MONROE - If the impact that Monroe Badger Days has on University of Wisconsin athletics wasn't apparent before, it became crystal clear after Colony Brands President and CEO John Baumann announced the annual event will fund a $1 million scholarship for UW-Madison athletes over the next five years. The scholarship will got to junior volleyball player Lauren Carlini for the next two years. "If you really want to make a meaningful impact, there is really no better way to do that than supporting a student athlete," Baumann said Tuesday at the Badger Days banquet.
