New master's degree in education has first graduates

GREEN BAY - An innovative new master's degree program serving working teachers of the region has its first two graduates.

Mary Bowers, president of Reading Connections Inc., of Green Bay and Mary Wyman, a language arts teacher at Edison Middle School in Green Bay, were the first to receive degrees from the master's program in Applied Leadership for Teaching and Learning. They crossed the stage at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay spring commencement on May 20.

Wyman has successfully defended her thesis, "Self-Assessment and its Impact on Learning." Bowers will complete her degree work this summer.

The UW-Green Bay master's degree was launched in the fall of 1998, as the first in the state and one of the first in the nation built specifically upon the competencies outlined by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

The 30-credit UW-Green Bay master's degree consists of a 21-credit core of courses with a 9-credit area of emphasis. It requires a competency-based portfolio and learning-based master's thesis. Program goals include fostering each teacher's ability to provide leadership in the improvement of learning for students; preparing the teacher to design, implement and evaluate school-based and learner-focused research; and integrating the teacher's own classroom experiences into the course of study.

The new master's degree is just one element of the Partnership for Learning, a collaboration with businesses, civic leaders, parents and dozens of local school districts. Other aspects of the partnership include programs to offer professional development certificates and enhance research or mentoring opportunities.

New grad Hirst, 77, will make history at UW-Green Bay

GREEN BAY - When Roger Hirst participates in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay commencement exercises on May 20, he will have completed a degree that was nearly 60 years in the making.

The 77 year-old Hirst will become the oldest at Green Bay and one of the oldest graduates in the history of the University of Wisconsin System history to receive his diploma.

In 1941, when Hirst was 18 years old and a high school graduate, he didn't have an opportunity to enter college. Instead he was whisked away to defend his country in World War II and then again for the Korean conflict.

When he returned home, providing for his family became his top priority. But following retirement from a long career with Wisconsin Public Service in 1987, he became curious upon seeing an advertisement for UW-Green Bay's Extended Degree Program, which incorporates study both at-home and on campus. He decided "what have I got to lose?" He took a course, then another, and another, finding the experience challenging and invigorating.

Despite a few setbacks, the end result is a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis in political science, which culminates as he crosses the stage come Saturday.

Admittedly, it will be a special moment for Hirst, but also for his wife, Kathleen, his five children, his classmates and his instructors. "The 'youngsters,' are more excited than he is," says Kathleen, referring to their five adult children.

Hirst has made an impact within the University walls, earning the reputation of being "somewhat of a character." As a student, he challenged his professors, and awed classmates with his lifetime of experiences.

"He is terrific," says Prof. Bill Laatsch, "an inspiration to all of us, students and faculty members. He is just so alert in mind and in spirit and so well read. He has an enormous thirst for knowledge. His contributions in no way dominate, but when he does say something it is always something of value. His solid foundation reflects his wide experiences."

Hirst reciprocates the compliments.

"I am very happy," he says. "The classes were so interesting and the professors are wonderful - Professors Laatsch and Littig and Sweet - I could go on and on. I loved the interaction with the other students, and the professors even like to be challenged. Some people don't."

Hirst's first course, Basic College Writing, inspired him to be a regular "People's Forum" contributor on the opinion page of a local newspaper.

"Some people only write about a certain subject, I cover lots of different topics," Hirst says. "I call it my irritation of the month." Topics such as freedom of speech and OPEC oil prices inspired past letters. His recently submitted one is about "myths that aren't true."

"People used to adamantly believe the world was flat. Look outside, it looks flat, but it's not true. Last month I wrote about OPEC. I said that they are the rulers. Gas prices are going to be whatever OPEC says they are. If you want to save money on gas, slow down, consolidate your trips."

Hirst is also an avid reader, having subscriptions with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the New York Times and the Press-Gazette.

"I always carry a book with me," Hirst says. "You never know when you are going to have to sit and wait. I love biographies and history. Dee (Sweet) assigned us a fabulous book on Native American poetry. It's very interesting. I don't understand some of it, but it's very good."

As enthused about the Extended Degree Program as he is, the coursework hasn't always come easy. Kathleen recalls some tough times.

