Campus mourns passing of Kurt Spielmann
Campus members learned late last week about the death of Kurt Spielmann, son of staff UWGB staff emeritus Dan Spielmann (legal counsel and policy advisor to all six UWGB chancellors). Kurt “grew up” at UWGB, in the years that his father served as the University’s athletics director. Kurt and his brother Jeff spent years volunteering as ball boys for Phoenix men’s basketball, and later, Kurt was a “noonball” regular at the Phoenix Sports Center with his dad. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that friends consider a donation to the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) or to the UW-Green Bay Foundation for a music scholarship in honor of Kurt. Services are Wednesday. Read more.
