Georgeanne Artz, assistant professor, was diagnosed with melanoma cancer in August 2017. As co-adviser of the Agricultural Business Club, Georgeanne’s character of helping others is vital to the success of the club and its members.
Wanting to help Georgeanne and other families affected by cancer, club members made a donation of $3,100 to the Bliss Cancer Center in her name.
Nearly 160 club members each donated $5 or more to “Jeans for Georgeanne” for the option to wear jeans at the monthly meeting. Those funds were matched by the club and augmented with donations from program alumni.
