UW-Green Bay wins Mayor’s Award in the Green Bay Holiday Parade

UW-Green Bay’s entry in the Downtown Green Bay Holiday Parade earned “most original” honors this year. UWGB’s small committee of determined volunteers won the Mayor’s Award for “Every time a bell rings, a Phoenix gets its wings.” The theme of the parade was “Sounds of the Season.”

In celebration of UWGB’s 50th Anniversary, UWGB Chancellor Gary Miller and Georgia Miller served as parade marshals. With help from the Dance Team of UW- Green Bay and UW-Green Bay Cheer Team, Green Bay Phoenix student-athletes, UWGB Alums, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Phuture Phoenix and family of UWGB employees, more than 50 people marched together, handing out candy and celebrating with the projected 10,000 plus in attendance. The Parade Committee also used the float for a service opportunity, collecting hundreds of school supply donations from UWGB faculty, staff, students and administrators, and local businesses, which will be donated in the weeks ahead to students in the Green Bay public schools.

A special 50th Anniversary Alumni Days gave UW-Green Bay alumni and friends a chance to reunite with the campus community October 16 and 17.
