Presidential knowledge paid off big time for Mitch’s Witches at the La Follette School Student Association (LSSA) Fall 2019 Trivia Fundraiser.

More than 150 people celebrated the start of another academic year at the La Follette School’s annual Hill Fest picnic September 3. Director and Professor Susan Webb Yackee welcomed everyone, including 52 incoming graduate students.

Braving a northeast wind bringing 30-degree temperatures and snow flurries, three hearty La Follette School students – Patrick Landers, Chris Webb and Liz White – assisted with the City of Madison Parks Division’s clean-up effort at Tenney Park on Saturday, April 27. The La Follette School Student Association (LSSA) arranged this and seven other service opportunities during the 2017–18 academic year.
