Green Bay, WI (April 10, 2017) – Training for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon distance events is reaching its peak, but there is still plenty of time to start training for the Cellcom Green Bay 5K. The 3.1-mile event will take place on Saturday, May 20 at 9:00 a.m. and is open to runners and walkers.

“This event is great for experienced short-distance runners, first-time racers, families, or walkers,” said Toni Jaeckels, race director of the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. “The distance is achievable for people of all experience levels and is a great way to get active with the family.”

Prevea Sports Medicine has a free six-week training plan for new runners who are looking to train for the 5K.

“You do not need to have any running experience to utilize this training plan. It provides a daily walk and run distance that helps you gradually build to running a 5K over the course of six weeks,” said Mike LaMere, Prevea Training Run Director.

The Cellcom Green Bay 5K uses the same start and finish line as the distance races and travels through the neighborhoods surrounding Lambeau Field, including a lap through the stadium in the final mile before the finish. The race will finish in the stadium parking lot and feature a tailgate-style finish line party sponsored by Festival Foods.

The event will be chip-timed and awards will be presented to the top three men and women in each age group. Strollers are permitted in this event.

Sturgeon Bay, WI (March 15, 2017) - With the help of Cellcom’s Virtual Reality (VR) Kits for Classrooms program, students at Sawyer School in Sturgeon Bay will be using VR to travel around the world and beyond.   Virtual reality gives teachers the power to take their classroom anywhere in the world, fully immersing students in a lesson and allowing them to experience new places and explore new ideas. Erik Tauschek, teacher at Sawyer School, took his students to different parts of the world and let them explore while sharing information about the new places and having them answer questions. They will also be visiting the solar system to prepare for an upcoming science unit.

Erik Tauschek, teacher at Sawyer School, said, “The Cellcom VR Kit program was really exciting for the students and myself to use. I felt like this was giving the students an experience that they never have had before. We went to some places that they may never get the opportunity to go to. The students were constantly engaged and didn’t want to stop exploring different places of the world because they were fascinated by it.”

Cellcom sees VR as an opportunity to use its technology to enhance learning and give students a greater understanding. “Smartphones have evolved into powerful tools that put a wealth of information and resources at your fingertips. These devices are now bridging another gap, making virtual reality experiences accessible as an educational tool. We are excited to put this technology in the hands of local educators so they cannot only engage students in their curriculums, but inspire them with the infinite possibilities of technology,” said Brighid Riordan, director of public affairs and customer experience initiatives.

Cellcom launched its VR kit program in October 2016. Teachers throughout Cellcom’s service area are able to reserve a bank of 15 smartphones and receive free accompanying virtual reality viewers. The schools have a week to use the VR kits to experience new places and explore new ideas. To learn more, visit cellcom.com/classroom.

(December 15, 2016) - Mark Naze, Nsight CFO & treasurer, has been named the recipient of the 2016 NWTC Distinguished Alumni Award. The award recognizes a former Northeast Wisconsin Technical College student who has followed a path of excellence after graduating. The NWTC Alumni Association selected Mark for his individual accomplishments and strong community involvement.

“Mark is an outstanding example of what NWTC has to offer,” said Karen Smits, NWTC vice president of advancement. “His achievements and dedication to the community prove that a technical college education is a foundation for success.”

Mark graduated from the accounting program at NWTC in 1982. He went on to get his bachelor’s degree from St. Norbert College and joined Nsight in 1984 as an accountant for what was then Northeast Telephone Company. Mark has played an integral role in the company’s immense growth over the last 30 years, and led numerous acquisitions and launches.

Mark credits his education at NWTC for giving him the foundation for his successful career. When he wasn’t sure what type of schooling to pursue after high school, the technical college provided him an economical opportunity to explore his options and find a field that he enjoyed. NWTC currently sees more than 2,000 graduates each year, putting Mark in a very elite group of alumni.

“There have been so many graduates from NWTC over the years, and so many people doing so many great things with their degrees, I am truly honored and humbled to be chosen for this award,” Mark said.
