Member Spotlight: Scott Burleson

Scott Burleson has been a Rotarian in Carolina Forest Sunrise Club since March 2019, and has been a member of Rotary for 25 years before that! Scott’s Rotary resume reads like a who’s who of Rotary. Prior to his service in our club this year as your Sergeant-At-Arms, he was President of the Cumberland Maryland Club in 2001-2002, of the Chestertown Maryland Club in 2008-2009 & 2009-2010 years, and a Past Assistant Governor in that District. Scott is a Paul Harris Fellow, and Sustaining member of Rotary International. He has received our Club’s Service Above Self Award in 2020, and is the current recipient of the prestigious Rotarian of the Year for his dedication to our club in the past year.

Scott has served the Maryland Defense Force from 2012-2017 as Lt Colonel, and worked in Hospital Management and Healthcare for 37 years. He now spends his time teaching the next generation of these professionals at three universities. His hobbies include swimming/aquacize, sailing, and modestly calls himself a “novice golfer.” We hear he is a prodigy.

We are both proud and fortunate that Scott is a member of our Club!!! He has been a major part of our success, and we look forward to many more years of dedicated service!!

“Join me in thanking Scott Burleson for his service to Rotary, the Carolina Forest Community, and our Carolina Forest Sunrise Rotary Club!,” says President Steven Manz Jr.
