COWS’ successful recent events in Green Bay are paying off in multiple ways. Larry Smith, UW Green Bay Assistant Professor of Social Change and Development, is motivating students and community members behind the Sustaining Wisconsin project. Larry’s commitment to social change is rivaled only by his commitment to noon basketball games on the UWGB campus, where he also networks with other UWGB staff about prospects and possibilities.
More significantly, UW-Green Bay has provided COWS our first “field staff person” on the Sustaining Wisconsin project. Charis (care-iss) Hoff, a third year Social Change and Development major at UWGB, will join COWS and the Sustaining Wisconsin project this summer working in Green Bay building community networks, giving presentations, and keeping us all up to date about what’s up in the greater Green Bay area. A Green Bay native, Charis sees great opportunities for students to both get involved and get experience, providing local flavor while building the statewide dialog. Charis will be joining us after completing her Spring semester.
Larry Smith, Charis Hoff, and David Wood talk about bringing Sustaining Wisconsin to Green Bay.
