Before taking this position with United Way of Sheboygan County nearly four years ago, I worked at Lakeland University in the Alumni Relations Office. In my last summer of working there, I wanted my employer to take advantage of one of the biggest volunteer opportunities in this community: the Volunteer Center of Sheboygan County’s annual Day of Caring.

UWSC Expanding Support for Community Programs

UWSC Expanding Support for Community Programs Thumbnail

In May of this year, United Way of Sheboygan County (UWSC) was proud to share the results of the annual Community Investment Process. As noted, twenty agencies and thirty-eight programs received investment funding for the July 2017- June 2018 fiscal year. Most of the recipient agencies are long-standing partners with United Way and the funded programs have been supported for many years. However, this year three new programs were added. Two programs that were newly added into the investment portfolio are supported by UWAY veteran agencies, and the other program will be run by an agency new to the UWSC Partner Agency group.

Point In Time Homeless Count is July 26 Thumbnail

Once again the end of July signals the time for the bi-annual Point in Time Homeless Count performed by the local agencies supported by HUD funds. Agencies such as Lakeshore CAP, the Salvation Army, Safe Harbor and others who try to supply emergency assistance to those who are homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness are required to sponsor a semi-annual physical count of the individuals or families who are living on the street in our communities.

United Way of Sheboygan County Director Moves into Full-time Role Thumbnail

I’m humbled and honored to begin my full time position as the Executive Director of the United Way of Sheboygan County.  While I have been working in this role on a part time basis for the past six months, I am excited to fully embrace the position. I was certainly familiar with the United Way prior to my employment, but I have more recently learned how fortunate Sheboygan County is to be served by this organization.  The mission of working with so many wonderful organizations and partner agencies for the goal of improving lives is one which I am looking forward to.  It is my hope and commitment that with my leadership of the team, we will continue the rich tradition of the United Way of Sheboygan County.

Born on Third Base

I recently had the privilege of giving an address at the Boys & Girls Club of Sheboygan County Leadership Awards dinner. My mission was to impress upon the attendees the merits of donating to the Boys & Girls Club. As I stood at the podium looking out on my audience, I couldn't help but notice that I was addressing some of the most successful people in the county: captains of industry, wealthy business people, doctors, lawyers and judges. I, myself, have been fortunate enough to find success both personally and professionally throughout my adult life. As I have gotten older, I have given increasing thought to the roots of that success. Was I just "special"? Was I a harder worker than everyone else? Were other people simply not as good as me or, worse yet, just lazier? Doubtless, the temptation is great to cast our personal narrative in a light most favorable and the value of hard work and talent cannot credibly be debated. That said, I am increasingly of the belief that what separates the "successful" from the "non", at least materially, are circumstances that have little to do with being special.

It's a Process

It's a Process Thumbnail

Another year of a successful campaign and community investment process has come to a close. Without the support from our community of individuals, organizations, and businesses in Sheboygan County, none of our great work would be possible. Within the United Way, lots of credit goes to the volunteer members of the Community Action Team and Board of Directors that work diligently to assure donor dollars are invested wisely and with purpose.
