NMU Student First Recipient of Ganzert Memorial Fund

May 8, 2019

Marquette, MI – Todd Rose, a senior communication studies major at Northern Michigan University and Escanaba High School graduate, has been selected as the first recipient of the Dr. Charles F. Ganzert Memorial Fund. The new fund is awarded to a deserving NMU student in honor of Ganzert, who taught broadcasting classes for 23 years before dying suddenly in the spring of 2016.

Dwight Brady and Todd Rose.

“It is an absolute honor to have been chosen as the first student recipient of the Dr. Ganzert Memorial Fund,” said Rose. “I met Dr. Ganzert before coming to NMU, and I could sense his passion for this program and its students.”

NMU Professor Dwight Brady, a longtime friend and colleague of Ganzert, is chair of the fund’s selection committee. He said he feels Rose is a great fit.

“Todd embodies a lot of the same characteristics I remember about Chuck. He is hard working, talented, professional and very humble.”

Brady added that Rose has distinguished himself by not only earning top grades, but by consistently going above and beyond with his involvement in live video productions of NMU sports and his work at Public Eye News on WNMU-TV.

The Dr. Charles F. Ganzert Memorial Fund was set up by his wife and partner of 30 years, Patricia Cianciolo of the NMU Social Work Department. She and the many others who contributed to the fund look forward to seeing this endowment continue, helping NMU students engage in life-changing professional internships.

Girl Scouts Celebrate National Bridging Week May 4-11

May 8, 2019

Marquette, MI – This year, Girl Scouts throughout northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula will be joining thousands of Girl Scouts across the nation during National Girl Scout Bridging Week, May 4–11. Bridging, when girls advance to the next level in Girl Scouts, is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life, because it’s a defining moment when she becomes aware of her achievements and is ready for new adventures and responsibilities. It’s also a celebration of all she has achieved throughout the year, such as earning badges; completing Journey’s; and earning one of Girl Scout’s highest awards Bronze, Silver, or Gold.

This year Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes will be home to many bridging events throughout our area. These events promise to be fun and memorable for everyone involved.

Girl Scouts sets the gold standard in girl leadership development, building girls of courage, confidence, and character while they have so much fun! In every level Girl Scouts girls are tasked with learning life skills and helping the community. One Girl Scout said, “I learned that a simple task how goes a long way and helps my community and bigger ways. Every volunteer work I do helps others and I know they appreciate it. It helps me know that you don’t always have to get a reward for doing work sometimes the reward is simply just making another person feel less stressed about something.”

Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes (GSNWGL) partners with 5,000 volunteers, serves approximately 16,000 girls, covering 58 counties across northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. For more information on how to join, volunteer, reconnect, or donate, call 888.747.6945 or visit gsnwgl.org. GSNWGL is a proud United Way partner program.
