La Follette School Director Susan Yackee joined former U.S. Senator Herb Kohl and commissioner emeritus of baseball Allan H. "Bud" Selig for a studio portrait following an interview at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Longtime friends, Kohl and Selig grew up together in Milwaukee and became fraternity brothers at UW–Madison before graduating in 1956. Both received the 2014 Distinguished Alumni Award presented by the Wisconsin Alumni Association and are featured in its On Wisconsin magazine. Kohl serves on the La Follette School’s new Board of Visitors.
