-Richard Gouse, President
Since my first time helping out others and the community, I have wanted to continue this experience. My service with the Royal Bahamas Defense Force allowed me to grow personally in ways I never dreamed possible. My life was enriched by helping victims of hurricanes by repairing homes, cleaning beaches and streets of debris, providing search and rescue operations, and working in shelters and food banks to support the victims of natural disasters. At NEIT, my involvement in the Rotaract Club has helped enrich and support the lives of those less fortunate in the East Greenwich community through my numerous community activities. I plan to make volunteerism a natural extension of my life for as long as I am physically capable of such involvement. I love to make a positive impact on others.
