Thank You, 2016-17 Ambassador Class!

WiSys' largest ambassador class yet finished the school year strong. WiSys would like to say thank you and congratulate those ambassadors who graduated this spring:

  • Josh Dust, UW-Platteville, Electrical Engineering: Josh will go on to work with Alliant Energy as a Substation Engineer
  • Piage Hagen, UW-Platteville, Electrical Engineering: Paige is moving to Detroit, Michigan to work with L&L Products as an Automation Engineer
  • Katie Schulteis, UW-Platteville, Biology: Katie is moving to Middleton, Wisconsin to work with Pharmaceutical Product Development and pursuing a Stem Cell Technologies certificate through Madison College
  • Anna Miller, UW-River Falls, Neuroscience and Psychology: Anna is traveling abroad

Together, the 2016-17 class of ambassadors hosted many informational and networking events, including ice cream socials, Applied Research Grant sessions and recruitment events for next year's ambassadors.

The UW-Platteville ambassadors, all of whom graduated this spring, successfully pulled off the second annual Prototype Hackathon on their campus. Josh Dust, who began as an ambassador in 2015, said the event was the culmination of the connections he's made throughout his time as an ambassador.

"Being an Ambassador for WiSys Technology Foundation for the past two years has really opened my eyes to all the talented individuals with great ideas on my campus," Dust said. "If it were not for this program I wouldn't have met so many bright minds outside of my own department, which has been an amazing experience."

WiSys is currently recruiting for the 2017-18 ambassador class. Learn more here.
