UWM graduate student Kimberly Stuart was chosen to participate in the Green Bay Packers’ annual “Salute to Service” game on Sunday.
Stuart will be part of the 70-person flag detail during the national anthem. The Packers play the Indianapolis Colts at Lambeau Field at 3:25 p.m.
Stuart is a U.S. Air Force veteran and Wisconsin Air National Guard retiree, having served in the 128th Air Refueling Wing.
“I am honored to stand on the frozen tundra beside my brothers and sisters this Sunday to represent my nation, service, county, school and nonprofit organization as an extension of a very important event in the lives of the Packers organization and the greater Green Bay community,” Stuart said.
Stuart is pursuing a master’s degree at UWM in nonprofit management and leadership. She also serves as executive director of a local all-volunteer nonprofit organization, Veterans for Diversity, Inc.
