Top One & Tip One for Tom
A fundraiser for the Tom Bergmann HR Scholarship
By Maggie Loney, Claire Secrist, Megan Stapleton
UW-Eau Claire faculty and students continue to honor and remember beloved professor Thomas Bergmann through the annual Tom Bergmann Golf Outing. This year marks the fourth year this event will take place to raise money for a scholarship for human resources management students established in Bergmann’s name.
Dr. Bergmann began his tenure in 1975 as a professor at UW-Eau Claire and served the university and College of Business until 2003 when he lost a courageous battle with cancer. Along with being assistant dean for the College of Business, he instructed courses in human resource management, entrepreneurship, compensation theory, and an assortment of graduate courses. He was also faculty adviser for the student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) at UW-Eau Claire as well as an active member of the Chippewa Valley SHRM Chapter. “Tom really loved what he was doing,” said Marilyn Bergmann, his wife. “He truly loved working with students at the university. That’s where he really found his place.”
To honor Dr. Bergmann, a scholarship in his name was established in 2003 for junior and first semester senior human resource management majors who are active members of the UW-Eau Claire chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. The scholarship is awarded annually in the spring. Jenna Zelenka, a senior management/HR major from Marathon, WI, is the 2007-08 Bergmann HR scholarship recipient. She will receive an $800 scholarship as well as an additional $200 once she passes one of the Society for Human Resource Management professional exams.
This year’s Top One & Tip One for Tom Bergmann golf outing will be May 22, 2007 at the Pine Meadow Golf Course in Eau Claire, WI. The cost of the event is $50, which includes fees, prizes, food and refreshments and a $25 contribution to the Thomas Bergmann HR scholarship. (Non-golfers can attend the event for $15.) This event is open to all students and faculty members at UW-Eau Claire as well as members of the community who would like to partake in the festivities and remember Dr. Bergmann.
