2013 Wisconsin Public Service Volunteer Awards
Morgan, Senior, Bay Port High School, received the WPS/Schreiber Volunteer Youth Award. Morgan began to volunteer at the age of seven when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She then became engaged in the Service Learning Club at Bay Port High School. Over the past four years, Morgan has surpassed 1,500 hours of volunteer services throughout Northeast Wisconsin. She has focused most of her efforts through the American Cancer Society raising money through several events, including the Relay for Life, Breast Health Walk, Runway for a Cure, American Cancer Birthday Run, and many other cancer related events. Morgan has also assisted people with a variety of health issues by volunteering at both St. Vincent and St. Mary's Hospitals. Morgan continued to volunteer even when she was facing some of her own health challenges. At the age of 14, she was diagnosed with a disease that caused a swelling of the optic nerve and fluid on the brain, causing her to lose her peripheral vision and could have caused permanent blindness. After months of doctors' appointments and tests, she underwent brain surgery. Even during this emotionally and physically difficult time, Morgan continued to volunteer. Kris Shuller and Erin Davison, Anchors for Local WFRV-TV 5 News are in the photograph with Morgan.

HSSD Launches 3rd Grade Financial Literacy Program
The Howard-Suamico School District launched a new financial literacy program for 3rd grade students. Through a DPI financial literacy grant and the support of Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, each 3rd grade student received a Penny the Pig piggy bank. The four slotted piggy bank teaches students the concepts of “saving,” “spending,” “donating,” and “investing.”
Financial institution representatives from Associated Bank, Bank Mutual, BMO Harris Bank, Fox Communities Credit Union and Nicolet Bank introduced the students to the program through classroom presentations. Follow up take home activities will be on-going throughout the school year. Students will track their spending habits and periodically report on their experience in allocating money to the four areas.
Students Reaching Out
The POPS team (Peer on Problem Solving) which is Bay View's leadership group of Peer Listeners and Violence Prevention, wanted to give our Bay View Middle School students an opportunity to express their love and concern for the staff and students of Sandy Hook Elementary. The students of Sandy Hook are not returning to their building, but will return to an unused school in a nearby town. The POPS team had a banner made that simply says. YOU ARE LOVED. Bay View Staff and students signed their name on the banner. Staff and students filled out “You Are Loved-O-Gram“during their lunch hours. Our hope is that Sandy Hook would hang the banner in their new school as a welcome reminder of love not loss.
