Erik McGuire

Rotary Club of St. Joseph East

Erik joined the Rotary Club of Burlington, KS in 2008. After moving to St. Joseph, MO he joined the Rotary Club of St. Joseph East in 2012. Being a part of this great club inspired Erik to get involved with a variety of service projects, and to complete the Rotary Leadership Institute. Erik had the opportunity to serve as the club’s President in 2016-2017. Other roles he has served in at the club level include meals on wheels coordinator, sergeant-at-arms, spaghetti fundraiser chair, leading the 2015-2016 district grant to install a play-path at Northeast Park in St. Joseph, and Shoes for Orphan Souls Cheerleader.  

Erik currently serves as St. Joseph East Rotary’s newsletter editor and Rotary Foundation Chair.

Erik was born in Kirksville, MO and spent time in both Missouri and Kansas growing up. After graduating from Truman State University in 2007, he began what continues to be a rewarding career with the Boy Scouts of America, where he currently serves as District Director for the Pony Express Council. Erik enjoys running, and has completed 9 marathons, although he now gets more enjoyment from shorter races.

Erik married Christy in 2016 and together they raise Jackson (16) and Maggie (14). Erik and Christy enjoy travelling, good Indian food, and volunteering to lead Cub Scout Pack 30 and Scouts BSA Troop 30, where Maggie and several of her friends are members. Erik and Christy are Paul Harris Society members and Major Donors to The Rotary Foundation.
