Story Idea
Mary and Amanda Berg will be sitting next to each other on Saturday, Dec. 21, when UW-Eau Claire holds its Winter Commencement in Zorn Arena. The mother-daughter duo from Eau Claire’s north side both majored in management-human resources and will receive bachelor’s degrees in business administration.
The Berg’s UW-Eau Claire experience is truly a family affair.
       Mary, age 47, works full time at Hutchinson Technology where she is a materials leader worker. Amanda, age 22, who graduated from North High School in 1998, has a GPA of 3.8 and has completed two internships at the Pleasant Company. Mary’s son Cory, a sophomore at UW-Eau Claire, is in the same major as his mother and sister.
