Members of Kinver Rotary Club have elected Clive Corbett of Mount Pleasant, Kingswinford, as their new president, succeeding Rtn Ian Maddock who completed a second term in the office.
Clive, who joined the Kinver Club in 2007, recently retired as head teacher at Pershore High School, a position he has held since 2002. While working at Pershore he took a keen interest in the life of the town, regularly visiting the town’s Rotary club, who presented him with a Service Recognition Award to mark his 15 years as Head,
His contribution to town life was also recognised by the Town Council earlier this year when one of the roads on a new housing development opposite his school was named Corbett Close.
Outside school, Clive has been a life-long supporter of Wolverhampton Wanderers, so much so that he has written two books about the club. He also writes for the Black Country Bugle, while his other sporting interests cover cricket and golf.
In addition to taking the helm at Kinver Rotary Club, where he is to support the Place2Be Charity during his year in office, Clive intends to continue researching family history, gardening, walking and undertaking consultancy work.
