The Rotary Club of Shepherdstown has inducted Andrew McMillan as a new member.

The induction ceremony was held at the Club’s March 4 regular breakfast meeting at the Bavarian Inn.

Andrew relocated to Shepherdstown in August, 2012, to become the Chief Operating Officer for the Jefferson Distributing Company in Martinsburg.

Andrew earned a B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1994 and a PhD in Chemistry from Emory University in 2000. He worked until 2005 as a Research Scientist with NASA at Moffett Field in California. He then moved into the venture capital field where he was affiliated with a number of firms operating in the biochemistry field specializing in pharmaceuticals.

Andrew and his wife, Kakie (also a UNC graduate) and their three young children reside in Cress Creek.

Both Andrew and Kakie are active in a number of organizations and Andrew maintains his involvement with UNC through serving as a member of the Graduate School Advisory Board and the Chemistry Department Advisory Board. Both of their families have a history of community involvement and charitable giving.
