Gary Huang played a lot of sports when he was younger, but basketball was his favorite. 
He was captain and point guard of his high school team. 
“I’m not tall, but I was quick.” He flashes a grin
. “I knew how to move the ball and set my team up to win.”
 That was decades ago, but whether in basketball, business, or Rotary,
 moving the ball continues to be Huang’s game.
 He likes action and progress. He relishes a challenge.
 When the Rotary Club of Taipei told him he was too young to be a member
, he persisted, attending every meeting for nine months
 until he hooked an invitation at age 30.
 Since then, he has not stopped moving forward.
 Five years after joining Rotary, Huang became club president.
 Then he became Taiwan’s youngest district governor, 
first RI director, and first Rotary Foundation trustee. 
This month, he becomes the first Chinese president of Rotary International.
Huang was born in Fujian, a province in southern China.
 He is the third child of seven. 
Like many others, his family fled China during the civil war,
 unhappy with the communists who were taking over the country. 
The family settled in Taiwan in 1947, 
when Huang was one year old.
Huang’s parents pushed him to excel in school, 
but they also believed that grades were not the only things that were important.
 “My father used to say to me that getting B’s was OK
, but I had to participate in activities and join clubs. 
He said that would help me in the future,” Huang recalls.

Although Huang’s father was not a Rotarian,
 he instilled similar ideals of service in his son
. Helping others, his father said, would help him learn how to be a leader.
 As a result, Huang was president of his high school class
. Besides playing basketball, he played soccer, ran track and,
 at the urging of his mother, participated in (and often won) speech competitions.
 He also led the daily morning pep rallies at his school for six years
. “My father was happy I did those things,” Huang says. 
“Every time there was a school celebration, 
no matter how busy he was, he would always attend.”

#############################








An enterprising African family was well known
 for mining large amounts of various,
 expensive, green gemstones. 
The quality of their gemstones was unequalled in the world 
and the family's success caused them to lose touch
 with the realities of outside events. 
By not paying attention to what was going on in the marketplace
, they frequently made the mistake of overproduction.

During one particular year,
 the market for the green jewels fell sharply and the family
 soon realized they had produced far more stones
 than they could ever sell without driving the marke
even further into the ground.

So the problem then became: 
what to do with the excess stones.
 After considerable debate,
 the family agreed to a unique method of using the surplus.
 They donated them to the local high school sports department 
that used them to pave the running track.


It was indeed a beautiful thing and soon became known as the 
"Track of all Jades".
