Coach inspires Rotarians at international convention

Lancer women’s basketball head coach Chantal Vallée drew a standing ovation for an address on building a successful team to win against all odds to more than 14,000 attendees at the Rotary International Convention, held in Melbourne, Australia, at the end of May.

The convention is a platform for global leaders, professionals, and visionaries to exchange ideas on creating change in their communities and beyond. In 2022, the service organization elected UWindsor alumna Jennifer Jones (BA 1991) the first female president in its 115-year history.
