The 30th annual Melvin Lurie Memorial Prize was presented to Mary Griefenkamp. Mary earned her MHRLR degree 28 years after her UWM B.A. in History. It followed the realization that after twenty years in human resources she needed the graduate degree to advance, to learn and to gain broader perspective. Mary currently works as Global Compensation Manager for Sensient Technologies Corporation, a company with 4000 employees worldwide.
