Join us on Saturday, March 17 for the 50th annual John Barth Foundation Breakfast to celebrate John Barth, a legendary coach and athletic director who inspired many during his 37 years at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

During his 16-year tenure as basketball coach, he led the team to a record 252 wins, including seven conference championships, and advanced to the N.A.I.A. national twice. However, his influence extended beyond the court, as he inspired a new generation of school teachers and administrators through his teaching of health and education classes. Barth helped develop many of the programs and facilities that are still enjoyed by the UW-Platteville community today, ensuring that his legacy of success carries on.
