“In the 25 years since he graduated from this institution, whether as employee or volunteer, Mike Kline has been a tireless ambassador and enthusiastic advocate. As coach of the Phoenix cross-country teams, he has influenced a generation of college athletes to dedicate themselves to their sport and to their teammates.  As academic coordinator for our Division I sports program, he has impressed faculty and staff with his absolute devotion to ensuring that every student realizes the best of a UW-Green Bay education.  Finally, as a friend and colleague, he has impressed many of us with the power of hard work, optimism and, always, a smile… Ladies and Gentlemen, please join me in congratulating, as recipient of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor’s Award, Mike Kline.”
