ROSELLE/ROSELLE PARK, NJ - Keyanna Jones has quite an impressive resume, from being a member of the National Head Start Association to her talent as a Linguist. Among her many positions, she has become the first African-American Woman President of the Rotary Club of Roselle-Roselle Park is a landmark accomplishment.
“I always want to be the change,” Jones said. “I don’t believe that it is enough to simply hope for things to get better. I have a responsibility to make a positive impact on this world and Rotary is my opportunity to do just that.”
A native of Atlanta, Jones moved to Roselle in 2005, where she jumped right into the Roselle Family. She’s been involved in every facet of the community from PTO membership to coaching softball and most recently, she was named chair of the Executive Committee of the Roselle Everett Hatcher Prevention Coalition.
On her list of community service efforts, Jones was also elected to serve on the Roselle Board of Education, sitting on the School Safety, Curriculum & Technology and Finance Committees.
“I know of a lot of people and organizations that talk about doing great things, but Rotary is actually doing it,” Jones said. “Looking into this year my goal is to drive diversity in membership while serving the `Twin Boroughs’ in a more meaningful way. Expanding our reach through increased involvement in our community is paramount to achieving this goal, and I am more than confident that this will be an impactful Rotary Year.”
