Mark and Julie Smiley met while attending UW-Stevens Point in the early 1980s. Mark is a 1985 business administration alumnus and Julie is a 1987 communication alumna. Since their time at UWSP, the Smileys settled in Baraboo and founded a manufacturing company headquartered in Port Washington called Badger Paperboard Inc., which continues to grow and expand to new locations throughout the U.S. Mark and Julie also raised a daughter and a son, both of whom now take active leadership roles in the family business.
Mark traveled back to Stevens Point to participate in a School of Business and Economics alumni panel discussion in 2014 as part of what is now known as the Smiley Professional Events. Since then, Mark and Julie have established two UWSP scholarships in business and communication as well as a program fund to support a variety of student opportunities relating to soft-skill development and professionalism.
