Mike Darragh, District Governor 2019-20

Mike enjoys helping clubs create more value for their members.  He served as Membership Co-chair for 3 of the past 5 years, during which District 6970 became known as one of the best in North America.  He would be the first to admit that 6970’s success comes from a string of strong leaders, working closely together, and building on the solid foundation of previous years.

​He was District Trainer for two years, as well as a facilitator at Rotary Leadership Institute, and served in a variety of other roles.

Mike retired from CSX after more than 35 years in railroad Operations, Finance, and Sales and Marketing.  Mike has lived all across the U.S., from Maine to Texas to California, but has lived in Northeast Florida the majority of his life.

Mike has been a member of South Jacksonville Rotary for 28 years.  He has spent time with Rotarians from at least 100 countries, but he found one of the most life-changing experiences was a National Immunization Trip to India in 2016.  For him, it was just one more example how The Rotary Foundation has allowed him to help more people than he ever dreamed possible….and Rotary continues to change him every day.
