CAMPUS C O N V E R S A T I O N S

Taking Flight The Green Bay Audubon Student Conservation Chapter earned the distinction of being the first Audubon college campus chapter in the nation! The chapter continues to spread its wings by completing volunteer work in the community and working hard to promote and instill bird conservation. Five students even traveled to Washington, D.C. to advocate for shore birds this spring.

Heim gift provides scholarships in perpetuity The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Foundation received notice of a sizeable gift from The Ronald C. and Pauline P. Heim Charitable Fund: A fund of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. Announced in April, the Foundation expects to receive about $75,000 annually, which will be designated for scholarships in the name of Ronald C. and Pauline P. Heim. “We admire the generous philanthropic spirit of Ronald and Pauline Heim,” said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller. “This gift is remarkable and through their commitment to student scholarships, they will help countless students pursue their dreams of earning a college degree at UW-Green Bay. Scholarships provide both a financial and motivational boost to hardworking, dedicated students.”

Mrs. Heim established the endowed fund to assure selected nonprofits receive critical annual support in perpetuity. The support is projected to reach in excess of $800,000 each year across the region. UW-Green Bay was one of 30 selected nonprofits in Northeast Wisconsin to benefit from the endowment. The Heims met in Milwaukee and married in 1951, settling in Green Bay where Pauline worked for what is now Berners-Schober Associates, Inc. In 1970, they founded Trowelon, Inc., a producer of corrosion- and abrasion-resistant floor coatings, with Ron as president and Pauline as vice president. The Heims ran the business until Ron died in 1992. Pauline passed away in January 2018.
