Suburban residents serve on UWM Alumni Association board

 

MILWAUKEE — The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Alumni Association (UWMAA) has elected four new members to its Board of Trustees for terms in 2010-11 and announced the leadership team. Larry Schnuck of Whitefish Bay continues as president of the board. The board is the policymaking body of the UWMAA and monitors adherence to that policy to meet the mission of the UWMAA and the changing needs of its membership.

 

New board members include:

 

Brett P. Belden of Franklin, a patent attorney with the law firm of Foley & Lardner in Milwaukee. Belden received his bachelor’s degree from UWM in 2005 with a double major in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.

 

George P. Hinton of Milwaukee, chief administrative officer of Aurora Sinai Medical Center and Mid/East Market Leadership Team, part of Aurora Health Care. Hinton graduated from UWM in 1988 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance.

 

Rosalee Patrick of Wauwatosa, a transaction analyst and customer transaction coordinator. Patrick received her bachelor’s degree from UWM in 1991 with a concentration in Economics.

 

Michael Wolaver of Wauwatosa, owner and founder of Magellan Promotions LLC, a company that provides promotional products, corporate gifts, apparel and awards. Wolaver received his MBA from UWM in 2003.

 

The UWMAA Board of Trustees has also appointed leadership for the coming term:

 

Lawrence J. Schnuck of Whitefish Bay continues as president. Schnuck is a senior principal at the design firm of Kahler Slater, where he leads the Higher Education team. The team focuses on college and university campuses in the areas of medical, nursing, dental and health sciences education. Schnuck received his bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies from UWM in 1978 and his Master of Architecture degree with honors in 1986.

 

Allyson Nemec of Milwaukee has been named vice president for the coming term. Nemec is owner and president of Quorum Architects Inc. in Milwaukee. She graduated with a master’s degree in Architecture in 1990.

 

Ellen Suttner of Brookfield replaces Nemec as board secretary. Suttner is a senior manager for business development with the Revere Group in its Milwaukee office. She received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from UWM in 1991.

 

Filippo Carini of Brookfield will serve as board treasurer. Carini is deeply involved with UWM, having also served on the Athletic Board. Currently, he is the chief administrative officer for the United Way of Greater Milwaukee. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from UWM in 1988 with a focus in Accounting and Finance.

 

Spotlight: Board President Lawrence Schnuck

 

When UWM alumnus Lawrence Schnuck of Whitefish Bay was selected to take over as president of the UWM Alumni Association’s Board of Trustees, he gladly accepted and stepped into the roll without hesitation.

 

“I have always been a strong proponent of giving back to my community and university,” Schnuck says. “I have been involved at the university for many years, and this was a natural for me. This is an exciting time to be a graduate of UW–Milwaukee.” Schnuck is the 21st person to serve as president of the UWMAA Board of Trustees, an entity that has served the university since 1967.

 

As board president, Schnuck acts as an ambassador for UWM to its considerable alumni base. With over 140,000 alumni, the Alumni Association is a bridge from the alumni to UWM, fostering continued Panther Pride among its members. Schnuck is one of the most active members in the Alumni Association, taking part in many of the events that the UWMAA puts on each year.

 

“There continues to be a lot going on, both on campus and within the community,” Schnuck says. “The recent completion of a new Master Plan provides a road map for the future growth of the University. Chancellor [Carlos E.] Santiago has a strong vision for the institution that holds numerous possibilities for the success of the University, the region and the State of Wisconsin.”

 

Schnuck, a native of Kenosha, graduated from UWM with a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies in 1977 and his Master of Architecture degree with honors in 1986.

 

So what does he think about the direction of his alma mater? “This is an exciting time to be an alumnus of UWM,” he says. “The University has continued to evolve and transform from its inception in 1956. The vision and goals for the future of UWM coming out of the Master Plan are exciting.”

 

Schnuck should know something about the physical state of the school. He is a senior principal at the design firm of Kahler Slater, where he leads the Higher Education team. The team focuses on college and university campuses in the areas of medical, nursing, dental and health sciences education.

 

Schnuck has been a member of the UWMAA board for seven years, and began his service as president in summer 2009. He sees a bright future for his alma mater.

 

“UWM’s continued growth in outreach and research demonstrates the strong commitment to the school by the University of Wisconsin System. UW–Milwaukee’s positive impact on the city, southeastern Wisconsin and the state is huge; as UWM grows and strengthens the reputation of the University, the value of all our degrees grows with it."

 

About the UWM Alumni Association: The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Alumni Association was established to support UWM by engaging alumni and providing meaningful opportunities for alumni to experience a lifetime of pride through their affiliation and participation with UWM. UWMAA members are partners in leading UWM to excel as the state’s premier urban education and research institution. The UWMAA is governed by a board consisting of 24 trustees elected from the alumni members of the association and one trustee designated by each recognized UWMAA Alumni Chapter.
