As it has for years, UW-Green Bay is set to play a fundamental role in Saturday’s (Jan. 19, 2019) Brown County Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. The University is a major sponsor for this awesome annual event, which runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon at NWTC’s Student Center. Chancellor Gary L. Miller will offer remarks during the celebration and present prizes for grades K-3 in the annual MLK poster and essay contest. Also on tap are entertainment and poignant reflections — not to mention a delicious luncheon at program’s end. The event is free and open to the public. More details here. Several UW-Green Bay faculty and staff members serve on the MLK event planning committee, including Jolanda Sallmann and Francis Akakpo (Social Work), Gaurav Bansal and Mussie Teclezion (Business Administration) and Mai Lo Lee (Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs).
