"It's a joy to be part of the group that gets to help them (students) develop their future. I'm also from Marquette, my parents were both professors at NMU collectively for about 62 years, and I played hockey here. I have a very strong history and bond with this University as it's been such an enormous part of my entire life, and it's a privilege to be able to give back in a meaningful way."
