Chancellor Beverly Kopper and her team selected the 2017 Founders Day "Distinguished Alumni" recipients last week and, from among many nominees, Kwame Salter has been selected to receive the Distinguished Alumni for Professional Achievement Award.  Each year, since 1955, UW-Whitewater celebrates the founding of their institution and the contributions and achievements of their over 90,000 graduates.  UW-Whitewater recognizes select alumni for their professional achievement, community/regional service, or service to the university.

The Founders Day event, which begins with an on-campus reception, followed by lunch and the awards presentation, will be held on April 22, 2017. Congratulations, Kwame Salter!
