It was such an honor to attend the grand opening of Alumni Park on the UW-Madison campus. Plans for the park, nestled between the Memorial Union and the Red Gym, had been in place long before I worked at the Wisconsin Alumni Association. To see big dreams of an open green space at the edge of Lake Mendota realized filled my big Badger heart with a lot of pride.

I was also privileged to contribute some content to the Alumni Park website. It was so interesting to research fellow alumni like Gaylord Nelson and Jake Wood, and play amateur detective to learn about Badger traditions like U-Rah-Rah.
