City of Oshkosh Honored at Community Breakfast
The UW Oshkosh Foundation's seventh annual Community Breakfast was held on Tuesday, September 18, 2012. The featured speaker was Blois Olson, principal of Fluence Media, a Minneapolis-based strategic communications firm. Olson is seen as a leading innovator in media and content strategies in all channels of media and marketing. He has spent time managing political campaigns and is the co-founder of MN-Politics.com and the former co-publisher of "Politics in Minnesota." Olson graduated from UW Oshkosh in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in political science and journalism.
The breakfast also included the presentation of the Collaboration in Action Leadership Award to the City of Oshkosh. The award is annually given to an individual or an organization in Wisconsin who advances the mission of the University and whose efforts impact educational, cultural and economic change. The most recent example of collaboration between UW Oshkosh and the city is the purchase and revitalization of the downtown City Center Hotel.
