Victoria Perez, who helped lead the MCU Rotaract Club while she was a student there, introduced our Rotaract speakers, Dominique Alvarez and Raymond Godoy. Their Faculty Advisor is Dave Tomblin, an Associate Professor of Business Administration there, and also our Area AG for Club Service and a member of the LA5 Rotary Club. (He proposed that our Club fund a scholarship for Marymount California students.)

Dominique Alvarez is a Junior in Media Studies (Broadcasting and Journalism) at CMU. She was awarded Student of the Year by our Rotary Club in April 2016 for her activities in the award-winning Rotaract Club, including fundraising to End Polio. Among recent Rotaract activities is a fundraiser selling Rotaract Club “Mariner” t-shirts ($15), with proceeds going towards the Club’s future service projects.

Raymond Godoy is a Senior in Business Administration at CMU. He served an internship in the Vernon Police Department and now has a part-time job there. He plans to continue working part time while studying for an MBA, and is interested in City Administration.

The Marymount Rotaract Club has won awards at the District level as well as on campus for its many outstanding activities and events. These have included End Polio Now fundraising, organizing a Backpacks & School Supplies collection for the District’s Panama Humanitarian Project (2016), Cabrillo Beach cleanup, collecting baby supplies for Camp Pendleton military families, elementary school service, District 5280 Youth Leadership Conference, Palos Verdes Land Conservancy, and Holiday Toy Drive.
