The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions has welcomed Justin Stigler as its new Wisconsin Covenant coordinator.
The Wisconsin Covenant program was created by former Gov. Jim Doyle. It encourages eighth grade students in Wisconsin to sign a pledge and commit to, first, earning a high-school diploma. In return for maintaining at least a “B” average in high school, completing classes to prepare for higher education, being good, participatory citizens and meeting state and federal financial aid deadlines, students applying for admission to a UW System institution, a state technical college or a private college or university in the state earn a place and path to a degree.
Stigler, born and raised in Waukesha, is a graduate of Carroll College, now Carroll University.
He served as a football coaching intern at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Ariz., and also worked for the Wisconsin Lutheran College football program before returning to Wisconsin to enroll as a graduate student at UW Oshkosh, where he continued to coach football.
Stigler served as an associate director of admissions for Lakeland College for two years before returning to UW Oshkosh as the Wisconsin Covenant coordinator.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
