Sunday’s Press-Gazette also published a first-person piece by Nancy (Ably) DePrey, the first person ever to receive a UWGB bachelor’s degree. “I remember feeling very proud to be a member of UW-Green Bay’s first graduating class, in June 1970,” DePrey wrote. Before UWGB was founded, she said, “You’d have to do your two years in Green Bay (at the UW Center) and go somewhere else to finish. Now, you could do it all here. The campus was growing, the excitement was here. It was something very special to be able to finish your education at UWGB.” DePrey recalled faculty members including James McHale and Jim Murray, as well.
