Sharalyn Davis, BM, MT, MBA has been a Rotarian for 16 years. Her journey started at Climax Rotary Club when she was on the school board and she soon served as Club President, Assistant Governor, and on various club and district committees. She was attracted to Rotary’s Purity of Purpose and fell in love with the theme the year she joined “Sow the Seeds of Love.” She has since been a member of Cereal City Sunrise and currently serves with Union City Rotary.

With Rotary she joined two Bio-Sand Water filter trips to Dominican Republic and in 2018 traveled to India to build a dam with The Dream Team, a Rotary International group.

She’s attended four International Conventions and encourages all Rotarians to join her for the next one in Singapore May 25-29, 2024. The incredible comradery of 30,000 Rotarians from 200 Nations is an  experience that is absolutely exhilarating! Everyone with dreams and passions for world peace through Rotary, together in one place, is life changing!

What also drew her to Rotary was the opportunity for international service.  The strength of the Rotary Foundation makes dreams happen through international project partnerships that offer hope and build prosperity in developing nations.

Sharalyn’s international interest has taken her to over 30 countries, not just with Rotary, but as a clarinetist with the National Medical Orchestra (Washington DC), and most recently with Agape Community Transformation (Lansing) teaching music in Uganda.

She intends to pursue international service through a new Peace Corp-Rotary partnership after serving as District Governor. Rotary is expanding every day in every way to create service opportunities for every stage of life.

Sharalyn worked for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center as a music therapist for 30 years and brings her passion for creative expression in healing, relationship and resiliency building to Rotary this year.  Our new International President Gordon McInally is asking Rotarians to CREATE HOPE IN THE WORLD with special emphasis on deeply caring for our fellow members and communities this year! Mental Health is at the forefront of his HOPE campaign. It’s the perfect message for encouraging Rotarians to imagine new approaches for building peace and healing our communities, and our District is on it!

Her degrees are through WMU (Music/Music Therapy), Davenport University (MBA) and she completed a Political Leadership Fellowship (MSU). She has led United Way campaigns, National Veterans festivals, political candidate forums and trainings, 4-H animal agricultural projects, township government commissions, and currently serves on the boards of The Music Center, AAUW, and Magenta Girls (Uganda). She has an adult son Christopher and wife Christa who live nearby.

Joys include ARTS, musical performance, tap dancing, community activism, hairdressing, and exploring our amazing planet and all the incredible life forms!
