Suzanne Lewis-Johnson resigned as an FBI Special Agent to become RAHAB’s CEO in 2018.  She brought a vision of growing RAHAB’s programming locally and partnering with communities throughout the United States to replicate RAHAB broadly, so that in the land of the free everyone can truly be free.
 
The key to any success in Suzanne’s life is summed up in the last four words of the oath she took to become an FBI Agent, “so help me God.”
 
In the FBI, Suzanne led cases that made headlines, coordinated a Child Exploitation Task Force that addressed violent crimes against children in ten Ohio counties, and led a human trafficking investigation The FBI Story recognized as one of the FBI’s top cases of 2014.
 
With her Women’s Advisory Committee colleagues, she received the 2017 Director’s Award for Excellence from FBI Director Christopher Wray.
 
Already a frequent speaker on behalf of the FBI, in the spring of 2018 Suzanne received FBI Headquarters’ endorsement to become FBI adjunct faculty and teach classes as an FBI subject expert on Human Trafficking, Civil Rights and Violent Crimes Against Children.  Suzanne also participated in one of twelve Anti-trafficking Coordination Teams (ACTeams) in the United States, which the U.S. Attorney General and other Federal Agency heads at the Cabinet level created to investigate sex and labor trafficking.
 
On October 8, the Massillon Rotary Foundation awarded Mercy Medical Center a grant in the amount of $42,269.   These funds will be used towards the Phase II Cardiac program at Mercy's facility on the west side of Massillon.  The program will provide cardiac technology via a vascular ultrasound machine and tilt table to aid in the diagnosis and investigation of cardiac disease and treatment for the citizens of Massillon and Western Stark County.  The Massillon Rotary Foundation administers charitable funds from the old Massillon Community Hospital to provide health and wellness services to the community.  Grants are awarded quarterly and applications are available at www.massillonrotary.org.  For more information, send inquiries to MRFoundation10@gmail.com.

Water Bottle Service Project

 

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, school drinking fountains are off limits and students are required to bring their own water bottles to school.  This is impossible for many students in the Massillon, Tuslaw, and Fairless school districts. Partnering with Aqua Ohio, the Rotary Club of Massillon is providing 1000 water bottles for those students in need. Thanks Massillon Rotary and Aqua Ohio!

This past Saturday, a group of Rotarians, their family, and some friends from Tigertown AOK joined us for our annual cleaning of the Aaron Seesan Memorial at Lincoln Park.
