Anne Matthews, Ph.D.

If you had the opportunity to speak with Anne Matthews of Columbia, SC, you would know what a charming Southern lady she is. Takes you right back to the "Gone with the Wind" movie. My husband and I had the pleasure of dining with her at the Zone 33-34 Institute in Raleigh, NC in October 1998, when she was the Governor Nominee from District 7770. Ever since, we have been meeting at the Zone Institutes and also when she came to speak at our District Foundation Seminars. 

Dr. Anne L. Matthews is president of Matthews and Associates, an educational firm in Columbia, SC. She has three earned degrees, including a doctorate from the University of South Carolina. She is an educator by profession, an author of business texts, and a public speaker. She served as president of several national educational organizations and served on numerous boards, including her undergraduate alma mater, Coker College. She is the recipient of several honors including ones from the YWCA, Girl Scouts of America, key to Lake City, SC, Distinguished Alumni Award, Hall of Fame from Florence County School District 3, National Business Education’s Distinguished Service Award, and Leadership SC. She received two appointments from President Ronald Reagan. Anne has spoken and/or consulted in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and 20 foreign countries on educational issues and/or the Rotary Foundation. (Shown on the left with RGHF DG 13/14 Lorraine Angelino, who inducted Anne into RGHF.
