PLATTEVILLE- It was purely by accident Richard Braem came across the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. While attending a two-year UW center Braem found himself interested in microbiology. The guidance counselor gave him a list of three schools in the UW-system that had a microbiology program; Madison, Oshkosh and Platteville.

While visiting the UWP campus, Braem came to find out that UWP has no actual microbiology program, but he liked the campus so he stayed.

"I was able to interact with professors at a level not available to most UW students," Braem said.

Braem graduated from UWP in December of 1978, with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry.

"At that time, we started the Wall of Fame in Dr. Marilyn Tufte's lab. Every person who has ever worked for her in the last 25 years has signed that wall. But I was the first," Braem boasted.

In 2002, Braem received his masters in business administration from UW-Whitewater. Today he and his wife live in Janesville.

He is the corporate director of quality control for Protient, Inc., based out of Juda. Braem also oversees quality control functions of three other Protient plants as well as designing the quality control systems
