BW People Take the Polar Plunge

At least two people in BW's philanthropic-minded community have turned their fundraising for a good cause into an extreme experience. Despite our frigid winter, Career Services Graduate Intern, Marissa Bozak, and Chemistry Professor, Stephen Tytko, took the "plunge" into Lake Erie at Geneva State Park's Breakwater Beach on February 22 to raise money for the the Special Olympics.
