Years ago after attending Lincoln high school in Manitowoc, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my life, but I did know that I wanted to get a college degree. The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc gave me that start. I became involved in the student government, cheerleading, theater, and many other activities, while starting a degree in the liberal arts. I did get my BS in Humanities and went on to start my own marketing and design business in Manitowoc. One of our four children also attended the UW-Manitowoc and thought, as I had years earlier, that the teachers were exceptional. Now I am retired and I just finished auditing two semesters of Spanish at UW-Manitowoc. Did I mention that I think having this facility of higher education in Manitowoc County is an awesome thing?!
