From Humble Beginnings Come Great Things
Marshall Wick, a UW-Eau Claire mathematics professor emeritus, and his wife, Carol,
are longtime donors to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation. Their first gifts in the
1970s were modest, but throughout the years the Wicks continued to make increasingly
larger gifts. They established the Marshall Wick Mathematics Scholarship at the
time of their retirement, and in 2003 the Wicks made a substantial gift to the
UW-Eau Claire Foundation through a gift annuity which will assist students long
into the future.
"I am especially pleased that with all its new programs and initiatives,
the university has not lost sight of its primary role of providing excellent
undergraduate teaching," Wick said.
Wick graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 1951 and was a professor at UW-Eau Claire
for 35 years. All three of the family's sons attended UW-Eau Claire, and one
son, Michael Wick, is the interim associate vice chancellor of academic affairs
and graduate studies.
