Huether Conference Keynote Speakers:

Brother Robert Schieler, FSC, is the Superior General of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Prior to being elected as Superior General in 2014, Brother Robert served as General Councilor for the then-United States-Toronto Region from 2007-2014 and as Visitor of the then-Baltimore District from 2001-2007. Before becoming Visitor, Brother Robert was the director of education for the United States-Toronto Region. He also served as executive secretary for the Regional Education Board and College Presidents Association. Prior to these roles, Brother Robert served for seven years as Assistant Visitor and director of education for the Baltimore District. He also served in the Philippines for 11 years. Brother Robert took the habit on September 1, 1968, in Ammendale, Maryland.


John Donahue-Grossman has touched the hearts and tickled the funny bones of more than two million young people, families and educators over more than 30 years as a youth minister, high school teacher, retreat director and development director. Throughout that time, John presented meaningful and dynamic programs to schools, churches and service organizations. One of John’s proudest moments was in 2004 when his many years of portraying a homeless man to fight intolerance and injustice was recognized by the Southern Poverty Law Center with a certificate, signed by Rosa Parks, and his name engraved on the Wall of Tolerance in Montgomery, Alabama. John has been honored with the Joliet Diocesan Bishop Sartain Award, an Apostolic Blessing from Pope John Paul II, the Columbian Squires Award from the Knights of Columbus, and the Faith & Zeal Award from La Salle Manor Retreat Center.
