A is for alumni: UW-Green Bay grads earn Golden Apple accolades
Seen in Wednesday’s Log Extra, but worth repeating here: Our own Professional Program in Education was well represented once again at this year’s Golden Apple teaching awards, held last week and televised live. Three of the honorees in seven categories have UW-Green Bay ties — two are mid 2000s alumni and one is a certificate grad. These excellent educators say they couldn’t have done it without UW-Green Bay — and at least one hopes to return as a professor one day. Full story.
More on Moran, Apple alumna
One of our award-winning alumni educators, Vanessa Moran ’07, was featured — along with her amazing third-graders — on the front page of Saturday’s (April 21) Green Bay Press-Gazette. Under Moran’s guidance, her Meadowbrook Elementary School students are rallying around classmate Myles Welnetz, and two others in the class who also have autism. They’re looking to raise awareness about the disorder, and are hosting a run/walk this Saturday (April 28) to raise funds to support students with autism. The event, 2Myles4Austim, will be held at Meadowbrook Park in Howard. Full story.
