Local Alumni Recognition

UPDATE: based on guidance from WAA in Madison, our chapter will be waiting until 2022 to select and honor a Badger of the Year. In the meantime, plan to join WAA's virtual 2021 Founders Day event, scheduled for Feb 2.  More information should be coming soon!  

Honorees are UW alums who have made a lasting and significant contribution to the community within the borders of the Fox Valley Chapter. This includes Calumet, Outagamie, Waupaca and Winnebago Counties.
