Binieckis presented with award, recognitions
Susan Yelich Biniecki, assistant professor of educational leadership, and Waldek Biniecki, instructor at the Center for Intercultural and Multilingual Advocacy, were presented with one award and three special recognitions at the Polish Independence Day/Veterans Day event in November in Milwaukee.
- Congressman Clement Zablocki Civic Achievement Award from the Polish American Congress
- Certificate of Recognition for Dedicated Service from the consulate general of the Republic of Poland in Chicago
- Milwaukee County Resolution Recognizing Civic Achievement from the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors
- City of Milwaukee Resolution Recognizing Civic Achievement from the city of Milwaukee Common Council.
The Binieckis are committed to raising awareness about Central Europe and its role in history, as well as its dynamic economy and acclaimed educational system. Through their international network of connections, the couple secured two exhibits, “The World Knew: Jan Karski’s Mission for Humanity” and “Righteous Among the Nations,” that were on display at Hale Library this year.
