Recent grad Beyer, retiree Stepien among ‘women to know’
Samantha Beyer, a 2011 UW-Green Bay graduate, and Dottie Stepien, former director of our extended (now adult) degree program, are profiled among the 20 ‘women to know’ by You Magazine. Beyer is an avid volunteer for the American Red Cross and other organizations, an activism that is motivated in part by the experience of losing her mother to illness. She’s dedicated herself to helping improve quality of life for others, and plans to pursue a medical career. Beyer graduated magna cum laude in May with a degree in Human Biology. Stepien, who now works at St. Norbert College and is co-owner of Stepien Enterprises, was recognized for her efforts to promote the status of women. She has coached numerous girls through college and into launching their careers, among other involvement on behalf of the community. You can see their profiles, and those of the other 18 honorees, in the magazine’s August edition, or online here.
