Spude to be honored for Veteran work

A local veteran will be honored Saturday at the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay men's basketball game at the Resch Center.  Jared Spude, who served in the U.S. Army, will be given the Lou LeCalsey Phoenix Hero award that is given to individuals who have made a significant impact in the life for veterans on campus or in the community.  Spude, a Southern Door and UW-Green Bay alum, says he is humbled by the honor.  He credits Nancy Hutchinson from the Door County Adopt-A-Soldier program with major involvement with veterans in this area.



 Spude was active in the military for three years after high school before attending UW-Green Bay and graduating with honors in 2015.  He lives in Brussels with his wife Amanda and their two children.
