Welcome to the Flexible, Friendly, Fun Rotary Family -
Rotary E-Club of Central Texas
Rotarian of The Month
 Reid Luedecke

Hi, my name is Reid Luedecke, I am a native Austinite who moved away and spent my formative years along the Texas gulf coast and then moved back to Austin in 2012 for college. I graduated from UT Austin with an undergraduate degree in Health Promotion and Health Education becoming a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES). My relationship with Rotary started in high school where I participated in the creation and leadership of our school Interact Club and attended our local RYLA camp. I continued working with Rotary through the Rotaract Club at the University of Texas at Austin where I was the secretary and then President. We were primarily sponsored by the University Area Rotary Club where Martha Myers and Suresh Pahwah, our Rotaract Club sponsors, helped guide and nurture our club for many years. Martha is the main reason I have continued to have a relationship with Rotary through the last 10 years, serving as an amazing mentor and friend through my educational and personal journey. 


After college, I went on to work as an elementary school teacher and then as a financial researcher for several years before deciding to pursue a lifelong dream to work in nursing. I then received my registered nursing license and Master’s of Science in Nursing Leadership from UT Austin in 2020 and went on to work in psychiatric nursing in various settings including acute-care hospitals, outpatient clinics, and now in a research setting studying new medications for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I am currently working part-time and finishing the last 6 months of my post-master’s psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) certification through UT Austin; this unfortunately keeps me busy 6 days a week and has recently limited my participation in Rotary. In my spare time, you can find me playing video games or trying new local Austin restaurants. And when meeting virtually, there is a good chance you will get to hear or see my very loud and affectionate cat, Stowe, who is currently obsessed with the laser pointer.

Better Friendship
     One of the challenges of an E-Club and of the pandemic is building better friendships.  So the goal of Rotarian of the Month is to know each other better.   When you are named please forward me a picture and lots of information about you- like where you grew up, family, schools, career, hobbies, Rotary service.  We want to get to know each other.  We would also like for you to do a "classification talk" at our monthly zoom meeting.  Let's keep working towards getting to know each other better.

Green Steps  provides service opportunities through supporting the environment, the newest area of focus in Rotary.  Green Steps is how members of Rotary E-Club of Central Texas can do service together while being apart.  We can each do our part and that is our service.   
Green Step #1 Avoid plastic by taking reusable  water bottle and bags with you. Reduce plastic by using Laundry Detergent  liquidless eco sheets like Earth Breeze. 
Green Step #2 Meatless Monday- Eat less meat and eat more environmentally friendly foods. 
 Green Step #3 Plant Pollinator Plants. By replacing grass with native flowers  and plants  you don't have to mow, water, fertilize, or use pesticides and that is good for  bees! 
Green Step  #4 Mindful Mowing (wait until wildflowers go to seed to mow) 
Green Step #5 Leave the Leaves on the ground. Allow leaves to turn into compost and help the soil. 
Green Step #6 Respect, Reverence, Respect in Relationship to Mother Earth by walking softly, leave no trace, feast responsibility, look to the Seventh Generation in all you do.
Step #7 Plant a Tree.   
Step #8 Lunch Local for Love (shop local farmer's markets)
Step #8- Be kind to bees ! Plant pollinator plants, don't use pesticides, put up a Mason bee house.
Step #9  Lights out at night for migrating birds.
Step #10  Recycle and compost.
Step #11 Use less electricity by unplugging electronics when not in use.
Step #12. Drive and fly less, bike more; Drive electric if you can. Fill your car tires to recommended pressure. 
Green Steps is how Rotary e Club of Central Texas do service individually since  members live apart. We can all make a difference  together.
