UW-Green Bay’s Niemi is tourney host, national-caliber ‘hockey mom’
UW-Green Bay Disabilities Services Coordinator Lynn Niemi, a leading figure in local youth hockey and the mother of 13-year-old twin girls who excel at the sport, has a very busy week ahead. Niemi is co-director of a national tournament that is expected to bring 48 teams to town and $1.5 million to the area’s economy. The USA Hockey Nationals will be played Wednesday through Sunday (April 7-11) at the Cornerstone Community Ice Center in De Pere. For a very interesting feature on Niemi’s passion for volunteering in her community and helping grow girls’ hockey, check out the story and photos by Marketing and University Communication students P.J.
