Leanne Shaha recognized as UW-Green Bay's 20,000th graduate

GREEN BAY - Recognition of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's 20,000th graduate highlighted UW-Green Bay commencement ceremonies Saturday (Dec. 21) at the University's Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

UW-Green Bay officials took time to acknowledge Leanne Shaha, the University's 20,000th graduate. Shaha, a Spanish and Business Administration major from Luxemburg, graduated Saturday with honors.

Nancy Deprey of Green Bay, UW-Green Bay's first graduate in June 1970, joined Shaha on the Weidner Center stage during the ceremony.

"Twenty thousand graduates serving our state, our nation and our world is a great milestone for our University and for the region we serve," UW-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard said.

UW-Green Bay, founded on the nucleus of a two-year UW Center, began offering classes as a four-year institution in fall 1968. The first commencement in 1970 marked the end of the first academic year on the University's campus on Nicolet Drive.

Deprey presented Shaha with a gift packet from the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association. The packet contained various mementos, including UW-Green Bay apparel and tickets to Phoenix basketball games and Weidner Center events.

Chancellor Shepard then gave Shaha a bowl handcrafted from a piece of the old UW-Green Bay "Shoe Tree."

The Shoe Tree, one of UW-Green Bay's most enduring traditions, blew over in a windstorm in July. Graduating seniors would toss shoes - often with parting messages written on them - onto the branches of the 60-foot oak near the student residence halls. To continue the tradition, a new Shoe Tree was selected after the original went down.

The Chancellor, a woodworker in his spare time, made the bowl from a piece of the old tree he saved and stored in his garage.

"Whether you are No. 20,000 or 19,999 or 20,001, we hand to each of you a piece of our proud tradition, the uniquely UWGB approach to higher education that is now an inseparable part of you, knowing that you will apply that gift to special purposes, " Shepard said.

Three hundred fifty students were eligible to receive diplomas in the UW-Green Bay commencement ceremonies Saturday.

Other commencement highlights:

• Student commencement speaker Cherry Pfau told the graduates that their education has given them the discipline and courage to make learning a lifelong process. She urged them to use their education to improve the lives of others.

Pfau traveled 1,400 miles from Land O' Lakes, Fla., to visit the campus for the first time this weekend. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree through UW-Green Bay's national online nursing program. Prior to Saturday, Pfau's view of the campus had been through a 14-inch computer screen, she said.

• In his entertaining and often lighthearted commencement address, UW Regent Roger Axtell said the graduates are part of the "first truly global generation."

Axtell, well-known for his international travel expertise, said Americans tend to think the world revolves around the United States. He said Americans must learn to adapt to, be aware of and be respectful of other cultures.

With the assistance of Prof. William Laatsch and the audience, Axtell demonstrated ways in which people greet each other in various countries. He explained how the greetings often are interpreted much differently than Americans would interpret them.

"But once you break through that thin layer at the top, you'll find that people around the world are more alike than they are unlike," he said.

Axtell worked for 30 years for The Parker Pen Co., retiring as vice president, worldwide marketing. He also is well-known as the author of nine books.

• Outstanding Student Awards were presented to Stacy Blavat of Green Bay and Kimberly Kargus of Oshkosh. Blavat, a Communication Processes major, has studied in England and Germany, is an advocate for international education, and founded the Study Abroad Alumni Club. Kargus, a Math major with minors in Music and Secondary Education, was co-founder of the UW-Green Bay Math Club among other activities.

• Sheila Garrigan of Green Bay became the first UW-Green Bay graduate through a credit-transfer agreement with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Garrigan studied Corrections Science at NWTC and transferred to UW-Green Bay. The agreement between the two institutions enabled her to apply credits earned at the technical college toward a bachelor's degree at the University.

News from UW Learning Innovations:
Virtual UW nursing student to present UW-Green Bay commencement address

GREEN BAY - This week when Cherry Pfau sets foot on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus for the first time, it will be a momentous occasion. Not only will the registered nurse from Land O' Lakes, Fla. receive her bachelor's degree in nursing, but she also will be the featured student speaker at the University's graduation ceremony.

