UWM gives back on Day of Service

Rather than sit back and relax, several members of the UWM community spent the Martin Luther King Day Jr. of Service the way it was intended — by serving others.

Students, faculty, staff and alumni spent the day at South Division High School, where they helped paint inspiring murals on the walls of the school.

“This was a great opportunity to participate in a day that means so much to so many people,” said UWM alumna Tanya Wiedenhoeft, who was participating in the day of service for the first time. “I’m really happy to be a part of something bigger, rather than taking the day off and staying home.”
