The Alumni Relations Office reports a nice turnout the “Friend and Foe” reception prior to the UW-Milwaukee-UW-Green Bay women’s basketball showdown at the Kress Center in March. The big crowd (3,000-plus) saw a thrilling Phoenix win, and an impressive halftime victory by Mary Kulenkamp ‘06 (who now works on campus in Admissions as an enrollment services specialist). Shhhh — don’t tell UWM, but Mary is a former Phoenix basketball star. Just a week or two earlier, Marquis Hines ’90, also a former Phoenix basketball alumnus took the halftime crown at a UW-Milwaukee alumni event.

Remembering UW-Green Bay friend Jerome Quinn

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Jerome Quinn, 99, died last Friday (Feb. 29) in Green Bay. A member of the city council, county board and board of education, he was perhaps best known as a 20-year representative in the State Assembly, where he was an advocate for locating the new UW campus in Green Bay. His son told the Green Bay Press-Gazette, “(They) got it here and that created a lot of jobs, and meant a lot to a lot of these students through the years.”
