On February 28, 2022, Midwest Minority Officials Association (MMOA) hosted a special Black History Month salute for newly appointed WIAA Associate Director LeVar Ridgeway and new Alverno College head golf coach Richard Badger as part of a day-long salute to excellence and achievement at their brand new Associated Bank Center for Professional Development (ABC4PD) at 815 N. Water Street in downtown Milwaukee. The private reception and round table immediately followed the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremonies of the MKE Fellows ABC4PD where many business, educational, sports, media, and community leaders will be in attendance for public acknowledgment of “Butch Lee Day” in Milwaukee. In keeping with the spirit of Black History Month and in execution of Civic Engagement – one of the five core pillars upon which the MKE Fellows initiative is based – the event will serve to recognize outstanding achievement throughout the state.
