Congratulations to the latest Phil Hauck Scholarship recipient at St. Norbert College

Lisa Strandberg of Neenah, Wis. was selected as the most recent recipient of the Phil Hauck Scholarship at St. Norbert College. The scholarship covers half the cost of books, fees and tuition for an individual pursuing an MBA through the Schneider School, or half the cost of books, fees and materials for participation in the core program of the Center for Exceptional Leadership (CEL).        


Strandberg is pursuing her MBA at St. Norbert. She is the community engagement director at Pillars in Appleton, Wis., a nonprofit that provides shelter, support, and solutions to address the housing needs that destabilize children and families. 


A longtime champion of the local community, Phil Hauck continues to be a strong supporter of nonprofit agencies in the region. The Phil Hauck Scholarship for Nonprofit Leaders was established at St. Norbert College in recognition of Hauck’s efforts.


Hauck has served for decades as a mentor to business leaders and an advisor to organizations throughout the region. As a longtime TEC/Vistage chair, he has guided dozens of CEOs in northeast Wisconsin in their pursuit of personal and organizational improvement and growth.


He also co-founded the St. Norbert College CEO Breakfast & Strategy Series, the linchpin of the college’s outreach to the business community.