"There was a point when he almost dropped out," she says. "He was struggling with a math course and just didn't think he could do it. Then we saw an advertisement for a tutor (Sue Ricecezk) in our tiny paper, the Kewaunee Star, and she helped him get through.

"The unusual thing was that we never saw a tutor advertised in that paper previously, and we haven't seen one since."

Most courses, though, like his most recent, American Ethnic Literature, have been interesting, thought provoking, and well within his capabilities. "This course has given me a new perspective on the mistreatment of Native American people," he says. "I had no idea about all this stuff. It's a terrible, terrible, thing.

"I was born and raised in Chicago and went to school with person of many different ethnic heritages. We played together, and I never gave it another thought. When I was asked what my heritage was, I innocently responded, 'I'm an American,' and I had to go home and ask.

"I wasn't exposed to prejudice until I was in the service. One day I was walking down the street and I was approached by a policeman who said, 'What are you doing, you're walking down the wrong side of the sidewalk.' I looked up and realized I was the only white guy walking on that side of the street. The white people were all on the other side. I told him I didn't mind, but he told me that he did, so I crossed the street. After all, he was the police.'"

It is stories like those that have enriched the classrooms Hirst has shared with younger students the past 13 years.

After graduating, he is looking forward to spending more time writing, and volunteering with two service groups, the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Kathleen, his wife of nearly 56 years and his chief typist and editor, is encouraging him to write his memoirs.

The actual commencement ceremony, he says, won't mean as much to him as it does to those who will be searching for a job.

Don't let him fool you. That will be one proud moment for this older, well-read class-favorite - and graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

First Hmong nurse wants to give back to her culture

GREEN BAY - Chua Xiong will graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay this Saturday (May 20) with a bachelor's degree in nursing, even though many people of her culture remain skeptical and even unsupportive of women who choose to continue their education.

In the traditional Hmong culture, pursuit of higher education among Hmong women was not looked upon favorably, with the women and their families sometimes subject to belittling and ridicule.

Despite significant obstacles Xiong became a registered nurse through courses at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. She then chose to further her education with advanced courses and baccalaureate nursing studies at UW-Green Bay. She will graduate from the UW-Green Bay's degree-completion program in nursing with honors. She will continue to commit, as she has since 1997, to making health care issues less trying for the people of her heritage.

Xiong estimates the Hmong population in the Green Bay area is around 5,000, yet she is the only Hmong registered nurse in the area. She is employed by Bellin Hospital and called on frequently to assist in the communication efforts between healthcare professionals and Hmong patients who do not speak English.

Her work is greatly valued.

"I would love to have a couple more of her," says her supervisor, Donna Zelazoski, the Maternity Team Leader at Bellin Hospital.

"It is disappointing when you want to give appropriate care and be compassionate to your patients, but you are unable to communicate with them," Zelazoski said. "She is able to help the Hmong women while they are being admitted and then in the birthing and post-partum stages. In addition she has helped the staff to increase our awareness and knowledge about the Hmong culture. And she even helped us develop an instructional video in the Hmong language on infant care practices.

"She is a wonderful addition to our staff, and I don't just say that because she can speak the Hmong language. She is very caring and compassionate and has an excellent relationship with her coworkers. Sometimes I have to tell her she's got too many things going."

Something Xiong readily admits. On her down time from work and school, she takes care of her three children, aged six months, 9 years and 12 years, with the support of her husband, Ma, whom she lavishes with credit for his efforts.

"My culture does not really value females being educated," she says. "I try to get my culture to see things differently. In the United States you have to have an education. I take my education and the opportunity to be a role model very seriously.

"I wouldn't be able to do this without my husband's support. I have a great deal of respect for him for being strong enough to stand in support of me despite the cultural pressures."

Xiong knows first-hand about the struggles of Hmong women. As expected by her culture and her immediate family, she quit high school at the age of 17. But through self-determination she went back and earned her high school equivalency. As she began to work as an interpreter in the public schools, she was encouraged by teachers to continue with her schooling. As she interpreted for family members who required medical attention, she recognized the cultural conflicts between physicians and nurses and the Hmong, and saw the need for someone who could help bridge the gap.

In Northeastern Wisconsin, that someone is she.

