This Commencement Speech needs a listen!

Riley-Garbe-2-624x416Riley Garbe first came to UW-Green Bay as a fifth-grader on a Phuture Phoenix field trip, where a visit to the campus turned into a dream of one day graduating from college. Despite surviving a difficult childhood that included witnessing abuse and violence and moving from home-to-home, Garbe entered the University on a Phuture Phoenix scholarship. He was recognized by the Alumni Association as the University’s Most Outstanding Student at the Fall 2017 Commencement. He was also nominated and selected from all graduates as the student commencement speaker.

Riley’s Commencement speech is definitely one worth listening to! Here are his remarks to his fellow graduates, which were interrupted by applause and drew an emotional standing ovation from fellow classmates, friends and family in attendance.

Alumni Erdman, Prestby, Brinker, work on ‘snowy’ data collection

TomSnowy-624x468Look for birds and you may find Tom Erdman ’86 (Population Dynamics) and many of his proteges. The recently retired Richter Museum curator was working with a team to safely trap and secure snowy owls to be examined, fitted with a transmitter and released. The work is part of Project SNOWstorm. Research started in late 2013 to study the habits and assist with conservation of the big, beautiful white birds. UW-Green Bay alumnus Tom Prestby ’16 (Environmental Science and Policy) (pictured) is among the snowy trackers. Dave Brinker ’77 (Science and Environmental Change) is the lead scientist. Paul Smith from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel describes the people, the process and the importance.
