Valerie Harris, MBA
I was an international flight attendant for a major airline for most of my career. In 2012, I earned a MBA in Management and An Executive Master’s in Marketing and went to work as a Merchandising/Inventory Specialist for Walmart, in Charlotte, NC, and was responsible for 15 Walmart Superstores. Two years of working with Walmart, I became so “burned out” with my work life that I knew it was time for a change. After 2 years of prayer, I realized it was being called back to Atlanta, GA. I moved back to Atlanta with a position as a Concourse Manager at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and thought I was where I had found my niche. But little did I know, God had another plan for me. I was in church and heard about the 100 Women/100 Million Project and decided to investigate.
Well, since joining this program I have completed the following:
-successfully started and registered my company, Secure Transportation, LLC, with the Georgia Secretary of State,
– applied and received an EIN number with the IRS, Dun & Bradstreet number, Sams number,
-certified my business as WOSB, minority owned business,
-have my NAICS, PSC and NIGP codes, for securing contracts,
-registered my business with GA-DOAS, the state of Georgia,
-became a active client with GTPAC, Georgia Tech Procurement Assistance Center,
-attended many educational seminars and have gained access to major state and federal bidding systems.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CONYERS ROTARY CLUB AND 67,000 ROTARIANS BEING ASKED TO FEED A CHILD ON VALENTINE’S DAY
Local officials will join in this celebration, along with Senator Ronald Ramsey who will issue a Senate Resolution declaring February 14, 2014, as “Rotary Has Heart”. The ceremony will
occur at 12:00 noon at Cameron Hall at 1035 Green Street, Conyers, GA. The local Rotary Has Heart Chair coordinator, Diane Adoma and President Neal Sanford of Conyers Rotary Club will present a check from Rotarians to the local food bank to feed children.
In the United States, more than one out of five children lives in a household with food insecurity, which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 16.7 million children under 18 in the United States live in this condition – unable to consistently access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for a healthy life. If your club does not already have a plan to do something to feed hungry children on Valentine’s Day, begin now to look for a way to help.
Rotary International is an international service organization whose purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. It is open to persons regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender or political preference.
