George grew up in a "small" central Nebraska farm town (Maxwell) of 250 residents.  A family move following his sophomore in high school, took him to Greeley, Colorado, to finish high school.  He earn a BA at Colorado State College (University of Northern Colorado) and completed his Master's program in 1971 at the University of Northern Colorado.  He worked his way through college as a Volvo/Datsun mechanic.  His 34 year professional career includes teaching special education (Walsh), CEO of Southeastern Developmental Services (Lamar) and CFO/COO of Developmental Opportunities (Starpoint - Cañon City).
Rotary service began at the age of 26 in the Lamar Rotary Club, serving as a Board Member, Secretary and President.  Awards during his presidential term include Presidential Citation, District 547 World Community Service Award and Runner Up - District 547 Rotary Foundation Award.  That 547 not a mistake, because this was before Rotary International added the "0" to the District designations.  George became a member of the Rotary Club of Cañon City in 1994.  Committee Chair assignments have been charter member of District 547 RYLA (1986), Group Study Exchange, Rotary International Scholarship, Rotary Club Scholarship, Club -The Rotary Foundation and Webmaster.   District assignments include Community Service Chair, Assistant Governor (2007-2014) and the current District 5470 Executive Secretary.  George has been a Rotarian for 40 years and is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow.​