On Saturday (Dec. 21), Pfau will receive her degree with her fellow classmates at UW-Green Bay-with one key difference. She completed her degree over the Internet from her home in Florida.

Pfau, who has been a registered nurse for 30 years, is graduating from the national BSN-LINC program, an interactive, online degree completion program offered through a collaboration among the five UW Schools of Nursing and UW Learning Innovations (UWLI). The program is led by UW-Green Bay.

The BSN-LINC program is delivered almost entirely online and is offered to registered nurses with an associate degree or diploma. Because it is offered online, BSN-LINC allows students to complete their course work at times and locations that are convenient to them.

This was very important to Pfau, who had intended to go back to school for her bachelor's degree for many years but could never manage to fit traditional classes into her work and family schedule. When she first heard about the BSN-LINC program at a national nursing conference, she thought it would be the perfect program for her.

"I researched several other online programs, but most were not (National League for Nursing) accredited or backed by a major university system," Pfau said. "The BSN-LINC program was both- and it was flexible enough to allow me to continue my full-time employment. It has been a challenging, but very rewarding experience. My new knowledge has already been a benefit to me in my current work as an education manager for a large elder-care company. I tell all the other nurses I meet about how great this program is for working nurses. I will be very proud to become an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay nursing program."

Pfau enrolled in the BSN-LINC program in the fall of 2000, when the program first went live. Currently, the program has about 125 students enrolled from 30 states and two foreign countries. The first two graduates completed the program in May of 2002. Pfau is one of five BSN-LINC graduates this semester. She will be joined at the Green Bay ceremony by Patricia Jones of Ohio.

According to Jane Muhl, Ph.D, R.N., Interim Dean of Professional Studies and Outreach at UW-Green Bay, the program's flexibility and accessibility make it popular with adult students like Pfau. While the individual courses have deadlines and assignments just like traditional on-campus courses, BSN-LINC allows learners to go to class at any time of day through the Internet. Muhl also praises the program's advisor, Kathy Altergott, with making a big difference in the students' lives and says the collaborative spirit of the program makes it special.

"Even though this technically is UW-Green Bay's program, it's a collaborative effort," Muhl said. "We enjoy the experience of the faculty of UW-Madison, Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Eau Claire and the UW Colleges. BSN-LINC is truly a Wisconsin product. Without the participation of our sister institutions, UW-Extension and UW-Learning Innovations- without all of us together- we couldn't do it."

So, what is Pfau looking forward to most as she prepares to leave her Florida home to visit Wisconsin in December? "I am really, really looking forward to actually seeing the campus and meeting some of my professors in person," Pfau said. "Everyone here in Florida thinks I am crazy for going to Green Bay in December, but I am really looking forward to the trip. My mother is the only one brave enough to come with me."

The UW-Green Bay commencement will be held at noon Saturday at the University's Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

UW-Green Bay students win 'Geographic Information' grants

GREEN BAY-Two students at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay have been selected to receive grants of $1,000 each from the International Geographic Information Foundation (IGIF), an organization that seeks "to advance the understanding and use of spatial data for the betterment of humankind and the effective operation of public and private organizations."

The recipients are Ashley Booth, Glenwood City, who graduated on Saturday, Dec. 21 with a degree in Urban and Regional Studies, and Ben LaCount, Shawano, a junior who is completing majors in Environmental Policy and Planning and Earth Science.

Prof. Bill Niedzwiedz, Public and Environmental Affairs, says the president of IGIF sought him out and invited him to choose two UW-Green Bay students for the awards. Recipients can use the money for educational costs, or to attend the annual Geospatial Information and Technology Association conference in March 2003 in San Antonio.

Booth won a UW-Green Bay Cofrin Arboretum Student Research Grant for 2002, and used the grant to carry out a feasibility study on the possibility of creating an environmental corridor linking nearby Hutchison Bog to the Cofrin Arboretum on campus. LaCount's applied experience has included working with Prof. Niedzwiedz on a geographic information systems project for the annual Bellin Run sponsored by Bellin Hospital in Green Bay.