"I believe in quality care for all patients," Xiong says. "But the minority patients, especially the Hmong, tend to be very passive and not vocal. So often their needs aren't being met."

As for her immediate future, Xiong is helping the staff at Bellin to translate much of their written material into the Hmong language. In fall she will begin pursuit of her Master of Science in Nursing Degree in the hopes of teaching some day.

So despite comments from her friends that she is becoming "too Americanized," and despite the condescending remarks that she and her husband endure from much of the community, Xiong forges on.

It's her attempt at bettering the lives of her children and her community.

Diplomas for 600, honors for students and faculty to be distributed Saturday

GREEN BAY - Nearly 600 University of Wisconsin-Green Bay students are eligible to graduate in commencement ceremonies at noon Saturday, May 20, on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Drive. The event will be in the grassy amphitheater on the main campus entrance drive. In the event of rain, ceremonies will be moved inside the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

Chancellor Mark L. Perkins will preside over an event that will recognize the achievements of students, acknowledge an outstanding student award recipient and a student speaker, honor retiring faculty, and welcome a speaker who is a UW-Green Bay alumna.

Speaker Diane L. Ford, vice president and controller of Wisconsin Public Service, earned her 1975 UW-Green Bay degree in Managerial Accounting. She is active in many professional and community organizations, and has received awards for her work with the YMCA. She was named the 1999 Outstanding Business Alumna at UW-Oshkosh, where she completed a Master of Business Administration degree.

The UW-Green Bay Alumni Association selected Ryan C. Johnson, Green Bay, to receive the Outstanding Student Award. Johnson won't be present to receive it, because he is finishing his studies in Mexico, where he spent his final semester. Johnson completed two majors - in Human Biology and Spanish - and will attend medical school.

Student speaker Timothy Marc Skinner, Manitowoc, also earned his degree in Human Biology. He had an exercise science emphasis and will pursue advanced studies to prepare for a career as a physical therapist.

Titles of "Emeritus" will be conferred on seven individuals who are retiring from the faculty. Carol A. Pollis, dean of liberal arts and sciences, and a member of the Social Change and Development and Sociology faculties, will be named Dean Emerita.

Professor Emeritus titles will be awarded to Arthur L. Cohrs, Communication and the Arts and Music; Donald W. Larmouth, Communication and the Arts and Communication Processes; and Richard J. Stevens, Human Biology and Biology faculties. Titles of Associate Professor Emeritus will go to Susan M. Kline-Heim, Communication and the Arts and Theatre; Lorraine Noll, Nursing; and Nikitas L. Petrakopoulos, Natural and Applied Sciences and Mathematics.

Commencement guests are invited to a reception immediately following the ceremony at the Weidner Center terrace and foyer.

Faculty members noted for 'Teaching at Its Best'

GREEN BAY - Four University of Wisconsin-Green Bay faculty members have received "Teaching at Its Best" awards for spring semester 2000. The awards, given by the Faculty Development Council, recognize individual faculty efforts to enhance learning for UW-Green Bay students.

The recipients are:

Aeron Haynie, an assistant professor of Humanistic Studies and Literature, who keeps a teacher's journal to help her improve her course organization and teaching strategies; Andrew Kersten, an assistant professor of Humanistic Studies and History, who encouraged secondary education students in the senior-level History Seminar to produce a Worldwide Web-enhanced or CD-ROM-based learning module instead of the traditional research paper; William Shay, a professor of Information Science and Computer Science, whose assignment in an upper-level course required students to work in groups to design the informational content of a database management system; and Karin Suesser, an assistant professor of Human Development and Psychology, who devised a "family culture scale" to help students in the Counseling Across the Lifespan course explore their own family culture.

Recipients receive a certificate and an honorarium.

Heirloom sale offers new varieties, more plants

GREEN BAY -- New peppers, new tomatoes, and more of them.

In short, that's the news on the fifth annual University of Wisconsin-Green Bay heirloom vegetable plant sale set for 9 a.m. Saturday, May 20 at the Laboratory Sciences building greenhouse on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr. The sale continues through 6 p.m., or until plants are gone. If stock remains, the sale resumes during the same hours on Sunday, May 21.

