In June, alumni from the WAA: Washington, D.C. Chapter held a Badger sendoff party for Rebecca Blank at the U.S. Botanic Garden, showing their support as she prepared to leave her job as acting secretary at the U.S. Department of Commerce to become the next chancellor of UW-Madison. In her remarks, Blank said, “One thing is clear: UW alumni are loyal and enthusiastic about their school. … I take that level of Badger pride and enthusiasm as one of Wisconsin’s greatest strengths.” Go here for more about the university’s new chancellor.