UW-Green Bay students selected for theater competition

GREEN BAY-A student stage manager and six student actors at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay have been nominated to compete at the regional American College Theater Festival (ACTF) Jan. 8-11, 2003, in Evansville, Ind.

Beth Noonkester, Cedarburg, is among six student stage managers from throughout the region selected to serve as stage manager for one of the entries in a festival of 10-minute plays written by students. One of the six competitors will be invited to the national ACTF festival in Washington, D.C. in the spring. Noonkester was chosen by an independent respondent for her stage managing work in the UW-Green Bay production of "Our Town" in October.

Student actors nominated for the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship competition, and the UW-Green Bay productions that resulted in their selection are:

Andrea Dahlke, Wausau, ("Smash," "The Liar," "Dames at Sea"); Todd Dively, Taylorville, Ill., ("Smash"); Sunam Ellis, Appleton, ("The Liar," "Our Town"); Steven Marzolf, Green Bay, ("Dames at Sea"); Terra Schultz, Withee, ("Our Town"); and Dan Van Dellen, Wausau, ("The Liar").

Some participants in the regional level acting competition are selected to advance in the scholarship competition and to perform at the Kennedy Center in Washington. The Irene Ryan competition is named for the actress who portrayed Granny on the television series, "Beverly Hillbillies," and who left a legacy providing scholarships for young actors.

Spielmann named Government and Community Relations Director at UW-Green Bay

GREEN BAY -_ Daniel Spielmann, athletics director at Northern Michigan University since August 2000, is returning to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay as its Director of Government and Community Relations.

Spielmann spent 24 years at UW-Green Bay in a variety of administrative positions, including acting associate chancellor, athletics director, chief of staff, University counsel and legislative liaison.

In his new position, Spielmann will work with the community at large and government officials to enhance UW-Green Bay's ability to serve the community and state.

Spielmann officially begins his duties Jan. 13. The position's duties previously were held primarily by Jeanne Stangel, who left UW-Green Bay for a job in the private sector.

Charles Wilson, UW-Green Bay Assistant Chancellor for University Advancement, said he is pleased to have someone of Spielmann's experience and dedication serve the University in this important position.

"Chancellor Bruce Shepard is dedicated to insuring that UW-Green Bay effectively serves Northeastern Wisconsin," Wilson said. "Dan's efforts will help the University build on our progress in providing outstanding service to the region."

Spielmann said he is enthusiastic about his new opportunity at UW-Green Bay.

"I'm very excited and happy to be returning to UW-Green Bay," he said. "I'm looking forward to the challenge and the opportunity to help advance the University."

At Northern Michigan, Spielmann has led an athletic department consisting of 13 sports. He helped balance the department's budget, improve graduation rates of student-athletes and increase private donations to athletics programs.

During his earlier tenure at UW-Green Bay, Spielmann had a wide range of responsibilities. He worked with the state Legislature and other government agencies and provided legal representation to the campus community. As UW-Green Bay athletics director from 1985 to 1994, he provided leadership for the athletic program as it grew from seven to 15 sports.

Spielmann has a law degree and a bachelor's degree in political science from UW-Madison.

He and his wife, Elizabeth, have two sons.

UW-Green Bay faculty win 'Creative Teaching' awards

GREEN BAY -- Three members of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay faculty have been awarded "Creative Approaches to Teaching" awards for fall semester 2002.

The awards went to Illene Noppe, professor of Human Development; Alison Gates, assistant professor of Communication and the Arts; and Joy Benson, assistant professor of Business Administration. The awards, given by the Faculty Development Council, recognize specific teaching strategies. Recipients win a certificate and a $100 honorarium.

Noppe was cited for designating one weekly class day as a "symposium day" in which students take the lead in answering critical questions. Gates, who teaches art, uses a multi-media strategy to help students get project ideas: Students read a novel, watch a film adaptation of the same novel, and then make a work of art based on anything from the novel. Benson uses representative pictures and rhymes to help students recall concepts.

UW-Green Bay will honor 20,000th graduate in Dec. 21 commencement ceremony

GREEN BAY-Three hundred fifty students at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay are eligible to receive diplomas in commencement ceremonies at noon Saturday, Dec. 21 in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on the campus at 2420 Nicolet Dr.

