Darrell May, Railroad Safety

In 2011, train engineer Darrell May was operating his train according to the rules in Texas and as he rounded a curve at 50 MPH, he saw a stalled tractor trailer on the tracks in front of him. He pulled the emergency brakes immediately, and he and his colleague threw themselves on the floor of the cab.
The collision with the tractor trailer at the railroad crossing was so severe that May was knocked out and he awoke days later in a hospital bed.
Since that day, the former train engineer’s life has been changed forever.  Come and hear this powerful story.

Johann, our Exchange Student from Germany, gave a neat presentation about his Exchange Year here in Texas with us. What a wonderful young man he is! We have been so fortunate to have him with us this year. He and PDG Doris presented each of his host Moms with flowers. It was a perfect Rotary morning!

Johan shared with the club his year experience in America. On August 13, 2016, his journey began with the Darby family that picked him up from the airport.  He reflected that it was one of his happiest days to have such a large group welcome him!  He had a great time experiencing Texas BB&Q, fishing and boating, deep sea fishing, worked a haunted house, attended the renaissance festival (was wired),  and Beaver Nuggets from Bucky’s.  He joined the Montgomery High School Choir and participated in his first solo.  He also played on the High School Varsity soccer team. Some of the difference he found between American and German Schools was here we startschool 40 mins earlier, we say the pledge a lot (he now has both memorized), and we have organized school programs, sports, and clubs.  He will miss the programs and organizations, but is planning on keeping up with choir when he gets home.  He got a little homesick at times, but his host families the Darby’s, Jaksiemasz, Perdu’s, Doris, Randall, and his friends (he made tons of friends) made him feel welcome.  This was truly a year and experience he will not forget.  He said a special thank you to the Rotary Club, and the host family for making him feels so welcome and helping him.  He has two more years of school and he is planning on attending a University in Berlin.  He plans on studying business and traveling to visit the friends he has made on his exchange!
