Voices From the Valley

A podcast of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region

Gresham’s Hope

In this episode we revisit the fascinating story of how one small town in our area, Gresham Wisconsin, is making dreams come true for its youth. In a town of fewer than 600 people, that means a lot. For the past 21 years, young people graduating from Gresham High School have been given an opportunity to pursue their dreams. And it’s all because people in Gresham and its surrounding neighbors have decided that its young people are worth investing in.  Listen to how an incredible community initiative has come about, giving Gresham residents a chance to build a treasure for their next generations.

  • at 2:24 Meet Mindy Hoffman, Gresham grad and Physical Therapist.
  • at 9:19 Alex Aschenbrener, Gresham Student.
  • at 13:16 Debbie Schroeder Fisher comes full circle.
