Radder award, Jefferson rally mark busy spring for Phuture Phoenix
It’s been a busy spring for UW-Green Bay’s signature Phuture Phoenix program, which just last week had two important year-end events. On Wednesday, May 2, Phuture Phoenix mentor Brittany Brocker was awarded the Whitney Radder Outstanding Role Model award for her work with students at West De Pere Middle School. Radder was a UW-Green Bay freshman and Phuture Phoenix mentor who was killed in a car crash two years ago. Then on Thursday, May 3, the Phoenix women’s basketball team visited Green Bay’s Jefferson Elementary School for a fun and informative pep rally that focused on the importance of going to college. The event was part of an innovative pilot partnership between Phuture Phoenix and Jefferson. Click here for full details and a photo gallery.
