Ryan Fagan

I’m excited to lead this club in it’s 11th year. I joined Rotary as a way to network, help out in the community, and experience everything Rotary has to offer. When not leading the club, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my wife and two small children.

Angela Schwartz

President Elect
I joined SMME Rotary as a way to create personal connections and to give back to the communities in which I live. I was a Rotary Youth Exchange student in Nagasaki, Japan from 20011-2012 and have been involved in the North Star Youth Exchange program ever since. I have a passion for traveling to new places and being artistic in as many mediums I can get my hands in.

I have a Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology and work with pediatrics. I love going on adventures, spending time with family and friends, knocking things off my bucket list!

I joined Rotary in 2011 after moving to a new city. It was a great way to meet people and continue to give back to the community. Rotary has provided leadership opportunities and travel for global projects. I work at 3M and enjoy getting outside and exploring new foods/cultures!

Kathleen Uygun

Fundraising Chair
Hello! I have been involved with Rotary since 2012 through Interact Club, Roteract, and now SMME Rotary! Volunteering has always been a passion of mine, and I am so happy to have found a club where friends can get together and practice “service above self”. I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Global Studies, and I am currently studying herbalism. In my free time I like to paint and experiment in the kitchen!
