Family, friends, co-workers and people graced by knowing Marti Hemwall gathered July 26 at the Stone Arch at Riverview Gardens in Appleton to honor her double career as an educator and grant-maker and to mark her retirement from the Community Foundation this Tuesday. Marti joined the Foundation 10 years ago after serving as a professor of anthropology and dean of students at Lawrence University. She joked that President and CEO Curt Detjen “took a flier on me” when he hired her to administer grants. She retires as Vice President Community Engagement, having overseen dramatic growth and change in the Foundation-directed grant programs. She said she has been moved by the passion and dedication she has been in the Fox Valley Region’s nonprofit community.
