Chancellor Thomas K. Harden honored four individuals by presenting them with UW-Green Bay’s highest community honor, the Chancellor’s Award, at May 2014 commencement before an audience of nearly 5,000 at the Kress Events Center.  Those honored were Mike Kline, Janet and Charlie Lieb, and Larry L. Weyers. In reading the citation for Weyers, Harden read:

“Larry L. Weyers has devoted his life to public service – in more ways than one.  Whether as private citizen, generous community advocate or influential corporate executive, he has distinguished himself as a remarkable supporter of UW-Green Bay and its students.  He served for many years as CEO and president of Wisconsin Public Service Corporation and Integrys Energy. During his tenure, UW-Green Bay had no stronger corporate partner.  WPS sponsored faculty and student research, various ongoing programs, and the solar “extras” that made Mary Ann Cofrin Hall a national showcase for energy-efficient technology.  More recently, with his wife, Lois, he has contributed generously to both the Phuture Phoenix Program and the revitalization of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts… Ladies and Gentlemen, please join me in congratulating, as recipients of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor’s Award, Larry Weyers.”
