Greenville, S.C. — Smith Moore Leatherwood LLP is pleased to announce that Kurt Rozelsky, a partner in the Greenville office of Smith Moore Leatherwood, has been appointed vice chair of the 2016 United Way of Greenville County Annual Campaign.
United Way of Greenville County brings people and resources together to build a "Cycle of Success" where all children start school prepared to learn and go on to graduate, well-educated graduates find good jobs and create stable homes, and children from stable homes continue the cycle because they start school on track and prepared for success. In the past year, more than 107,000 people advanced along the Cycle in one or more of the four key areas: Life Essentials, School Readiness, High School Graduation or Financial Stability.
Last year the Campaign raised $16.7 million, the most money ever raised by a United Way campaign in South Carolina, to promote the Cycle of Success in Greenville County. Rozelsky has been an active volunteer with the United Way since 1995, having served as a Loaned Executive, Chair of the Young Philanthropists, Palmetto Society Board Member and Campaign Cabinet Area Leader. Following his year as vice chair, Rozelsky will serve as the 2017 Campaign Chair.
Rozelsky is a member of the firm's litigation group and focuses his practice on commercial litigation, product liability claims, professional liability, class actions, transportation matters and other technical and expert driven litigation. His professional affiliations include the American Bar Association, the South Carolina Bar Association, State Bar of Georgia, Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, American Board of Trial Advocates and DRI: Voice of the Defense Bar. He is a member of the board of The Family Effect and a past board member of Public Education Partners of Greenville County, Compass of Carolina, Inc., Greenville Literacy Association and Leadership Greenville. He received his bachelor's degree from the University of Virginia and his juris doctor cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law.
