Changing of the Guard:
Tinley Park-Frankfort Rotary Club installs new president
A new leader has stepped forward to guide the Tinley Park-Frankfort Rotary Club and to raise awareness about its global, national and local efforts.
Margaret Semmer, a Mokena resident and parent of two students at Lincoln Way East High School, was installed July 12 as president of the Tinley Park-Frankfort Rotary Club. She replaces Karen Wegrzyn who completed her third, one-year term in June.
“I’m looking forward to continuing the efforts of the Tinley Park-Frankfort Rotary to offer scholarships to local high school students while expanding our work to serve the community,” said Semmer, an experienced community college educator, currently serving as Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs at Ivy Tech Community College, Northwest Indiana.
