Big turnout for Riopelle honor, Miller’s first commencement at UWGB

Council of Trustees, Foundation Board

An even dozen members of UW-Green Bay’s Council of Trustees/Foundation Board turned out to participate in the University’s mid-year commencement Saturday, Dec. 13, at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

One of the biggest delegations in years marched in the processional and took places on stage with the platform party. It was the first commencement at which UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller (center) acted as presiding officer. A highlight of the ceremony was presentation of an honory doctorate to Vice Chair Ginny Riopelle (second from right).

Members posing pre-ceremony in the Jean Weidner Theatre were, from left, Steve Maricque, Susan Finco, Cliff Abbott, Regent Emerita Judith Crain, Beth Gochnauer, Chancellor Miller, Jeanne Stangel, Chairman Lou LeCalsey, Diane Ford, new Trustee Cate Zeuske, Ginny Riopelle and Trustee Emeritus Bob Bush.
