Neil Diboll
Neil Diboll

Neil Diboll ’78 (Environmental Sciences) is currently a prairie ecologist at the Prairie Nursery in Westfield, Wis. He attended the University of Michigan Biological Station in Pellston, MI (Boot Camp for Biologists) during the summer of 1977. He has since worked for the U.S. Park Service in Virginia, the U.S. Forest Service in Colorado and the University of Wisconsin. In 1982, Diboll began his involvement with Prairie Nursery, producing native plants and seeds and designing native landscapes. He has since devoted his efforts to championing the use of prairie plants, as well as native trees, shrubs and wetland plants, in contemporary American landscapes. In addition to helping popularize the use of native plants long before they were “cool,” Diboll developed the first scientific methodology for designing prairie seed mixes. Diboll’s work includes designs for residential, commercial and public spaces throughout the Midwest and Northeast United States. The essence of Diboll’s philosophy is that we, as stewards of the planet, must work to preserve and increase the diversity of native plants and animals with which we share our world. The protection of our natural heritage and our soil and water resources is essential to maintaining a high quality of life for today and for the children of future generations to come.

Reitz’s passion is simple; she loves creating positive change for pets and people across the nation. She founded HEA at just 21-years old. This dream wasn’t supported by everyone. Her father’s words were, “forget about it…it’s never going to happen.” Ironically, he has been extensively involved every step of the way. Today, both of her parents and her brother have made HEA’s

mission their life’s work. Reitz founded HEA when many communities were killing more than 50% of the dogs and cats that entered their animal shelters. Since 2006, HEA has successfully paired more than 4,000 companion animals with loving families. While proud of the impact, Reitz is far from satisfied. There are still hundreds of thousands of animals dying in shelters every year. She wants to see a world where the life of every companion animal matters. Reitz has been recognized by UW-Green Bay’s Inside Magazine as a Service-Minded Alumni, the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce (1 of 20 People You Should Know), and by You Magazine (1 of 20 Women to Know).

UWGB Jazz Fest is the second oldest jazz festival in Wisconsin. It was started in 1970 by professors Wayne Jaeckel and Lovell Ives, and has been host to thousands of high school students in its 50 years. Students get the chance to work with world-class musician educators in a collegial atmosphere that promotes one of America’s most important art forms. For many years, the festival was competitive in nature and saw upwards of 40 competing bands.

In the first couple of decades, UWGB Jazz Ensemble I would spend the January term in intensive practice sessions preparing for the festival, during which they would then perform with well-known soloists such as Clark Terry. With the loss of the January term, in recent years, the festival has been headlined by professional acts such as this year’s double bill of The Squirrel Nut Zippers and The Dirty Dozen Brass band. In addition, the competition is no longer competitive but features more time for each band with clinicians, including featuring one of the clinicians as a soloist on the added 4 p.m. concert. UWGB Jazz Fest is keeping the long tradition of quality jazz education alive in Northeast Wisconsin.

This year, there are more than a dozen bands from 10 different schools participating: Ashwaubenon High School, Green Bay East High School, Pulaski Middle School, Pulaski High School, Two Rivers High School, Evansville High School, Preble High School, West DePere High School, Bay Port High School and Jefferson High School. Following a morning and afternoon of workshops and masterclasses, six of the bands will participate in a concert to showcase their talents. The concert will be held at 4 p.m. in the Cofrin Family Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. This concert is free and the public is welcomed and encouraged to attend. As part of the 50th celebration of Jazz Fest, at the beginning of the 4 p.m. concert and the 7:30 headliner concert, UW-Green Bay Associate Professor and Jazz Fest organizer Adam Gaines will give a brief presentation on the history of Jazz Fest, highlighting some of the accomplishments from over the years.

Also as part of the 50th celebration of Jazz Fest, a Jazz Alumni Dinner Party is being held on Thursday, January 23, 2020 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Blue Opus, 1390 Bellevue St., Green Bay. The evening will feature live music and a jam session and be a chance for Jazz alumni to catch up and share their love of the art with other enthusiasts. The event is open to the public and you do not have to be an alumnus to attend. There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door. The money raised at this event will help fund the UWGB Jazz Ensemble’s tour of Slovakia in May.

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and The Squirrel Nut Zippers have made a name for themselves in the Jazz world by breaking the mold of traditional Jazz and combining it with aspects of Swing, Delta Blues, Bebop Jazz, Funk and R&B/Soul. Each band will play one set along with a collaboration between the two bands. The headliner concert will be held in the Cofrin Family Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets start at $20.50 and are available online at www.weidnercenter.com/events/.

Press Release from UW-Green Bay’s first Commencement, June 1, 1970

UW-Green Bay
Office of News and Publications
1567 Deckner Avenue
5 May 1970

FOR RELEASE ON OR AFTER MAY 17
From Pat Viets (414) 435-3211, Ext. 214

That the pioneer spirit is alive and well will be amply apparent when members of the Year One graduating class of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay stand up to receive their diplomas on June 1.