The plants are $1 each, except for a few mature, blooming and fruiting peppers that overwintered in the greenhouse. They'll be sold as pot plants.

The 2000 sale offers 100 different varieties of tomatoes, 60 peppers (40 hot and 20 sweet), seven members of the cabbage family, five eggplants, and tomatillos, the small "husk tomatoes" so important in Mexican cuisine. Sale founder and organizer Jeffrey Nekola, an associate professor of Natural and Applied Sciences, says he and student workers have started 30 percent more plants than last year.

The 1999 sale sold out and the demand surprised even Nekola. "We were wiped out in the first day," he recalls. "The support was overwhelming." In previous years, the sale ran two days and left-over plants were composted.

The sale supports a lecture series that brings scientists from all over the country to speak at UW-Green Bay. As the sale grows, additional profits go to student scholarships.

Sale 2000 includes a greater variety of sweet peppers, more really, really hot peppers, and new tomatoes, including a Brandywine with a "pedigree" that can be traced to the original Brandywine offered by the Johnson and Stokes Seed Co. of Philadelphia in 1889.

"We've responded to demand for sweet peppers by doubling the number this year as well as having more varieties," says Nekola. He likes one new to the sale called Georgescu Chocolate, which originates in Rumania. "It's brown on the outside with a salmon-red interior and it's a good addition to pepper relish," says Nekola. There's a supply of the Wisconsin-bred Wisconsin Lakes pepper, popular in previous sales. Several of the sweet peppers are paprika types, such as Chervena Chujski from Bulgaria and Rabbit Mouth from Hungary.

"More" describes the hot peppers, too. "This year we have full flats of 14 different named habanero varieties," says Nekola. They include three with miniature fruits: Bode, with marble-sized peppers; Maraba, with half-inch long fruits; and Uvilla grande with tiny flame-shaped peppers. The hot pepper array includes Ft. Prescott Tepin, a wild pepper from Arizona that Nekola calls a "prototype" for developed pepper varieties.

On the tomato front, one of the new offerings is Speckled Roman, which Nekola says was the "real find" of his 1999 garden. It's a big, sausage-shaped chance development from a Chicago-area grower that Nekola describes as dark red with bright orange squiggles. "It's juicy, sweet, and spectacular," he says. Other colorful tomatoes include three that show starburst patterns when sliced: Pearl's Yellow Pink and Burrachs Favorite, both from Appalachia, and Oaxacan Jewel, from Mexico.

Among new red tomatoes, Nekola is offering a variety that he brought back from a trip to the Caribbean. He describes Tobago Red as "a good keeper."

Nekola says he expects the Glick's Brandywine tomato to be similar to the Brandywines offered in the past, but this one can be traced to the seed distributor for the company that originally sold Brandywines. The strain was kept alive for 100 years by the Amish in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Except for the cabbages, Nekola grows out all of the vegetables himself in order to get seeds to start plants for the sale. His personal garden this year will have 100 different peppers and 45 new tomatoes to provide seeds for 2001.

Nekola acquires seeds from around the world. He's a member of Seed Savers Exchange in Decorah, Iowa, which gives him access to a thousand other members who have seeds to swap. He tries to connect with people who have "handed down" seeds, and visits farmers markets and ethnic food stores. Friends and colleagues bring him seeds from their travels.

"What we're really doing here is more than just 'fun with vegetables'," Nekola says. "What we're doing is conservation." He explains that once seeds are no longer commercially available, varieties may be kept alive only by individual growers. "What stands between a variety and extinction may be just one or two people," he says. As a conservation biologist, Nekola is concerned about protecting plant gene diversity for the future. Recently, Nekola began researching background on all the varieties of vegetables he offers. In addition to learning about their origin and history, he says, "I'm getting good stories."

Though the plants have a variety of origins, they're all described as "heirlooms." Nekola explains that the term isn't applied consistently. It may describe "old-fashioned" varieties, vegetables grown by Native Americans before the arrival of Europeans, or new strains developed by hobbyists. The UW-Green Bay plant sale offers some of each.

On air or in class, TV meteorologist loves the weather

GREEN BAY - On the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus, WFRV-TV meteorologist Tom Mahoney is quite recognizable, in part because of his public persona, and in part because of his nearly 20-year association with the University and its students.

