Lee Miskowski

It has been 70 years since Lee Miskowski left the UW campus in Wausau as a student, but he has remained an advocate for the campus ever since!

Miskowski is a proud campus alumnus who went on to earn significant academic and business achievements, most notably his many years as a senior executive for the Ford Motor Company before retiring in the mid-1990s.

Miskowski graduated from Wausau Senior High School in 1949, before going on to attend the local UW two-year campus (now known as UWSP at Wausau) from 1949 to 1951. He went on to UW-Madison, earning a Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) in 1954, and Masters of Business Administration in 1957.

“I am enthusiastic about being a long-term contributor and board member for the UW Wausau Campus Foundation,” he said. “My experience on the Wausau campus decades ago gave me a strong educational background, which in turn led to a very successful and satisfying business career.  I believe a statewide network of 2-year programs is a most effective way to assure quality growth of a strong, highly-rated University of Wisconsin System.”

Miskowski recently included the UW Wausau Campus Foundation in his legacy giving plan, noting: “Following many years of annually contributing to this worthy cause, an estate planning legacy gift is a great way to perpetuate my commitment, while also being very fulfilling.”
