NEW Watershed Champion:
Kelly Ellis
NEW Water teamed up with the Green Bay Water Utility for the fifth annual World
Water Day event, to call attention to water issues in Northeast Wisconsin, and to
celebrate efforts to improve water quality.
Kelly Ellis was presented the NEW Watershed Champion award for her
contributions to advance educational opportunities in science, technology,
engineering and mathematics (STEM), through her role as Executive Director
of the Einstein Project, and founder of the Greater Green Bay STEM Network.
STEM skills are essential to effectively care for, and manage, our precious water
resources.
“We are blessed to live in a region where it isn’t hard to encourage individuals and
organizations to work together to amplify efforts and to create a bigger impact,”
said Ellis. “The Greater Green Bay STEM Network continues to grow through new
strategic partnerships, which fosters the sharing of our community’s precious
resources.”
