From the President...

Hello Spring!


Dear Harvard Club of Wisconsin Community,


With spring comes more people getting the Covid 19 vaccine and eventually an end to this pandemic. My dad drove from La Crosse to my place here in Milwaukee just to get his first shot of the vaccine. He said he felt “relieved” after his shot of hope and then returned to La Crosse to bunker down until his next dose. No spring break parties for him.


I recently received a letter from President Bacow with his words of encouragement to the Asian American community and shared it with my family. Read President Bacow's letter here and please share it with your family and friends.


I have a few announcements I would like to share with the club. Several high school students from Wisconsin have been accepted to Wisconsin early action and the Harvard Club of Wisconsin would like to congratulate them. We continue to wait for regular decision and will provide an update when that information becomes available. Many thanks to the interviewers who volunteered this past year.


Thank you to our HCW members who gave to the Scholarship Fund in Stuart Parsons name. I have been in contact with the Harvard College Fund and once it is finalized we will share the names of those who gave so generously.


The HCW Nominations committee is asking for names of members willing to serve on the HCW Board, particularly those individuals living outside Milwaukee or Madison. Also, the offices of President, Vice President, and Secretary are elected on a yearly basis. All officers are eligible for re-election. Currently, the office of Secretary is open so please feel free to nominate yourself.


Finally, note the next event (listed below) presented by the Harvard Clubs of the Great Lakes. They will welcome Harvard professor and Michigan native, Alexandra (Sasha) Killewald to their speaker series. Professor Killewald is a Professor of Sociology and the current chair of Harvard's Ph.D. Program in Social Policy. She uses quantitative methods to study inequality in the contemporary United States.


I hope everyone continues to stay safe and thank you for being a part of the Harvard Club of Wisconsin.

President, Harvard Club of Wisconsin
