Celebrating 25 years and counting at the Weidner Center

Kelli Strickland talks with UWGB robot on the Weidner Center main stage

The Weidner Center welcomes an exclusive line-up for the celebration of its 25th Silver Anniversary! Some of the highlights include violinist Wayne Lin, who was only 11 years old at the time of his Weidner Center debut performance in 1993 on UW-Green Bay campus, and a Christmas favorite “How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical.”

Kelli Strickland, Weidner executive and artistic director introduced the celebration and the new season with some help. As she was speaking, a foot-tall robot arrived from the wing. It was looking to audition for the coming season… It was a nod to UW-Green Bay’s science and tech folks, and increased collaboration between University and Weidner programming including a section in the subscription season that carries the title “Innovation, Ideas, Technology.”

Trivial pursuit: Girl Scouts Trivia Night has UW-Green Bay ties

2018.05.16-strickland-girl-scouts-remarks

UW-Green Bay’s own Kelli Strickland (Executive and Artistic Director, Weidner Center for Performing Arts) made guest remarks last Wednesday (May 16, 2018) at the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes’ 18th annual Winner Trivia, a yearly fixture that draws local trivia lovers and Girl Scouts supporters. As a former Girl Scout and Gold Award recipient, Strickland’s remarks aptly introduced the 60-question trivia quiz’s 31st item relating to the organization’s highest honor.

Strickland’s remarks touched on the rich and diverse experiences the organization provided her — from selling cookies to Sting at the O’Hare airport and being interviewed by Dan Rather for “selling an obnoxious amount of cookies” to trips that took her to Japan, Mexico, Kentucky and Montana. Stirckland explained the significant impact the Girl Scouts had made in her life, speaking candidly about her upbringing in a one-bedroom apartment in Chicago which she said wasn’t only a “…household with little money.” It was also, with some frequency, “a household filled with violence and addiction as a result of the mental health issues of my father.”

“You know as adults that that is a recipe for a kid to fall through the cracks,” Strickland continued. “My mother definitely gets some credit. She was/is a very strong woman. But she is happy to share that credit with the Girl Scouts.”

Chiara Boss ’13 at Girl Scouts Winner Trivia

This year’s trivia event, which started in 2000, was organized in large part by UW-Green Bay alumna Chiara Boss ’13 (Public Administration, Nonprofit Management). In Boss’s role as fund development coordinator she oversees fundraising efforts in the Green Bay region for Girl Scouts (which includes Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto and Shawano counties). Fundraising efforts comprise of community development, grant writing, organizing special events, overseeing committees and much more. Boss credits much of her success to the professors in Public Administration and Nonprofit Management, “especially Lora Warner, and my experiences in the UW-Green Bay Advancement office.”

This event has additional ties to UW-Green Bay. Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance Sheryl Van Gruensven serves on the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes Board. Morgan Hansen ’14, manager of events and annual giving volunteered, and two teams were comprised of UW-Green Bay staff.

Summerfest Show Your College Pride Day Friday June 29, 2018

UW-Green Bay is proud to announce its participation in Milwaukee Summerfest’s new “Show Your College Pride Day” on Friday, June 29. The special day promises all who arrive at the Mid Gate booth between noon and 3 p.m. wearing a shirt or hat representing UW-Green Bay, one free weekday admission, valid for the day and time of the promotion only. Once guests are inside, they may stay until grounds close.

UW-Green Bay will have a booth at the American Family Insurance Amphitheater Forecourt. All are encouraged to stop by the booth to say hello, play games, win prizes and show your support.

“We’re very excited to join with Summerfest and our other educational partners from the Milwaukee area for this new and innovative promotion,” said Eric Craver, UW-Green Bay Director of Marketing Strategy and Advertising. “Over the last few years we have strengthened our position in the greater Milwaukee area, and this event promises to bring Phoenix students, alumni and potential students to the park, wearing their UW-Green Bay gear and showing their Phoenix Pride.”

“Show Your College Pride Day” is a new free admission promotion, the likes of which have existed almost since the festival’s inception. “Every day of the festival, as part of our non-profit mission, there is a way to enter the grounds for free,” explained Lena DeLaet, Summerfest Sponsorship Sales Manager. “This ability to give back to the community happens in large part because of our partners.”  Summerfest 2018 Daily Promotions were announced Monday (May 7, 2018).

UW-Green Bay’s sponsorship is made possible by the joint efforts of the following UW-Green Bay offices and programs: Marketing and University Communication, Student Affairs and Campus Climate, Admissions, Student Life, Alumni Relations, Student Government Association, Weidner Center, Athletics, Graduate Studies, Provost, University Union and the Phoenix Bookstore.

Established in 1968, this annual 11-day music festival features 800-plus acts with more than a thousand performances and draws an average annual attendance of 900,000 people and is recognized in the Guinnes Book of World’s Records as “The World’s Largest Music Festival.”

Nearly 200 local high school juniors joined University staff, faculty and student volunteers at Lambeau Field Friday, April 27 for a fast-paced interactive day of learning about post-secondary education options. Students in attendance rotated through “booths and drills” and learned about the admissions process (Enter the Draft), living on campus and dining (Training Camp), participating in student life (Special Teams), majors and correlating career paths (Find Your Position), two-year options (Triple Option), studying abroad (Away Games) and more… and were able to connect with current students who served as “coaches,” leading the high school juniors through the day.

The informative day capped off with words from Mason Crosby, Green Bay Packers Kicker, over lunch and the opportunity to get a photo  with Phlash and Crosby and sign a “Letter of Intent” along side Crosby, promising to commit to the college process.

“The creativity and energy and pure fun you brought to the event — and put on display for all in attendance — was magnificent,” said a local school administrator about the UW-Green Bay-powered Lambeau Field event.
