Campus Campaign 2010: Staff members receive Classified Staff Grant Fund awards

Campus Campaign 2010 graphicThis week's Campus Campaign highlight is the UW-Eau Claire Foundation's Classified Staff Grant Fund.

Recently receiving $250 awards from the fund for advancing their education were Judith Gray, academic department associate for the UW-Eau Claire women's studies program, and Barbara Arnold, academic publications and curriculum coordinator in the UW-Eau Claire Registrar's Office.

The Classified Staff Grant Fund was established by Linda Haag and Susie Warden, who completed bachelor's degrees at UW-Eau Claire while working as full-time members of the university's classified staff. They created the Classified Staff Grant Fund after completing their degrees to make certain other classified staff members had a similar opportunity.

Campus Campaign gifts from UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff can be directed to the Classified Staff Grant Fund. Learn more about the fund and how to contribute to Campus Campaign 2010-11.
