ACH for TER’s coming ASAP

The Controller’s Office has completed testing of the new ACH process for travel expense reimbursements (TER’s).

Highlights of the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon

Jolene Sell, a member of the Phoenix women’s cross-country team, capped a busy weekend by running in the 12th annual Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. Sell received her degree in Human Biology on Saturday and ran a Boston Marathon qualifying time on Sunday. (Congratulations on two great accomplishments!)

• A team composed of current men’s cross-country runners took first place in the Relay Division. Team members were Erik Blomsness, Stephen Wagner, Evan Wachter, Josh Clark, and Paul Malcore. The Relay division had a Phoenix trifecta as teams made up of former cross-country runners also took second and third.

• Men’s Baskeball Head Coach Brian Wardle ran as a tall member of a marathon relay team.

Franz goes the distance in Boston

Kelly Franz of the Controllers Office, UW-Green Bay’s standard bearer in the epic 26-mile footrace known as the Boston Marathon, acquitted himself well Monday. It was the fastest marathon ever run, at least by the leaders, and Franz did his part by posting an official time of 3:32:02. His unofficial coach, Mike Kline of the Phoenix cross-country program, checked on the race periodically via the internet from his Kress Center office, and liked what he saw as Franz passed the various electronic checkpoints: “From looking at his time, splits, and progression; he left it all out on the course, and that’s the best you can do.” Congratulations, Kelly, on your first Boston Marathon.
