WHY I TEACH Glenn Hayes
Glenn Hayes, a professor of music at UW-Whitewater who is also Director of Bands, talks about what makes teaching rewarding — from the classroom to Lambeau Field to Carnegie Hall.

“I am so fortunate, I am so blessed, to be able to live in this world and on this campus and work with these incredible people and have it all done through music. It’s just the best thing in the world.”

Campus Kudos
Kudos to Jeffrey Pohorski, videographer at University Marketing and Communications, whose visual poetry will be on display at the virtual Midwest Video Poetry Festival next month. Pohorski’s video, “I Was An Ocean Away,” a UMC profile of poet and professor Marilyn Annucci, a professor of languages and literatures at UW-Whitewater, was one of 36 videos chosen for the festival from more than 1,600 submissions. The videos will be available to view for 48 hours during the festival on Nov. 19 and 20 at https://www.youtube.com/c/ArtLitLab.

Kudos to Hannah Keziah C. Agustin, a double major in film studies and English, whose paper, “Tech in Color: A Critical Analysis of the Portrayal of People of Color in HBO’s Silicon Valley and the Disproportionate Racial Makeup of the Tech Industry,” recently won the Pat Browne Undergraduate Paper Award in the annual Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (PCA/ACA). The undergraduate paper competition recognizes the best paper presented by an undergraduate in the Midwest PCA/ACA conference each year.
