Immediate Past District Governor (13-E) Micheal Gibbs
174 N. Miami Road, PO Box 175
Rushsylvania, Ohio 43347
Email: DG Micheal Gibbs
Micheal Gibbs spent several years caring for elder family members and, after their passing, found the experience had left him with an empty spot he needed to fill. He felt a need to serve his community as a whole. After researching Lions Clubs on the International website and learning about all the great things Lions do, he found his answer: he was a Lion!
Lion Micheal has had 100% attendance since joining the Rushsylvania Lions Club. He served his club as a 100% President, 100% Secretary (twice) and earned the Club President’s Excellence Award. Additionally, Micheal is Club Webmaster and has chaired several committees. He has sponsored twelve new members, two who joined in other clubs.
At the District level he has served as 1st and 2nd Vice District Governor, Tail Twister, Region Chair for Regions 1& 2 and Zone Chair of Zone 5. As Region Chair, Micheal received a 1st quarter award in 2013 and was also personally presented a 1st quarter award in 2014 by IPIP Joe Preston, at the USA/Canada Forum. He received a Zone Chairpersons Excellence Award and 1st Quarter award in 2013 as Zone Chair.
At the Multiple District Level he has become a fixture at events attending all of the Ohio Lions State Conventions and Winter Retreats since 2012. It is not uncommon to see Lion Micheal at a Club Charter Night or other club event in other districts around the state. He has attended the majority of the Other MD13 District Conventions since 2013
Lion Micheal has been active on the International Level as well, attending the Lions Champions of Change event at the White House, Lions Day at the UN in 2013, Lions Clubs International Conventions in Toronto and Hawaii, and the USA/Canada Forums in Kansas City and Puerto Rico.
Lion Micheal is humbled to be the recipient of many recognitions, including: a Six Diamond Progressive Melvin Jones Fellow, an OLERF Dick Bryan Fellow, and an OLERF Neiderhauser Award. He received a Lion Catcher Award in 2012, an Orientation Award in 2013, an MD 13 Council of Governor’s Award of Merit in 2013, an International Presidents Certificate from PIP Barry Palmer in 2014 and Year Round Growth Awards in 2012 and 2014.
Believing strongly that ongoing learning and reaching is essential to being an effective leader, Lion Micheal has graduated from both the LCI Emerging Lions Leadership Institute and the LCI Advanced Lions Leadership Institute. He has also completed all of the 22 Lions Learning Center courses offered on the LCI website, and is currently working on the “Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Lionism”, offered by the USA/Canada Forum.
Lion Micheal has never been married. He met his “Partner in Service”, Lion Dawn Rice-Norton of District 33K, while attending LCI ELLI in Tampa in 2013. They have since traveled to many Lions Clubs events together. He has been employed by the Benjamin Logan Local School District since 1997. Lion Micheal also owns and manages rental properties locally and is an active Precinct Election Official. In his spare time he pursues his passion for genealogy and is a member of the Hardin and Logan County Ohio Genealogy Societies and the Johnson County Kentucky Genealogy Society.
