“Leadership is not a position or title; it is action and example.”
– Donald McGannon
This Week's Speaker:  Mr. Kirk Driskell
Past Club President, Future District Governor, Founder of Vision Warriors
A native of Alpharetta/Milton, Kirk lives in the area with his wife Deena, and their three children, Cambri (17), Knox (15) and Kolton (12).
Kirk joined the Alpharetta Rotary Club, following in the footsteps of his father, Ken Driskell, a charter member and past President.  And continuing the family tradition, Cambri launched an Interact Club at King’s Ridge Christian School with close to 85 of her peers.
Before serving as Club President in 2015-2016, Kirk served in multiple club leadership roles, multiple international service trips and local community service projects, and was honored to receive both “Rookie of the Year” and “Rotarian of the Year” awards.  During his presidency, the club won numerous awards, including Club of the Year and Best Membership Growth.  Kirk was also awarded the Sheffield Award, which recognizes the top President in each of the four club categories for that year.
Kirk served as District 6900 Service Chair in 2016/17, Assistant Governor 2017/18, District 6900 Public Image Chair in 2018/19 while preparing to serve as District Governor 2020/21.  In 2016/17 Kirk became a Major Donor and continues to support the foundation.  Rotary International recognized Kirk with the Rotary Choice Award for a personal video he uses to describe what being a Rotarian means to him.
Kirk is a serial entrepreneur and outdoor enthusiast that builds, buys, or creates companies that provide opportunities for individuals to align their passions with their purpose.  Beyond his family and his faith, his true passion in life is helping men struggle with addiction.
Kirk founded Vision Warriors ministry, a faith community that focuses on accountability, and transparency.  Vision Warriors provides support for men who are ready to fight their drug and alcohol addictions.
