State Journal's 'Know Your Madisonian' feature puts spotlight on alum Hunt

November 28, 2016
School of Education alumna Laura Hunt was recently featured in the Wisconsin State Journal's weekly "Know Your Madisonian" column. 

Hunt received her undergraduate degree in elementary education from the School of Education in 1988.

The article focuses on Hunt's work as program coordinator at the Madison Senior Center. Although she never expected to work with seniors after graduating with a degree in elementary education, Hunt calls her work a good fit. 

Hunt's work requires her to be aware of trends so she can cater services and programs to fit seniors' needs and provide a social outlet. Some of these events include a Medicare information fair and senior speed dating.
