Mike and Debi Jackson established this scholarship in 2012 to benefit local students studying Business Administration or Accounting. Mike was born in Sturgeon Bay and raised in Oconto. After becoming the first in his family to graduate from college, Mike spent his career in the grocery business and retired as President and COO of SuperValu Stores, Inc. He is a prime example of a homegrown talent who used college as a stepping stone from a work-a-day job to a Fortune 500 career. While bagging groceries as a college student, Mike worked beside a girl named Debi Hayes. They celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in 2011. Mike also received the UW-Green Bay Alumni Association's Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007 and joined the Chancellor's Council of Trustees in 2008.
