UW System: A $24 billion impact on Wisconsin's economy
Friday, November 23, 2018
Janell Topczewski entered UW-Parkside as the third person in her family to attend the university.
Janell’s brother Joseph graduated from UW-Parkside in 2007 and is now a chemistry professor at the University of Minnesota. Her brother Jeremy graduated in 2011 and is an art teacher in the Racine Unified School District. Janell also graduated in 2011 and recently joined CNH Industrial Capital as a credit analyst, after serving in various roles with Racine County Economic Development Corporation for seven years.
Even though UW-Parkside is the youngest university in the UW System — celebrating 50 years of serving the region this year — having multiple family members attend is not uncommon.
