Rotary Club of Ventura South

 
 
Jack Pollock, Rotary President-Elect Nominee, reported out on the 2021 Community Assessment.
 
Of the topics discussed, were areas of most need in the City and County of Ventura.  Attention was paid to rising trends of economic growth within the County, an underdeveloped nonprofit sector, rising levels of poverty, lack of preschool care for underprivileged families, an influx of non-native English speakers, and dramatic upticks in teen depression and suicide.
 
Jack also highlighted nonprofits in the area making sizeable progress in the community that the Rotary of Ventura South would like to support or partner with going forward, including, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura, the Arc of Ventura County, the Westside Community Council, and School on Wheels, to name a few.
 
Jack, a native of Ohio, attended Bowling Green State University, where he completed a degree in finance.  After school, he held various executive positions in several companies, most notably, General Electric, where he headed international operations. 
 
Jack spent the majority of his time in the midwest during his corporate tenure, but moved out to Ventura with his wife, Carol, to be closer to his family. 
 
Outside of Rotary Jack can be found serving as a flight instructor at Camarillo Airport or spending time with grandkids.  We are pleased to have him a part of our team and Rotary family.
