Program for May 6, 2021  .
 Fred Lokken, Dept. Chair of Political Science, TMCC
A recognized political pundit for Nevada, regional and & national politics, Fred Lokken has served 27+ years at TMCC in numerous administrative and teaching positions, including Dean of the WebCollege Academic Support Center.  He was also Trustee for the Washoe County Library District in a time of important transition.  
Professor Lokken regaled us with information and stories of local, state and national politics.  One interesting point of the discussion (there were good questions!) is that the very large turnout in 2020 was an anomaly--turnout rates have been historically low in in the US.  Some of this is caused by a growing distrust of the role of political parties.

Breaking the Board
Achievement Beyond Obstacles Student Presentations
This year's students have overcome a lot, not just in their own challenging lives, but also dealing with the first worldwide pandemic in more than 100 years.  With the exception of Leadership Weekend, ABO was virtual this year.  Our program has 5 videos to share with Reno South Rotarians, as well as additional information.  Remember, Reno South started this program in 1996 as Most Improved Student!
BE THERE to support our students as they tell us about their obstacles, achievements and goals and compete for scholarships.  These stories are personal and powerful.
