Others with UW-Green Bay connections honored

Emily Rogers, coordinator of Access Services for the Cofrin Library, was a member of the 2013 Leadership Green Bay class that received the Bellin Health Systems Small Group Award for their work on bringing awareness to domestic violence. They started the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,” event in the Green Bay community — an international men’s march that raises awareness for rape, sexual assault and gender violence. Also nominated with UWGB connections in the Green Bay Packers Large Group category were UW-Green Bay cheerleaders, UW-Green Bay Habitat for Humanity, UW-Green Bay cross country teams and Weidner Center ushers. Kevin Van Ess ’84 played a clarinet jazz piece in honor of Lifetime Achievement designee Elton Petersen. Steve Maricque ’78, president of the Bellin Health Foundation, presented the Bellin Foundation award. (Shannon Bodilly, daughter of UWGB’s Director of Marketing, Sue Bodilly, was among the Youth Volunteer Award nominees for her work with the CP Center of Green Bay.)
