Those honored for distinguished achievements were Stacey Nellen-Kolze ’98 (Technical Theatre), owner of Nell’s Wigs and Boutique; Marty (Martha) Stanley ’77 (Managerial Systems), president of Dynamic Dialog, Inc.; and John Mathys ’87 (Business Administration) and David Withbroe ’87 (Business Administration and Communication Processes), co-owners of Dental City.

In his acceptance speech, Withbroe summed-up the sentiments of all of the award winners… “To answer the questions… ‘What role or part did my UWGB experience help get me where I am today? What part did it have for me personally?’ ‘EVERYTHING.’” See the photos.
