Chris Weston, a member of the Columbia Sertoma Club, has been voted President of the national Sertoma organization for 2012-2013. Sertoma, with more than 20,000 members nationally and $20 million raised for various charities, places a particular focus on children’s charities and speech and hearing issues.

The first legacy President in Sertoma’s history, Chris follows in the footsteps of his father, C. Tucker Weston, who served as International President in 1959-60.

As he leads the organization, Chris has committed to addressing two key areas – the need to grow the organization by adding more new members and clubs and the need to create greater awareness of Sertoma and educate more of the public on its national hearing health mission.

Chris attended the Citadel where he earned a degree in education. He is married to Anne, a graduate of Duke University and an educator who now serves as the Provost and Upper School Head at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School in Columbia. He has two daughters, Sarah and Drayton.
