August E-newsletter

Congratulations to us—the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Alumni Association! On July 29, it was my honor to accept our certificate of induction as a full member into the 1866 Cornerstone Society. The Alumni Association is a vital cog in protecting and enhancing the legacy of UW-Platteville. Thank you alumni and, as we are able, let’s continue to give of our time, talents, and treasures.

On Aug. 3, UW-Platteville attire was evident in Madison, Wisconsin and Davenport, Iowa. The Alumni Association again hosted a tailgate party and baseball game in Madison, but for the first time in Davenport, Iowa. Thanks to Dan and Tristan. We’ll look for you next year when the Alumni Association will again take us out to the ballgame.

Plans are coming together for a very special Homecoming Hustle. The focus this year is to raise funds to establish the Kirk U’ren and Jennifer Steiner Memorial Scholarship. Both UW-Platteville alumni, Jennifer and Kirk passed away in a car accident earlier this year. We ask everyone in the Pioneer community (and beyond) to show their spirit and raise money for this scholarship. Registration starts at 7:15 a.m. at Williams Fieldhouse on Homecoming, Oct. 14. Lace up your shoes up and join in. Check the website for more information.

“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thought, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst ... a spark that creates extraordinary results.” -Wade Boggs

Forever. Pioneers.
