Disabled hunters get helping hand, with Pamperin’s leadership
The lead sports item in today’s Green Bay Press-Gazette is about volunteer efforts to help disabled hunters get back into the woods to enjoy their sport. One such group is Challenge the Outdoors of Shiocton, headed by Keith Pamperin. He, of course, is the 1970 grad for whom Pamperin Hall is named, and the recipient of the University’s Distinguished Alumni Award. A traffic accident in college permanently affected his own mobility and nearly cost him his legs, and he’s still thankful doctors patched him up well enough to pursue his successful career and hobbies including hunting. “My work with disabled hunters is incredibly important to me,” Pamperin is quoted. “I’m amazed by their fortitude and gumption. All they need is a helping hand.” Nice human interest story, turning the spotlight on one of UW-Green Bay’s own.
