Lynn Renard, a custodian at the Green Bay Campus for more than 10 years, passed away March 16 in her home. Most recently, and until her last day of work on September 20, 2019, she worked in Wood Hall, but also spent significant time at the Kress Events Center during her career and was widely known and a fond member of the operations team.
According to the obituary, Lynn was the first woman in Wisconsin to obtain her charter captain license, and worked until the day she no longer was able to at UWGB. “UWGB family, mom loved you and talked about you all the time.”
“In respect to her wishes, a private wake is planned for the immediate family, followed by a celebration of life (chicken dinner with a cold Natty Light) for the extended family to share memories and stories of this amazing woman.”

From the CATL office: “For the week of March 23-27, 202, CATL will continue its practice of twice daily interactive webinars on teaching and learning from a distance. Instead of having webinars on specific topics, though, we are taking inspiration from Harry Potter, and launching our own Room of Requirement. Login weekdays at 10 a.m. and/or 1 p.m. and ask us anything in these open webinars for you and your colleagues! Not sure the best way to hold virtual office hours? Unclear about how to have your students record an oral presentation and submit it? Join us, and just like in the Potter books, our virtual room provides what you seek (or at least we’ll try!) For those of you who missed our week of webinars on specific topics, such as Webconferencing with Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, we recorded those sessions, and they can be accessed here: https://www.uwgb.edu/remote/faculty-resources/ And, as always, email us at CATL@uwgb.edu if you would like to schedule an individual consultation. We are available and eager to help and support you as we make this transition as a campus community.”
This message from CATL: “For everyone’s health and safety, beginning March 24th, all Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) staff will be working remotely. We will still provide our full range of services, and we are available to help all instructors during this time—that is our mission! We will continue regular interactive webinars, and we can hold individual consultations where you can still share your screen with us, and we can virtually talk face-to-face. Continue to email CATL@uwgb.edu with any questions and to set up individual consultations. Remember that we are still “here” for you!”