Since 1993, the longtime TV-5 personality has been moonlighting as instructor for the University's Introduction to Meteorology course. And loving every minute of it.

"Having to present the information on a daily basis keeps me fresh, and I appreciate that opportunity," Mahoney says.

Mahoney is one of more than 60 adjunct instructors who help handle the class load at UW-Green Bay. His appointment to the lecture-hall gig followed many years of involvement as a mentor for UW-Green Bay science students.

In fact, it was a former Mahoney intern turned radar meteorologist, Doug Streu, who recommended Mahoney for the job. Prof. Joe Moran of the Natural and Applied Sciences unit, familiar with Mahoney's credentials and years of experience supervising internships, agreed.

"Tom is an excellent example of a professional who provides a valuable link between the classroom and community," Moran says today.

"Remember the old UW-Green Bay concept of 'communiversity'? Tom is not only a practicing professional meteorologist, he also has a long-term interest and involvement in education at all levels. He has worked with K-12 teachers, pre-college students, and college-level students. He brings a very special and valuable perspective to the classroom because he deals on a daily basis with the practical side of meteorology. And some of that experience has potentially life-saving value, when you're talking about severe weather."

For Mahoney, the draw of sharing on-the-job knowledge and hands-on experience with students at the collegiate level is one of the most challenging but rewarding aspects of his career.

The challenge is working full time, making a large number of personal appearances at local charity events and schools, and teaching a course with more than 100 students. But the task is made a little lighter with the support of his family (who understands his need to sleep in on Saturdays), and management at WFRV-TV, which gives Mahoney the green light to do whatever it takes to do both jobs well.

The payback, Mahoney says, is the opportunity to see students grow and develop.

"Oh, yes, there are the kids who would rather sleep, but there are a couple whom I know are destined for great things," he says.

Two former students he is particularly proud of are Streu and Pam Wright, who is the weatherperson at KCBS of Los Angeles, considered one of the top stations in the country. Mahoney says current UW-Green Bay student Molly Mix, a WFRV intern, is another destined for a bright future. "That's what is neat," says Mahoney. "To look back and see the students you've worked with be successful. I see Molly as the next Pam Wright. She is just exceptional. I'm tickled to death for her."

Mahoney's experience and contacts can give the "Pams" and "Mollys" of the University an edge when it comes to making careers in broadcast meteorology. His humor and ability to relate to others help, too.

"As my internship supervisor, Tom does a great job of allowing autonomy in a project," says Mix. "He lets me try to figure things out on my own, but is quick to help if I need it. He's easy and fun to talk to."

Mix does the mapping and makes the slides that Mahoney will use in his show. Every once in awhile she takes a shot at the forecast and sees how it compares with Mahoney's. "I'm not too bad," she says. "Sometimes I can get pretty close."

"Pretty close" is "pretty good," Mahoney adds, joking, "Hey, if I were a professional baseball player, and I was 1 for 3, I'd be an all-star."

Mix still has two to three years to sharpen her forecasting skills. She's in her second year at UW-Green Bay but is a junior, academically. She's looking at either broadcast meteorology or theatre as possible career choices.

As for Mahoney, his career choices put him in the classroom and on the air -- where the potential audience is nearly one million viewers throughout Northeast Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula -- and make him one of the community's most-recognized figures.

"I was told that as a public figure I could expect to go through three stages," he says. "In Stage One I will go to a supermarket or restaurant and expect everyone to know who I am. In Stage Two I won't be able to stand the attention. In Stage Three I will realize that no matter where I go, some people will know me, some won't, and it doesn't make a bit of difference."

So, at what stage is Mahoney? If his personalized license plates are any indication, he might be in Stage One. They read " Mtrlgst." Nothing like calling a little attention to yourself, huh, Tom?

"Well, I use them to identify myself as a working media member when I have to attend certain events," he says proudly, but yet somewhat apologetically.

Or, judging by his reaction when someone says, " Mahoney, you blew the forecast again," he could be in Stage Three. "I have come to terms that it really means, 'Hey, I watch you,'" he says.

In the end, it seems, teaching and TV weathercasting can be very much alike. It's all about your audience tuning in, and getting the message.
