Sonja (Sunny) Reichertz, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin 02-13_Reichertz_JU

UW grad student Sunny Reichertz has checked daily on state legislature news, tracking all bills that were of interest to 1000 Friends of Wisconsin and its many environmentally conscious members. She was also in charge of the group’s print and web Legislative Update. The staff say she’s not only intelligent and diligent, she’s a delight in the office.

Michael Shoultz, New Harvest Foundation 02-13_Shoultz_JU

Michael Shoultz has volunteered for the New Harvest Foundation for nearly six years.  He’s done much more than coordinate most of the nonprofit’s communications, and recruit innumerable board members.  His superb skills allowed him to create and run the New Harvest Art Auctions, raising thousands of dollars to support LGBT grantees.
