He is also a member of the St. Cloud State University Alumni Association Board and has been president of the executive committee for three years. Connie served on the board of directors for the United Way of Central Minnesota and chaired, at one time or another, all of its various committees. She currently serves on United Way’s allocation-distribution committee. They are also active volunteers at the Whitney Senior Center in St. Cloud and leaders of the weekly “Tuesday Humanities” discussion groups. The honors were officially bestowed on them at the Sartell Chamber banquet in late April. See related story on page 55.
