Rotary on the Ridge installed Jonathan Lamont White as a new member Monday, Feb. 18. White is an investor with Empower Through Enterprise and also works to promote the Bartow real estate business of his wife, Destini Lewis, Heavyweight of Real Estate.

Curtis Gibson sponsored White into the club and vouched for his character and commitment to community service.

"Jonathan wants to really make a difference in the community," Gibson said. "He will be a great addition to our club."

Lewis, her son Charles-Anthony and nearly 3-month-old baby Lily attended the special installation ceremony.
