Rookie of the year: Student earns Red Cross award after getting start on campus

A UW-Green Bay student who got involved with the American Red Cross of Northeast Wisconsin by joining our campus club has been named the organization’s “rookie of the year,” earning kudos for her enthusiastic volunteerism. Jennifer Pederson recently was honored “for her exceptional work and dedication” after she “hit the ground running after being recruited by some of her friends to get involved with the UW-Green Bay Red Cross club,” according to a blog post announcing the award. The Red Cross, of course, also employs one of our terrific alums — Jody Weyers ’96, recipient of the 2011 Outstanding Recent Alumni Award. Weyers, Volunteer and Communications director for the chapter, is pictured with Pederson in the post: click here.
