Barbara Bice Profile

In May of 1987, the United States Supreme decided that Rotary clubs in the United States could not discriminate on the basis of gender. Shortly thereafter, Barbara Bice became the San Marino Rotary Club’s first female member. According to Barbara, even her own dad was not pleased with this decision.

Barbara was asked to join, and was sponsored, by Bill Steele and Lloyd Ownbey. Both are now deceased. Bill Steele later admitted that Barbara was chosen first, because she was “like one of the guys”. Barbara had already been working with Rotary through Operation Shadow while she was Director of Career Education at the San Marino High School. This was a career day where Rotarians and other parents spoke to a group of students regarding a professional path or hosted a one or more students for a day.

Barbara has been involved with education all her life. First as an AP English teacher, then as a career counselor during which time she founded the first career center at the high school. and later as an director of major raising funds for the San Marino Schools Foundation, followed by a similar position at the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena.
After spending 22 years in those positions, Barbara entered the volunteer management world, first as Director of Volunteers for the very successful 1994 World Cup Soccer Final in Pasadena. Barbara also served as a Scripps College Trustee for 13 years and is currently the board chair for the non-profit True Connection. This organization has allowed Barbara to fulfill her passion of connecting people with rewarding work that brings them professional and personal fulfillment.

As a member of San Marino Rotary, Barbara’s work on community service and international projects has enhanced her life immeasurable. It has also allowed to give back to the community in a meaningful way through the connections she developed as a Rotarian.

Coconut Plantation in Cambodia

The San Marino Rotary Club has supported and continues to support an aquaponics project at the village of Sen Sok near the central city of Siem Reap in Cambodia. A summary of this project is in the works. Over the last 12 months an additional short term project has been added near the Sras Srang village in the Siem Reap district. Both projects were viewed during a trip to Cambodia early in January of this year for Rotary members belonging to the International Projects Committee. Jean-Pierre and Andrew Kindler were the committee members participating.

The coconut plantation is a cash crop designed to fund a small portion of ODA operating costs. ODA (Opportunities for Development through Art) is an (Cambodian) NGO comprising eight English Schools. These schools, were initially intended to teach art as a usable skill to compete in a limited job market. English was added, for its potential to provide employment in the tourist trade. By empowering students to acquire employment, the standard of living of the student, his/her family, and their respective villages are improved. The coconut plantation is in the “backyard” of the #7 English school. It has its own irrigation and water storage system. The first coconut crop should be available for harvest in 3-5 years.
