George Six receives official papers from President Bob Keely<
George D. Six has established something of a Rotarian track record up and down the Kanawha Valley, and today he was inducted for the second time into the Putnam club by President Bob Keely.
Six began his Rotary service career at Pt. Pleasant in 1975. He served as President of the Pt. Pleasant group in 1983-84.
Working his way up the Kanawha River with American Electric Power, Six transferred to Putnam Rotary and was a member here from 1996 to 2001.
And when he became manager of the AEP Simulator Learning Center in 2001, he transferred to the St. Albans Rotary Club. He served as president of the St. Albans group in 2010-11.
A Paul Harris Fellow and sustaining member (contributing each year to the Rotary Foundation), Six has twice been recognized as a Rotarian-of-the-Year (1982 and 2009). For the past five years, he has maintained a record of perfect attendance.
As Rotary District 7550 training chair, George maintains a club database for southern West Virginia. He also serves as web master for the St. Albans club.
Despite repeated attempts to get Six to affirm his return to Putnam because it was the best club in the valley, he maintained that the transfer actually was a metter of convenience. George and spouse Jennifer live in Hurricane, and, fact is, the Putnam meetings are closer than either St. Albans or Pt. Pleasant.
A 1971 graduate of West Virginia University with a bachelor of science in electrical engineering, Six is now retired from AEP and all other endeavors except community leadership service in Rotary -- marking 37 years of continuous "service above self."
