Albers named 2017 Outstanding Volunteer

Pat Albers, lecturer in Accounting, was honored as 2017 Outstanding Volunteer for donating her professional expertise to the Green Bay Garden Blitz and her “tireless effort and tremendous time devoted to building a stronger community.” The Green Bay Garden Blitz empowers residents to grow food and be part of a sustainable, urban agricultural system by installing raised bed gardens at a low cost and by providing education and mentorship for gardeners. It is a joint project of UW Brown County Cooperative Extension and New Leaf Foods, Inc., a local non-profit supporting healthy food access and education.
