CLAYTON, NC – Tara Abernathy, highly respected CEO and owner of Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Clayton and Office Evolution of Raleigh, was inducted at President of the Clayton Rotary Club at the District 7710 Leadership Transition Banquet on Wednesday, June 30th in Raleigh, NC.

As to her association with the Clayton Rotary Club, looking back 3 years, Mrs. Abernathy recalls it was after attending just a few meetings that she “was excited to see that the club was filled with established business owners, retirees, young entrepreneurs, and movers and shakers throughout Clayton. I felt a sense of community and dedication to Service Above Self, which is what I was seeking in my life.”

The Clayton Rotary Club is part of Rotary International, one of the world’s largest service organizations, where more than 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self. The club president is responsible for planning and leading club meetings, setting goals, encouraging communication between club and district committees, reviewing expenditures, participating in decisions, and motivating club members.
