District Vision  

Provide support and resources for every member to understand, achieve, sustain, and share “Service Above Self."

Rotary Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:
As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.   Rotary will cultivate a DIVERSE, EQUITABLE, AND INCLUSIVE CULTURE in which people from underrepresented groups have greater opportunity to participate as members and leaders.
A top priority for Rotary is growing and diversifying our membership to make sure we reflect the communities we serve.
We're creating an organization that is more open and inclusive, fair to all, builds goodwill, and benefits our communities. We want people with differing perspectives and ideas who will help Rotary take action to create lasting change in communities around the world.
Through Rotary, you'll find unique opportunities to get involved. Everyone is welcome in Rotary.

Sunny Yates Kellerman has been a Rotarian since 1997. She is a member of the Rotary Club of Silver City, NM, and was a member of Rotary in District 5130, in Petaluma and Healdsburg, CA, before moving to NM in 2005. She served as President of the Silver City Rotary Club in 2013-14. In District 5520, she has been a Country Contact for Belgium, France, and Taiwan on the District 5520 Youth Exchange Committee and has participated as a facilitator for the Rotary Leadership Institute (formerly the Rio Grande Academy). She also served as an Assistant Governor from 2016 to 2019. She is a member of The Rotary Foundation’s Bequest Society and Paul Harris Society.
Sunny grew up in Bethesda, MD, and graduated with a B.A. in Political Science from Bucknell University and a J.D., summa cum laude, from The George Washington University National Law Center. She practiced corporate and consumer law for four years and taught commercial law -- in Kentucky, Boston, and Cincinnati -- for 10 years.
She also worked for six years as a Senior Manager for the US office of The Global Hunger Project, an international, strategic nonprofit corporation dedicated to ending world hunger. There she was accountable for volunteer training and development, community education and outreach, corporate fund-raising, and event production. She has held numerous positions on nonprofit Boards of Directors.
Sunny and Harry Kellerman met through Rotary (Harry’s son Joe was a member of the Silver City Rotary Club) and married in 2016. They live in Silver City with their two dogs. Both of them enjoy travel, hiking, books, films, and cooking.                                                                  
Robert (Bob) Rausch
District 5520 Governor
2021 – 2022
I became a Rotarian in the Rotary Club of Albuquerque Del Norte in 2005. My first position was Red Badge chair where I worked with Red Badge inductees, introducing them to all things Rotary (and learning a lot myself).  Later, I became the Rotary International Committee chair for two years, and then after a year off, I was elected club president for the 2016-2017 Rotary year. 
I was born in Columbus, Ohio and I lived in Zanesville and Dayton before moving to Philadelphia while in junior high.  I went back to Ohio in 1969 to attend Miami University on an Air Force scholarship, graduating in 1973.  I went into the Air Force shortly thereafter.
My first assignment was undergraduate pilot training in Lubbock, TX.  After that, I primarily flew F-4s, 0-2s, and F-111s while serving in the Philippines, England, Germany, and all over the US.  I met my bride, Sandy, an Air Force nurse, while stationed in Sumter, SC and we married in 1980.  I retired after 20 years of active service while stationed at Clovis NM in 1993 and moved to Albuquerque for my next career, financial advising.
I spent the next 25 years helping my clients, mostly active-duty military families, on their road to financial independence. In 2005 I was promoted to District Advisor for the state of NM and held that position for 10 years before retiring in 2018.  I continue in aviation as a certified flight instructor.
I am married to USAF Col (Ret.) Sandy Rausch and have three sons and a grandson.  I enjoy flying, traveling, golf and fly fishing.
