Notice: ALUMNI EMAIL UPDATE
Alumni email accounts (uwp.edu and rangers.uwp.edu) were deactivated Sunday, June 30, 2013.
Why is this change necessary? With the move from Microsoft Outlook to Microsoft Office 365, there are higher costs for maintenance of the email system and no guarantee that those costs will remain consistent. We encourage you to update your contact information with your new email address.
Gary Christensen ('89, business) lives in Salt Lake City and serves as chief financial officer of the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium a nonprofit organization in Utah. He is a CPA and prior to moving to Utah worked at a CPA firm in Racine until 2005. This month the Utah state CPA society ran a cover story in their nonprofit issue featuring Gary and his focus on building financial sustainability at the world-class aquarium in Utah.
Jake Nikolai ('07, business) has more than 100 volunteer hours at the Dane County Humane Society. Currently, he does canine enrichment but originally Jake designed Excel spreadsheets to analyze volunteer demographic information. "I started at UW-Parkside intending to earn a degree in computer science but I enjoyed Professor Jamie Wang's Financial Accounting class so much that I switched majors," Jake says. "He also helped me decide to further my accounting education by pursing a master's degree and becoming a CPA. I remember a lot of good conversations with friends. I had some people that I knew as acquaintances in high school but seeing them as UW-Parkside students caused me to become better friends with them. Meeting new people through classes or friends was great, too."
Daniel Helbling ('08, biological sciences) was one of 23 students to receive a master of science degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee at its 119th annual commencement exercises in May. Helbling's thesis was titled "Improving the Diagnosis and Recognition of Genetic Disorders through Advanced Molecular Techniques." Following graduation, he will continue his work in the Medical College of Wisconsin Human and Molecular Genetics Center.
Rob Clark ('04) was named the 2012-2013 Middle School Teacher of the Year for the Kenosha Unified School District. He has been teaching at Washington Middle School since 2005. Clark was nominated by his peers and received the honor during a banquet held at UW-Parkside in March.
