Many thanks to the UW-Whitewater Project Management students to planning, promoting, and implementing such successful projects during the Spring 2013 semester. Some successes of these students include raising over $1,000 for Treyton Kilar's Field of Dreams; working with Tyler Sailsbery of the Black Sheep Restaurant to showcase their use of healthy, locally grown ingredients; making W3 for visible to a larger audience through videos and website edits; and helping W3 become a more organized and sustainable organization. All student work from this semester on will be coming soon on our website! Thanks again and good luck with future endeavors!
