Michael J. Kuenzler
Michael Kuenzler is an alumnus of Lowell High School and it’s there that his roots grew in the Greater Lowell community. Mike enjoyed team sports as a member of the varsity football team and developed the understanding of individual performance for the benefit of the team as a member of the varsity wrestling team. He continued his affiliation with the wrestling program and would teach those same lessons to LHS and Greater Lowell Technical High School students as an Assistant Coach from 1982-1988 and as Head Coach from 1989-1997. Mike's coaching career included several CAC championships at GLTHS and was highlighted by another state title in 1996 with LHS. That year, he was named Lowell Sun and Boston Globe Division 1 "Coach of the Year".
Mike attended University of Massachusetts and studied Criminal Justice. The program inspired him to become a law enforcement officer and he was elected president of his class at the New England Regional Police Institution (NERPI). After he graduated with honors from the Police Academy in 1986, Mike joined the Lowell Police Department (LPD) and began a distinguished career first as a patrolman and then as Juvenile Bureau Detective. As detective, Mike investigated sex crimes against children and was a tireless advocate for the rights of victims. His commitment was recognized with several awards from the District Attorney's office.
The sense of community commitment and acceptance of his responsibility to continue to educate youths truly took root during this time of Mike's life. As founder of the Lowell D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program, he helped develop and nurture the growth of the highly acclaimed program that gives children the skills to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs, and violence. For these efforts, Mike received the "The Shawmut Bank Award". Shawmut created this statewide award to honor an individual who created a program that positively affected the youth and families of an entire community. D.A.R.E. America recognized Mike nationally for creating a model D.A.R.E. Program Curriculum for the Lowell school system. He traveled throughout the country to introduce the program to our nation's school districts. Previously, the program had proven so successful it was now implemented in 75 of our nation's schools and in more than 43 countries around the world. Many of the students in the Greater Lowell D.A.R.E. Program became role models and today, those students are business owners, teachers, coaches, and community servants who (along with their parents) still stay in touch with him. Mike was a 12-year member of the Lowell police department and received several Commendations and Citations for "Bravery" and "For Going Above and Beyond the Call of Duty". He was the 1993 recipient of the IBPO (International Brotherhood of Police Officers) Award of Valor and that same year nominated for the prestigious "George Hanna Award", the highest Medal of Honor a Massachusetts law enforcement officer can receive.
In 1998, Mike left LPD and started his own business - All Sports Promotions - to uniform and equip young athletes and to provide corporate promotional products and decorated apparel. He has grown the business through his vision, endless energy, focus on customer service, and diversifying his customer base - which includes individuals, physicians, hospitals, schools, athletic leagues, municipalities, law enforcement, and businesses of every size including Fortune 500 companies. In 2003, Mike demonstrated his true entrepreneurial spirit with the acquisition of the adjacent property adding nearly 8,000 square feet of retail and inventory space and a full-service tailor shop. His second business, Heroes Uniform & Supply Company, is aptly named to honor former colleagues and all "heroes" in Greater Lowell and throughout New England.
He has remained committed to community service where he has spearheaded the efforts to raise more than $4 million for local charities and initiatives. Mike was an Executive Committee Member for ten years at the Greater Lowell Boys &Girls Club, past President and presently a Trustee. He has been recognized for his involvement in helping prevent the Opioid Crisis along with high levels of fund-raising after 911 for the New York police and fire departments. Mike is also a generous contributor - both personally and at the corporate level - to many causes and events in the greater Lowell area. Also, Mike was previously appointed the Saints Foundation and Vice President of Development at Saints Medical Center.
In addition to being the President and CEO of two Lowell-based companies, Mike and his wife Cindy recently became sole owners of Four Oaks Country Club. Four Oaks Country Club is an 18-hole Championship Golf Course located in the heart of the Merrimack Valley. With breathtaking views and upscale conditions, the daily fee golf course offers an enjoyable experience for both novice and expert players.

Mike and his wife Cindy, reside in Dracut with their sons Michael Jr., Cody, and daughter Nicole.
Cindy Kuenzler graduated Cum Laude from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 1991 with a degree in marketing. As the mother of one son, Michael, she owned and operated Kuenzler's Kitchen and Catering from 1993 to 1998. During that time she also became the proud mother of two more wonderful children; another son, Cody, and a daughter, Nicole.
She soon took on a new venture, All Sports Heroes, along with her husband and partner, Mike Kuenzler. All Sports Heroes is a woman owned, WBE certified company that provides corporate promotional products, athletic equipment and uniforms, Police, Fire and EMT uniforms, duty gear, body armor and tactical products. With in-house screen printing, embroidery, and a trophy and recognition department, they have total control of their production time.
In 2012, Cindy also became the owner of Four Oaks Country Club, an 18 hole championship golf course located in Dracut, MA. Four Oaks boasts an event facility overlooking the golf course with spectacular views of the Merrimack Valley, as well as an Italian restaurant, Grazie, serving authentic Italian dishes prepared by a master chef.
