Growing up, Madison Joy remembers how hard her mother worked to provide for her and her brother. She also remembers her mother making her promise that someday she would see Mady cross the stage to accept her college diploma. Mady’s mother passed away in 2008, well before Mady was old enough to make her mom’s wish come true. “All I ever wanted was to make her proud and fulfill my promise to her,” Mady says. “I knew I was going to college and I was going to do what I needed to do to succeed.” Mady will keep her promise to her late mother when she crosses the stage in Zorn Arena in May 20, becoming the first person in her family to earn a college degree.

While the late Mary Tyler Moore’s fictional Mary Richards was celebrated in recent weeks for showing the world that women belong in the newsroom, another — this time, real-life — female journalist in Nebraska is taking things one step further. The Blugold is showing the world that women not only belong in the newsroom, but can lead the newsroom. In January, the Omaha World-Herald named Melissa Matczak its new executive editor, marking the first time in the newspaper’s 127-year history that a woman holds the paper’s top editor position.
It was the legendary Brett Favre who inspired 70,000+ football fans to travel to Lambeau Field two summers ago to celebrate the quarterback’s induction into the Packers Hall of Fame, but it was a young Blugold who — literally — brought the emotional crowd to its feet early in the ceremony. Maddie Forrest, now a sophomore public relations major at UW-Eau Claire, sang the national anthem at the highly anticipated Hall of Fame event.

Over the years, Kyle Naber and his dad, David, have watched a lot of exciting basketball and football games together. But they agree that this year’s UW-Eau Claire Homecoming football game, despite a Blugold loss, was their best game yet. The father-son duo — the father an accomplished UW-Eau Claire grad and the son a successful student — sat side-by-side in the Carson Park press box as they worked together to announce the Blugolds' Homecoming football game.
Knowing it’s impossible to have one-on-one conversations with all of her 10,500+ Blugold peers about the equity, diversity and inclusivity issues she’s so passionate about, Kallie Friede is doing the next best thing — she’s helping organize events that encourage conversation around EDI issues that are critical to UW-Eau Claire’s goal of being a safe and welcoming place for everyone. This fall, as an intern in the Women’s & LGBTQ+ Resource Center, Kallie is helping to plan and bring to life two of those high-profile events: UW-Eau Claire’s National Coming Out Day celebration and the Eau Queer Film Festival.
UW-Eau Claire will again host a five-day festival, from Oct. 11-15, that celebrates the diversity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex and asexual communities through the screening and discussion of a number of powerful films.
