The Rotary International District 6270 Nominating Committee is pleased to announce the selection of Dawn Heath-Fiedler to serve as the District Governor for the 2026 - 2027 Rotary year.

Dawn became a member of the Rotary Club of Delavan-Darien in February 2015 after being told that she needed to join Rotary. The moment she stepped into her first meeting, she felt an immediate sense of belonging. Due to a change in employers, Dawn later transferred to the Rotary Club of Elkhorn.

As part of her preparations as a president-nominee, Dawn attended the 2017 District Conference. During a workshop on human trafficking, her life took a new direction. Inspired by the experience, she founded the 501(c)3 non-profit Join the Movement Events, Inc. (JTM), initially focused on raising awareness of human trafficking in rural communities.

Following her term as club president, Dawn took on the role of Assistant Governor (AG) for the Rotary Clubs in Walworth County. Six months later, she married Peter and relocated to Minnesota. In Rotary District 5950, she volunteered to be the AG for their eClubs and became a charter member of the Rotary Club of District 5950 Ending Human Trafficking.

During the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, living in a new location made it challenging to meet new people due to shutdowns. Support from her friends at the Elkhorn Rotary Club, through calls and emails, helped alleviate loneliness. When the time came to move back to Wisconsin, that was an easy decision ... Elkhorn. Upon her return to the Rotary Club of Elkhorn, she resumed her role as AG and is now concluding her third year, preparing to hand over the position to her successor.

Please join in congratulating Dawn for being selected to be our future District Governor!