Many with graying hair will rise when the graduates’ names are read at the commencement ceremony, the first since UWGB became a degree-granting university last fall: nearly one-third of the senior class of 78 members is well over 30.

Half the group is married; the solemnity of the occasion will be brightened by the unusually large number of children- from tots to teenagers- who will be watching a parent receive a bachelor’s degree.

The 21-year-olds wearing mortar boards can hardly be called typical grads, either, in the sense of having spent four somewhat sheltered years at a tradition-bound college. Most of them began their education elsewhere, attended other colleges, or matriculated under the UW Center system. Now they will be alumni of perhaps the only school in the country planned from the start as an institution consciously focusing its philosophy and program on the problems of the environment.

For some, this ecological focus was the reason for continuing their studies at UWGB. For others, the University provided an opportunity near home to finish college work begun, in some cases years earlier, or to obtain a degree by the longer route of going to school evening and holding down a regular daytime job.

No generation gap exists on this campus, students of both age groups agree. The biggest difference between this year’s young graduate and his counterpart of a generation ago is that he is more caring, believes, Mrs. Joyce De Bauche, 44, mother of seven, who is completing a program for teacher certification.

“They worry more about other people. And most of them are terrific students – no false front, completely sincere. If you look no deeper than their clothing and beards, you don’t get the right impression.”

Mrs. De Bauche admits the exposure has caused her to see her own children in a different light. On two different occasions she and her oldest son were enrolled in the same class. The prospective teacher started back to school at age 40, “My family was pretty much on its own and ‘kaffee-klatsching’ wasn’t for me. I wanted more of a challenge.”

Idealism isn’t limited to the youngsters. Bernard J. Petras, 30, an employee of the Wisconsin State Reformatory, who has been working on his degree since 1964 with majors in social studies and psychology puts it this way: “My way of life is that a person is only as valuable as the effort he makes, or what he aspires to be,” he said. “My value lies not only in my being more productive personally; I want also to set an example for my children.”

He added that his wife felt his education has made a difference in terms of what he ow believes he is capable of doing. “going to school has cost me something, personally, in a lot of ways,” he notes, mentioning particularly loss of time spent with this wife and their four sons. “But I hope to realize returns.”

A pioneer in a literal sense is Mrs. Alice Yoder, 32, who managed to “open” three new colleges in her four years of undergraduate study. Sauk Valley College was just opening its doors in Dixon, Ill., when the newly-transferred Yoders arrived in town. Mrs. Yoder, whose youngest child was entering kindergarten that fall, enrolled on the spot.

The following year the Yoders were transferred again – to Weaton, Ill. – and again a brand-new junior college welcomed Mrs. Yoder. This was College of DuPage which opened with 5,000 students and no buildings. Mrs. Yoder recalls driving miles between classrooms in rented space in buildings scattered all over the county. Having progressed beyond junior colleges, Mrs. Yoder enrolled at North Central College at nearby Naperville, Ill. She found it to be her only contact with a traditional “ivy” type of institution, where she completed her junior year.

Then, last summer, the Yoders were transferred to Green Bay. Just in time, UWGB – newly organized as a four-year school – was ready and able to confer the degree. Mrs. Yoder, who has five children and maintains a straight A average, will teach language arts next fall at Franklin Junior High School, Green Bay.

Jobs are not as plentiful for this year’s June graduate, especially the one who wants to stay in the Green Bay area. Accounting is one of the fields for which graduates like Ronald Lodes are still actively sought.

Lodes, 30, “bummed around” at various jobs before enlisting in the U.S. Air Force, then decided he wanted something better when he was discharged.

“I realized that anyone who is going to make it has to have a degree.” He enrolled four years ago at the UW Green Bay Center, and begins a job in the accounting field in Racine after picking up his diploma.

Do the graduates see themselves as pioneers?

A “Very much so!” comes from Susan Allen, 21, secretary of the Student Government Association. “It really has been a fantastic experience helping to put a university together. We feel close to the faculty…there’s been such good interaction at all times, and they’ve tried to help us a lot. It’s a thrill to be part of the first graduating class, but I hate to leave. Our class has been through so much together.”

Michael McDaniel, 22, thinks UWGB is “getting off to a good start. It will be quite a university after it gets a foothold. I like the standards for teachers, and the solid curriculum. It’s hard to judge right now whether the more diversified education offered at UWGB is better, but it seems to me to be more applicable to the outside world than the narrower system.”

Regardless of age, the outlook of the graduating seniors seems the same: a sense of achievement, a hope of contributing something worthwhile, and – what pioneers are noted for – a certain faith in the future.

 

 

 

100th Commencement, First commencement photo

UW-Green Bay celebrates 100th Graduating Class

Classes of June 1970 and December 2019 strike similarities including commitment to service and community

Green Bay, Wis.—It started humbly in UW Center’s Deckner Gymnasium in June of 1970. Seventy-eight members of the first graduating class received their diplomas from the fledgling University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Twice a year since, the University community has gathered to honor and congratulate graduates in a formal ceremony.

On Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019, 432 students—members of the University’s 100th graduating class—will participate in Commencement, boosting UW-Green Bay’s alumni total to nearly 39,500. The official ceremony begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

Serving as the formal commencement speaker will be UW-Green Bay faculty member Patricia Terry. The tenured professor and accomplished Ironman and ultra-marathon participant is approaching her 25th year at UW-Green Bay. “If you’re going to run, run a marathon. Go to college? Get a Ph.D. Work at a university? Achieve the rank of full professor,” she says. Terry, who helped launch the engineering technology degree and sits as the inaugural chair of the Resch School of Engineering, will bring her confidence, experience and wisdom to the stage.

Here’s a look back at the first ceremony:

“The University’s first commencement, on June 1, 1970, was planned as an outdoor ceremony,” according to a 1970 press release from UW-Green Bay. “According to plan, graduates would be escorted by faculty members, one at a time, up the steps of the concrete plaza, under blue skies, with flags waving in the breeze above them. Rain and wind chased the celebration into the Deckner gym. Nancy Ably of Green Bay was the first to cross the platform and receive a diploma from Chancellor Edward W. Weidner. The class was predictably mature: Helen Glickman, at 47, was the oldest of the 78 seniors, all of whom had completed most of their undergraduate education elsewhere. One-third of the group were aged 30 or older.” As commencement speaker, New York Times columnist Max Lerner spoke on the theme “Angles of Vision.” Gov. Warren Knowles saluted the University as an institution representing a “new wave of educational thought at a school destined to become a truly great university, as it offered an education tuned in to social concerns.”

See more from the press release for UW-Green Bay’s very first Commencement.

UW-Green Bay’s 100th graduating class holds similarities, including a mature class (27 is the average age of undergraduates and 36 the average age of graduate students). A third of the class of 1970 had reach 30 years of age. Environmental Sciences is still popular among graduate programs. While UW-Green Bay seniors in 1970 found themselves in the middle of anti-Vietnam War sentiments and peaceful demonstrations, UW-Green Bay’s current senior class of veterans (31 in active duty and 74 spouses or children of military veterans) are well-supported by the University community, from admission to graduation. Some of those success stories include:

Bachelor of Nursing (BSN) graduate Ginger Turck, Green Bay, is among those crossing the stage. Her long journey to a degree has included several different careers, negotiating an active duty injury and juggling family commitments. She graduates with the hope of serving in a veteran’s hospital. (More on her story can be found at www.uwgb.edu).

Fellow veteran Andrea Ackerman, De Pere, returned stateside just in time (Dec. 6, 2019) to graduate, after a one-year deployment. She was able to complete, from Afghanistan, her degree requirements for a Master’s Degree in Applied Leadership for Teaching and Learning. Her line of inquiry for the master’s program has focused on the use of community gardens in assisting veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. She also put her leadership skills to use by creating an on-base community garden, while overcoming the obstacles of little soil, few seeds and blistering hot conditions. She will begin implementing community gardens in Northeast Wisconsin this summer.

The first class and the 100th also share a commitment to service and are active and engaged citizens:

Nominated by faculty members and selected as student speaker is Hannah Malmberg (Green Bay West, Political Science and Communication). “She is always serving others, in the most profound ways,” said a faculty member. Described as a student who “embraced all her opportunities,” Malmberg’s list of accomplishments earned her a Chancellor’s Medallion and also included incredible portfolio-building opportunities. Among them: she was an active member of Habitat for Humanity, she served as a peer mentor for low-income and/or first-generation students, she was one of 13 students selected to work in the Political Science Research Lab, she served as a resident assistant, and she worked at two highly competitive internships—at Green Bay City Hall and NEW Water.

Captain of the Green Bay Phoenix men’s golf team, Bennett Hutson (Onalaska, Wis., Mechanical Engineering Technology) volunteered to help young athletes with disabilities and helped tutor student athletes. He also served as co-president of the Engineering Club and was volunteer chair of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Hutson also organized a project that provided delivery of leftover food from dining services to a homeless shelter.

Becky Berry, (Marinette, Wis., Environmental Science) a Marinette Campus transfer, hopes to earn a Ph.D. and one-day enter into politics. Her research on cyanobacteria has continued for six semesters and has been presented nationally, and at the 2017 International BMAA conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. (BMAA is a ubiquitous cyanobacterial toxin linked to neurodegenerative diseases.) Before transferring to the Green Bay campus, she served on the Lower Menominee River Citizen’s Advisory Committee.

Bruna Muraca (Political Science and History), an international student from Brazil, hopes to build on her UW-Green Bay experiences to pursue a career in international relations at the United Nations with an emphasis in environmental affairs. She is a passionate advocate for human rights in areas including education, poverty eradication, gender equality, clean water and sanitation and climate justice. She recently applied for an internship with the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) at The Hague in the Netherlands.
