Despite a stormy, rainy morning UWM athletes turned out in force to welcome students back to Hartford University Elementary School Tuesday, Sept. 3, with high fives and cheers. Pounce, Chancellor Mark Mone, Provost Johannes Britz and School of Education Dean Alan Shoho were also on hand to join Hartford Principal Shannon Kilsdonk and staff in making sure the school year got off to a rousing start at the school, which is located in the midst of the UWM campus.
This is the fourth year for the welcome-back-to-school event, which included the men’s and women’s soccer teams. It’s something the athletes always enjoy, said men’s soccer coach Kris Kelderman. The men’s team, which only returned at 2:30 am from a game in Iowa, was full of energy at the 7:15 am welcome.
