Rotary Club of Mineral Wells welcomed District 5790 Governor Peter Scott to Wednesday's meeting.

Governor Scott touched on the local club's current activities, programs and projects and stated the Mineral Wells club is a vibrant, engaged club within the community.

Scott touched largely on the importance of membership and membership growth to show its strength, diversity and reach. On the day of Governor Scott's visit, the club welcomed two new members, Marc Woolvard, an agent with Palo Pinto County Farm Bureau, and David Hawes, the city's current interim economic development director. Hawes is a past member and president of Mineral Wells Rotary.


As district governor, Peter is over 73 clubs spread out across the North Central Texas Plains.

Beginning his professional career as a financial advisor for Edward Jones in Cleburne in 1983, he became a member of the Rotary Club of Cleburne. He and his family to Arlington in 1988, and Peter joined the Rotary Club of Arlington. He became involved in fundraising for the Webb School scholarship program that later received recognition from the White House.

He is past president of his home club and has served multiple years as president of the Arlington Rotary Foundation. Prior to becoming district governor, he served as assistant governor for four years. Peter serves on other civic organizations including the Arlington Chamber of Commerce Public Policy Committee, the Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau Board of Directors, and the Downtown Arlington Management Corporation Board, among others.

Rotary Club of Mineral is most appreciative of the message and positive words Peter brought to the club today. Rotary Club of Mineral Wells will make a donation to Rotary Foundation in Peter Scott's name.
