Introducing the World Affairs Seminar Students
 
On April 12, 2021, the two New Berlin students that were selected for sponsorship to attend the World Affairs Seminar were announced at the New Berlin School Board of Education meeting held in the Eisenhower Commons.  They were introduced by Kelli Kwiatkowski, Director of Secondary Teaching and Learning, and Arthur Angove from Rotary Club of New Berlin.  The student-delegates for this prestigious event will be Faith Lopez from New Berlin West and Laura Stadler from New Berlin Eisenhower.  Congratulations Faith and Laura!
 
World Affairs Seminar is an initiative of Rotary District 6270, which comprises most of the clubs in Wisconsin. This event is designed to create global leaders and citizens through an international seminar with an innovative, rigorous program. The course is typically held at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wis., and involves high school students from across the US and around the world. Due to Covid, World Affairs Seminar has gone fully virtual for 2021.  The theme for this year's program, which runs June 19-25, is "Cities: Urban Life in a Changing World”.
 
World Affairs Seminar is open to students of New Berlin West and New Berlin Eisenhower. If your child is interested in applying for the 2022 session, have him or her speak with their school's guidance counselor.

  • The WHO African region has been officially certified free of wild poliovirus. This certification comes four years after Nigeria – the last polio-endemic country in Africa – recorded its final case of wild polio.
 
  • This milestone is an incredible public health achievement for Rotary members, the African region, millions of health workers, and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners, and a huge step forward on the road to global polio eradication.
 
  • Rotary members have played an invaluable role in the effort to rid the African region of wild polio. We should be proud of all the hard work that we’ve done to eliminate the wild poliovirus in nearly every country in the world.
     
  • By raising funds for polio eradication, advocating with world governments and national and local leaders, holding events and fundraisers for World Polio Day, and raising awareness, Rotarians in the African region and around the world have made an indelible impact in the fight to eradicate polio.
    • There are Rotary clubs in all 47 countries in the African region, and the region is home to almost 32,000 Rotary members in nearly 1400 Rotary clubs.
       
    • Rotary and its members have contributed nearly US$890 million to eliminate polio in the African region.
 
  • The success of African countries, Rotary members, and partners in eliminating the wild poliovirus throughout the region is proof that polio eradication is possible.
 
  • Our victory over wild poliovirus in the African region represents incredible progress, but as long as polio exists anywhere, it remains a threat everywhere.
 
  • To overcome the remaining hurdles to eradication, it is critical that Rotary members remain committed to polio eradication and continue raising $50 million a year so we can keep children protected in Africa and eliminate the wild poliovirus in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
  • With continued support from Rotary, donors, country governments and GPEI partners we are confident that we can beat polio for good.
