Contact Don 

 When Don contacted Rotary International about forming a Rotarian Action Group for Peace in 2012, he learned that an application had already been submitted. He immediately got in touch and has been an invaluable part of the leadership team ever since. Don has been a member of the Rotary Club of Pinellas Park (Florida, USA) since 1996 and is a past member of the Rotary International Fellowship Committee. He was District 6950 Rotarian of the Year in 2001 and is the Past President of the St. Petersburg West Rotary Club 1998-1999. As a member of Rotary International for over 28 years, Don has also had many other experiences within Rotary including member and past chairman of Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship (ROSNF), member and past board member Rotarians On The Internet Fellowship (ROTI), member and past webmaster of the Rotary Global History Fellowship (RGHF) and a member of the International Computer Users Fellowship (ICUFR).

Don is a graduate of the University of South Florida with an MS degree in engineering. He worked for Florida Power for 25 years and served as their Director of Information Technology. He also worked for Micro Focus for nine years as system software developer, and managed his own consulting company, Automated Software Tools Corporation for eight years. Don is married to Charlotte Higgins, a retired high school guidance counselor and has two married daughters, Heather Disler and Holly Carter. Don’s hope for the Rotarian Action Group for Peace is that the group will help educate and motivate Rotarians and Rotaractors around the world to take action through Rotary club and district peace projects which contribute to sustainable world peace.
