KaNisha Flemming – Memorial Event

“Smile Beautiful” Green Bay Benefit Dinner for Kanisha Flemming
May 3, 2014
3:00pm – 7:00pm
University of Wisconsin – Green Bay Mauthe Center

KaNisha, M.T Flemming, age 22, of Chilton, died on January 12, 2014 following a short battle with Leukemia. KaNisha was a senior at University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, where she was scheduled to graduate this May with a double major in Psychology and Human Development. KaNisha had the intent to graduate in May and pursue a graduate degree with a desire to help troubled teens. While attending UWGB, she was also a member of Circle K, Phi-Kappa-Phi, Psi Chi, the Psychology & Human Development Club, and her name was consistently found on the Dean’s List. There is nothing that can compare to the caring, inspirations and magnetic personality that KaNisha possessed. She lit up a room with her warm, tender smile and showed so much love to her family and friends. She went out of her way to cheer people up; the world was a better place because of the living presence of KaNisha.
