Rotary International Holds 2015 Convention

Since 2010, Michael Kuzniewski has served as superintendent of J. Sterling Morton High School District 201 in Cicero, Illinois. Outside of his professional pursuits, Michael Kuzniewski works closely with several community groups, including his local Rotary Club.

Recently, more than 14,500 Rotary members from over 150 countries gathered in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the 2015 Rotary International Convention. The four-day event, which took place June 6-9 at the Anhembi Convention Center, gave attendees the opportunity to form partnerships with other Rotary members, celebrate Rotary’s recent successes, and learn about new Rotarian projects.

In addition to networking and learning activities, the 2015 Rotary Convention included presentations from several renowned speakers, including Dr. Oscar Arias Sanchez, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and the former president of Costa Rica. The event wrapped up with a speech from Rotary International president K.R. Rivindran and a performance featuring Brazilian pop singer Ivete Sangalo.

Following the success of the 2015 Rotary International Convention, Rotary organizers are already busy planning next year’s event, taking place May 28-June 1, 2016, in Seoul, South Korea. For more information, visit
