council, county board and board of education, he was perhaps best known
as a 20-year representative in the State Assembly, where he was an advocate
for locating the new UW campus in Green Bay. His son told the Green
Bay Press-Gazette, "(They) got it here and that created a lot of jobs,
and meant a lot to a lot of these students through the years." Go to the
Anne Kok commemorated
Assembly passed a resolution in March commending the life and
work of the late Anne Kok, a social work faculty member who died
in a car accident in February. The resolution noted her public
service to the world (Peace Corps and international outreach,
to Wisconsin (as a social work educator), and to Door County (as
a citizen and former director of a local crisis center).
