UW-Fond du Lac Foundation Board of Directors

The UW-Fond du Lac Foundation was established in 1974 by the college’s first dean, Willard Henken. He was joined by charter board members Dr. Norman O. Becker, Joseph S. Berger Sr., Harold “Danny” LaShay, and Dr. George M. Armstrong. The Foundation supports UW-Fond du Lac through its mission to promote excellence at UW-Fond du Lac while enhancing the educational and cultural activities available on its campus. The Foundation Board continues to provide this margin of excellence by providing scholarships and other support.  

The Foundation Board is comprised of 22 community members, as well as the Fond du Lac County Executive, the UW-Fond du Lac Regional Executive Officer and Dean, the UW-Fond du Lac Campus Administrator, and the Foundation’s Executive Director.
