- John Gliha Rejoins Paradise Rotary Club
John was “taken under the wing” of the Bainbridge, New York Rotary club in his teen years after both his parents passed on. The Club guided him to Interact where he learned his most valuable life lesson. As John puts it, “I learned from them the value of community service, the value of how an organization can make a change in one person’s life and how that can have a ripple effect throughout vast areas.” His career path was directly influenced by an awareness of and a focus on how fund raising has a huge impact.
John began his journey by wanting to become a violist. He studied with the principle violist of the Philadelphia Symphony and Joseph Ingle. Even before college he began to develop neuropathy in his hands and feet. His secondary education started at Oswego State, he moved to ASU, then Iowa State University studying Music History. His thesis was to be on the acculturation aspects of tracing the Asian Haiku across the land bridge into Native American music. He became a music librarian, but through his work was drafted into the Capital Development Office during ASU’s transition from a teacher’s college into a research institution. While there, he worked on a 5 year, $75M capital campaign. After only 4 years it was completed and had raised $135M. At that point he learned that when a capital campaign is completed, you’re out of a job.
Next John moved on to ISU to work on a campaign that closed with $150M. Then he was recruited by Marts & Lundy, a professional fund-raising consultancy, where he worked for 5 years. He determined his pay (too low) was not on par with his productivity, so he moved on. He did more capital campaign work, sold insurance (AFLAC), and ended up at Butte College to head the Butte College Foundation.
Today he’s a Rotarian, Mason, President of the Paradise Scholarship Foundation and is Past President of PPAC. He also works with the Butte Community Action Agency, the Scottish Society, and Paradise Symphony. John feels that all that has come before in his life can be attributed to his first Rotary experience from a local Rotary Club.
