Special Notes

Dr. Sally Webb began her teaching career at the Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire on September 1, 1965. She was the recipient of an Excellence in Teaching Award in 1992 and the first Student Senate Advisor of the Year Award in 1998, as well as other awards.

Dr. Webb officially retired from teaching in 2002, but not from her commitment to faculty and students at UW-Eau Claire. Her fundraising work, which began in 2005 for the UW-Eau Claire Foundation, helps to create new scholarships, and enhance existing ones, for deserving students.

Thank You A letter of gratitude addressed to Dr. Sally Webb should be submitted directly to the department of communication and journalism program assistant.
