We’ve been getting inquires lately about whether or not the mid-year convocation — something of a custom on campus for the last half dozen years or so — will return for January 2016. The answer is “no,” in a way. The event is being revamped and reorganized and rescheduled for mid-February. You can expect to see something on the new program — still a celebration of new emeriti appointments and length of service honorees — in the coming days.
It’s almost time for another semester, and that means almost time for mid-year Convocation. Per tradition, the ceremony will honor UW-Green Bay faculty and staff members who are celebrating employment anniversaries this year. Congratulations (spoiler alert!) to the following folks:
40 years: Mary Baranek
35 years: Sharon Dimmer, Thomas Erdman
30 years: Marie Helmke, Sylvia “Mimi” Kubsch
25 years: Mona Christensen, Gregory Davis, Warren Johnson, Karen Sevick, Christine Style