Chancellor Bruce Shepard will preside over the event.

The University will acknowledge its 20,000th graduate during the ceremony. The University's first graduates, 78 of them, received diplomas on June 1, 1970. UW-Green Bay, founded on the nucleus of a two-year UW Center, offered classes as a four-year institution beginning in fall 1968, and the first commencement marked the end of the new University's first academic year of residence on its brand-new campus on Nicolet Dr.

There will be a pause in the Dec. 21 ceremony to mark the occasion when the 20,000th graduate takes the stage.

Roger Axtell, a member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents, will be the commencement speaker. Axtell worked 30 years for The Parker Pen Co., retiring as vice president, worldwide marketing. Today, he is known as the author of nine books-two of which have been best sellers-and for his international travel expertise.

Axtell writes and speaks on business, travel, customs, etiquette, gestures, humor, English language use, and behavior around the world. Because of his "Dos and Taboos" series of books, "World Trade" magazine named Axtell one of the 25 most influential people in international trade. "The New Yorker" magazine has dubbed him "an international Emily Post."

The student speaker will be a graduate whose first visit to the UW-Green Bay campus will come two days before the commencement ceremony. Cherry Pfau, Land O' Lakes, Fla., will receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree which she earned through UW-Green Bay's national on-line nursing program (BSN-LINC).

A registered nurse since 1972, family priorities prevented Pfau from completing the B.S.N. degree she desired until now. She began UW-Green Bay studies in fall 2000, as one of the first to enter the national program. Pfau completed all of her nursing, support, and general education courses on-line, and earned a nearly perfect grade point average. She is graduating with highest honors.

The UW-Green Bay Alumni Association chose two students to receive Outstanding Student Awards. Stacy Blavat, Green Bay, and Kimberly Kargus, Oshkosh, are both graduating with cum laude honors. Alumni Association President Suzanne Pedersen will present the awards.

Blavat, who has studied in England and Germany, is an advocate for international education, and founded and served as co-president of the Study Abroad Alumni Club. She was an intern in the Office of International Education where she coordinated and initiated several projects. Blavat earned a major in Communication Processes.

Kargus was co-founder of the new UW-Green Bay Math Club, and originated a Birthday Club, which enables parents to have "treats" delivered to student sons and daughters, and also serves as a fund-raiser for a needy family. A Math major with minors in Music and Secondary Education, Kargus was active in Student Wisconsin Education Association, served as a Peer Educator, and sang in the Concert Choir.

Also during the ceremony, retiring professor Joseph A. Mannino will be awarded the title Professor Emeritus of Human Biology. Mannino, who also taught in the anthropology discipline, joined the faculty in 1980.

The study, "States of the Fox/Wolf Basin: Assessing Environmental Indicators," was prepared for the Fox/Wolf Watershed Alliance, Inc., by 15 graduate students enrolled in the capstone seminar of the Environmental Science and Policy graduate program at UW-Green Bay.

The students sought answers to two questions: What do we know about the environmental states of the Fox/Wolf River Basin? What do we need to learn to better assess the environment of the basin?

The seminar is co-taught by Troy Abel, assistant professor of Public and Environmental Affairs, and Ron Stieglitz, professor of Natural and Applied Sciences.

Abel says the students analyzed quantities of research from the Department of Natural Resources and other agencies and organizations to arrive at an assessment of what indicators should determine the environmental status of the watershed basin. "This work will evolve over time," notes Abel. "This is essentially a first cut.'

The seminar course, for students who are nearing completion of their studies, requires students with different training and interests to focus on environmental issues of local communities. Previous seminar projects have included studying growth and land use in the Village of Howard, helping the Brussels Town Planning Committee develop a comprehensive plan, and investigating water supply issues in Brown County.

The Dec. 10 public presentation is sponsored by the Environmental Science and Policy graduate program at UW-Green Bay and the Fox/Wolf Watershed Alliance, Inc. A reception will follow the presentation. The number for information is (920) 465-2123
