Alumna’s P-G essay: ‘Happy 50th, UWGB!’

Community columnist Lori (Starks) Linna got into the 50th anniversary spirit with a heartfelt tribute to UW-Green Bay printed in the Saturday (Oct. 31) edition of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. She writes that she was introduced to the new university as a child in the late 1960s, when her father, the late Bernie Starks, was hired as a faculty member in physical education. She witnessed the construction of the Phoenix Sports Center, kept stats for Phoenix basketball, enrolled as a student herself, worked for the Bursar’s Office, and now has a daughter enrolled at UWGB. “Happy 50th anniversary to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay,” Linna writes, “you have served my family well.”
