoing President Julie Wade.
McCorkle praised Wade’s leadership during her year-long tenure. The Metropolitan Savannah Rotary Club completed more than a dozen service projects across the community under Wade’s leadership, including construction of a community garden at Greenbriar Children’s Home and donation of nearly $10,000 for its upkeep. The Club met with a variety of community, business and nonprofit leaders during the year, and organized monthly social outings.
"You showed leadership and commitment to the Club and commitment to the community," McCorkle said to Wade while presenting her with an engraved Rotary International clock. "We are grateful for everything you’ve done."
