Savi Bihm Selected as District Governor Elect Nominee 2019-20
I am pleased to announce that Savi Bhim from the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise has been selected to serve as District 5240 Governor for Rotary Year 2019-20.
Savi joined the Rotary Club of  Simi Sunrise in 2005. She has served her club in various areas including traveling to South Africa and South America to do International projects. In 2013-14 she served as president and because of the inspired actions of the 126 members, Simi Sunrise was recognized as the Best Overall Club in the district.
Savi has served District 5240 in many capacities including Membership Advisor for Region 2 and  Group 5 Assistant Governor. She is currently serving as the District's Chief Operating Officer.  After attending PRLS, she was touched by the dedication and expertise of the instructors and became a district and PETS trainer. She has chaired and collaboratively planned many district events including District Conferences, seminars, retreats and the District Training Assembly. In addition, she has spoken at and emceed numerous Rotary events.
Savi was born in Guyana, South America. She is the youngest of five siblings. At the age of three she lost her father, which left her mother the daunting task of bringing up five children ages three to fourteen. Throughout her childhood came many who helped, wanting nothing in return and because of this it is her passion and her life’s mission to continue this tradition of selfless generosity by serving others.  Rotary provides the powerful platform to transform the lives of so many through “Service Above Self”.  Service is being part of this noble organization that allows one to witness first-hand the transformation of lives.   Whether it is saving the life of a three year old boy in South Africa infected with the Aids virus, giving the gift of mobility to an elderly woman in South America or providing a park where physically challenged children can have the chance to be just kids right here at home, Rotary provides the opportunity to do it all and more.
Although she received many awards throughout her Rotary years, Savi was deeply honored to be the recipient of the District 5240’s Samuel E Green “Service Above Self Award” for the Rotary year 2014-15.
Please join me in congratulating Savi on her selection as District 5240 Governor for Rotary Year 2019-2020.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Nick Frankle
