‘Alice in Dairyland’ finalists are UW-Green Bay grads
Five women have been selected to compete for the title of Wisconsin’s 64th Alice in Dairyland. What are the odds that two of them, Holly Melander from Merrill and Amy Roden from West Bend, would be alumni of UW-Green Bay? Well, while we don’t have an ag school, we do have solid offerings in public relations and organizational communication, and that’s what the “Alice” tradition is all about. Melander is a December 2009 communication grad who has worked in PR and whose family had a maple syrup operation. Roden, a December 2010 grad, works for her family dairy farm and has promoted beekeeping and the state’s honey industry. Alice in Dairyland is a one-year staff appointment by the Division of Agricultural Development to be a roving ambassador promoting Wisconsin products. This year’s designee will be announced in mid-May. To see bios on the two UW-Green Bay grads and the others.
