Anita Evans/Larry Lebiecki
Anita Evans and Larry Lebiecki want all students to succeed, regardless of economic background. The purpose of this fund is to provide incoming freshmen an “opportunity” to overcome social, cultural, financial or personal and academic challenges in order to participate fully in college life.
Anita Evans and Larry Lebiecki have a long history at UW-L: Anita Evans started her career at UW-L in 1987 as electronic services librarian in Murphy Library. She held many critical roles in the library, eventually serving as library director from 1996 until her retirement in 2012. Larry Lebiecki, a 1962 UW-L alumnus, returned to campus in 1968 and began a career that ended in 2002 when he retired as assistant chancellor of Administrative Services.
Both have been longtime and generous contributors to many scholarship funds at UW-L, including an incoming freshman award established by Larry Lebiecki.
