Watch: Cole, others appear live on “Good Day Wisconsin” ahead of MLK event

Several folks with UW-Green Bay ties made it an early morning Thursday, appearing on WLUK, Fox 11’s Good Day Wisconsin to promote Saturday’s (Jan. 18) community celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. As we told you here previously, UW-Green Bay is a major sponsor of the event, which will be held from 10:30 a.m.-noon in the Student Center at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. It is free and open to the public. Our own Juliet Cole, of the Institute for Learning Partnership, appeared live in the 5 a.m. hour to talk about the celebration and the Nia African and African-American drumming and dancing group that will perform (Cole is the founder of and a dancer with the group). Assistant Prof. Gaurav Bansal’s two children appeared in the 6 and 7 a.m. hours, performing classical Indian dance and talking about an award-winning poem from last year’s celebration, respectively. And University Communications staffer Yvonne Splan’s daughter, Alyssa, also appeared during the 7 a.m. hour, talking about her winning essay from last year’s event.
