Board of Trustees

The UW-Sheboygan Foundation is led by a group of volunteer Trustees, many of whom are local business owners, UW-Sheboygan alumni or simply those with an interest in supporting students and higher education opportunities in Sheboygan County.

Board members meet the third Friday of every month and personally volunteer their own time and efforts and each fundraising event, from the Golf Outing to the mammoth Chicken & All That Jazz event.
