OUR 2016 LAMP OF KNOWLEDGE SPEAKER, MAYOR JIM SCHMITT
Mayor Jim Schmitt was elected the
41st Mayor of Green Bay in April 2003 and has been re-elected in
2007, 2011 and 2015. He is the second longest serving Mayor in
Green Bay's history, and (among many other accomplishments) has
worked hard to secure new investments to Green Bay neighborhoods,
kept budgets below state-imposed levy limits, and promoted a
healthier, safer workforce and general public.
Thank you to Mayor Schmitt for sharing your success stories with our audience and encouraging our students to reach for their dreams as they become the leaders of tomorrow!
OUR 2015 LAMP OF KNOWLEDGE SPEAKER, TIM CLUE
Award-winning educator, published playwright, and stand-up comedian Tim Clue helped us create an evening full of laughter and inspiration, encouraging our audience to be comfortable in discomfort, and not take life too seriously.
Hailing from Chicago, Mr. Clue has entertained a former President and opened for Jerry Seinfeld.
We'd like to extend our thanks for promoting energy, laughter
and engagement among all those in attendance.
