Barbara Perlman-Whyman and Andrew Whyman newest club members!
At a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset Barbara Perlman-Whyman and  Andrew Whyman were inducted as the club’s newest members.   Barbara and Andrew were inducted into the club by Assistant District Governor Marti Wukelic and they were sponsored by Past President Mariko Higashi.
Barbara grew up in Detroit, Michigan before, during and after WWII in a large, extended family who universally believed that involvement in community was not a choice, but a way of life. Over her long career became a political philosopher, a teacher, school psychologist, professor, social-clinical psychologist, political activist, environmentalist, and national conservationist. She was elected President of the National Association of Conservation Districts.  Her first visit to Maui was in 1964 and now she and her husband own a home near the Kapalua airport and live part time on Maui.  Barbara looks forward to continuing the opportunity to serve the community as well as enjoying the friendships with the club members.
Andrew was born and raised in New York City and on Long Island. He attended school at the University of Michigan, medical school at Stanford, and postgraduate training at Yale University. He served as Vice chair of the Department of Psychiatry at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. He served on the governor's Blue Ribbon opiate task force in Nevada. He also founded the Washoe County substance abuse committee. Andrew states: “Assisting others who are less lucky and or less fortunate than myself is the main reason why I joined Rotary.”
