Happy Holidays!

Many thanks for your support

With the holidays upon us and 2016 is drawing to a close, the UPAA-W Board of Directors and officers would like to take this moment to express our gratitude for your involvement and support.  Together,  we made 2016 another successful and fun year!

UPAA-W has continued to provide scholarships to well-deserving students at various UP campuses as well as here in Wisconsin.  We’ve also reached out to the community through our Feed the Hungry program as well as promoted cultural awareness through our annual Value Our Heritage symposium.

It was not all work but rather a load of true UP spiritism.  For all the hard work that we’ve done, we’ve always mixed them up with some fun. We look forward to the new year with great optimism and hope.  Once again, let’s all make 2017 another fun and great year!
