Snapshot: Friends, family congratulate Riopelle
Friends and family along with officials of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay gathered for brunch Saturday morning, Dec. 13, to honor Virginia (Ginny) Riopelle on the day she was to receive an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from UW-Green Bay.
The gathering in the atrium of Mary Ann Cofrin Hall preceded the University’s mid-year commencement at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, where Riopelle was presented the degree in front of an audience of about 2,000, early in the ceremony.
Riopelle is a longtime UW-Green Bay Trustee, successful University fundraiser and co-founder of the University’s award-winning Phuture Phoenix program.
