About Dale Basham
Dale Basham began his career as a high school English, speech, and drama teacher. After directing the high school theatre company for fifteen years, he began to realize that guidance counselors were not advising students of the importance of the arts. He returned to Ball State University to study Guidance and Counseling and became a guidance counselor. After ten years, he began to lament school leaders’ lack of appreciation for the arts and the role of guidance counselors in the overall operation of a high school. Basham returned, once again, to Ball State University to study School Leadership. Dale became a high school principal. After retiring, he was elected to serve on the Muncie School Board of Trustees.
Dale’s heart for serving his community led him to join the Muncie Rotary Club. He was elected president of the club in 2014. Since then, he has Co-Chaired the 2016 Rotary District 6560 Conference, directed The Rotary Foundation Fundraising Team, chaired of the Rotary International District 6560 Conference at The Indianapolis Children’s Museum in April 2017, and chaired the RI District 6560 High School Speech Contest. In July 2018, Dale was inaugurated as Governor of Rotary International District 6560. He has inspired audiences around the world with his heart of service and his powerful messages about production, presentation, education, diversity, and inclusion.
Basham currently serves as Chairman of the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, Business-Education Partnership, President of the Muncie Fire Merit Commission, and Past-President of the Muncie Downtown Development Partnership.
