New Member



Denise Rudnicki-Holmes was born and raised right here in Riverside, the Forest Ridge neighborhood.  Denise graduated from Fairborn High School where she lives today.  She earned her bachelors in biology from Wright State and a masters in applied behavioral science from Wright State.  Denise works at the Echoing Hills Village behind Stebbins and has been there for a year now.  She has been working in her field for 10 years.  She joins Rotary because her boss encouraged all the department heads to get involved in community and practice servant leadership.  Denise has 2 daughters, Sidnee who is 10 and Alex in kindergarten.  Sidnee is a member of the Raider swim team and so much of her time is devoted there.  Denise is also an athlete competing (for fun) in the worldwide organization called Spartan.  This is a military style obstacle course race.  She completed the Spartan tri-fecta last year which means she completed the sprint/super & beast courses. And this year her goal is to double that! She races in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan and where ever else she can go.  Denise is a human services, social worker; working with adults with developmental disabilities.  Her Rotary sponsor is Sandy Brubaker and she will be pinned by Sandy.

She entered Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and graduated in June, 1965 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. In August of 1965, she married William E. Watson of Dayton. She soon began a familiar lifestyle of military dependent when Bill entered the Air Force as a Second Lieutenant, Aircraft Maintenance Officer. With his military service completed, Sandy and Bill settled down in Beavercreek where they have remained. Sandy started a career in banking which led her through a lot of hard work to series of promotions from a teller, to head teller, branch manager, manager of several Beavercreek bank branches, and finally to Sales and Marketing Director for BankOne of Dayton. Sandy learned that the Position of Executive Director of the Beavercreek Chamber of Commerce would be coming available, and desiring a change from banking, she accepted the position in 1992. She remained with the Chamber until her and her husband’s mutual retirement in January, 2005. She remained active in the Rotary Club and many other organizations. She leaves her husband, Bill, and many friends to mourn her passing.
