Lincoln High School graduate John W. Miller has been appointed to the Library of Congress Trust Fund Board by President Barack Obama.
Miller, a Manitowoc native and 1992 Lincoln High alumnus, is the former president and CEO of Miller-St. Nazianz Inc. and the founder of Arenberg Holdings, LLC. He serves on the Board of the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and the University of Wisconsin Law School Board of Visitors.
After graduating from Lincoln High School, he earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Marquette University in 1996, a master's degree in public policy from Georgetown University in 2000 and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2006.
Wilson Jr. High 7th grader Lia Haile is featured in a new promotional video shot this month for U.S. Cellular's "Future of Good" campaign.
Lia won U.S. Cellular's contest last year for her inspirational work creating the Hopeful Hearts Club, which supports children and families at a Manitowoc homeless shelter called Hope House, including throwing birthday parties for children. U.S. Cellular donated $10,000 to Lia's group and the shelter.
"We have awesome students and an awesome community," said Wilson Principal Lee Thennes after seeing the new video showcasing Lia, Wilson and the Manitowoc community.
In the video, Lia said all students can help make a difference.
"It's about following your heart," she said. "Everybody has a gift or a talent or a passion. Use that gift to help others.... Watch the ripple effect of your one act of kindness spread far and wide."
