The Visit of
2022-23 District Governor Anita McDonald
 
 If you have ever communicated with DG Anita via email, you know her email is msmathlady@live.com. The “msmathlady” is a name her husband coined for her and then carved the words “msmath” out of a piece of wood. She added ‘lady’ when she set up her email account. 
 
 
DG Anita has enjoyed math since her early years growing up in the Detroit area. She eventually went on to Wayne State University where she majored in mathematics at the undergraduate level and in mathematics education for her masters. She received her Ph.D. from St Louis University in Education with her research focus on mathematics instruction, technology and curriculum.
 
After teaching at the secondary and post‐secondary level for several years Anita became the first African American Academic Dean at the University of Missouri in St Louis. She also served as Dean of the Extended University and Director of Summer Sessions at the University of Arizona for 11 years before becoming Chancellor at the DuBois campus of Penn State University.  When she retired in December 2012, the DuBois community and the Penn State University community honored her with an endowment in her name, for children and youth, which is currently valued at more than $80,000. 
 
DG Anita’s commitment to children and youth remains a primary focus in her life including her involvement in Rotary through the club projects in her Catalina Rotary Club and her continued involvement in higher education.  Children and youth will be a focus for her during her year serving as District Governor.  -From the D5500 website bio of Governor Anita
 
 
Anita shared with us her theme for the year –

ENGAGE all members and the public
 
ENJOY Rotary, do good and have fun
 
We appreciated DG Anita’s visit and all of the information she shared.
