Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities. Piedmont Community Charter School-CFA has three core values: academics, character and community. The rotary club is known for their strong character and community service.
