Slideshow: UW-Green Bay, Business program say ‘thank-you’ to Cofrins
It was a reunion of business and accounting faculty, past and present, along with former Fort Howard and current Georgia/Pacific executives, when UW-Green Bay leadership hosted a private reception earlier this week. The guest of honor was Paige Cofrin of Boulder, Colo. Speakers praised the generosity of his father, the late Dr. David A. Cofrin, whose multi-million-dollar donation in 2009 was the largest academic gift in University history. The focus of the event, however, was celebrating the memory of Fort Howard Paper Co. founder Austin E. Cofrin, David’s father and Paige’s grandfather, for whom our School of Business is now officially named. Photo gallery.
