Ask Dr. Eric Jack what makes a person successful, and you will quickly understand the character of the man. Jack, who was recently named president elect of the Rotary Club of Birmingham for 2018-19, answers the question by recalling the qualities of Abraham Lincoln, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa. He speaks of everyday people who sacrifice to serve their families and communities, as well as leaders, followers and frontline employees.
