2016-17 Alumna Of The Year - Dr. Pamela Anderson
A Pewaukee School District committee has chosen a Pewaukee High School Alumni Person of the Year for the 2016-2017 school year. The committee of nine individuals from the District, PHS, and the community reviewed three excellent candidates before finalizing their decision. Dr. Pamela Anderson, class of 1973, was chosen for her accomplishments in eradicating world hunger. Prior to retiring in 2016, she most recently served as the Director for Agricultural Development for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
President Obama appointed Anderson to a seven person advisory board for USAID where she currently serves as a board member to advise on issues related to food security in the United States. Having worked most of her life on hunger issues internationally, Anderson says she is now focusing her work on hunger in the United States, citing a statistic that one out of five children in the US are malnourished. Her future plans involve working toward alleviating this national crisis.
Anderson has many fond memories of Pewaukee High School including encouragement she received as a junior from the recently retired Board of Education president, Jim Huismann. Her teachers were also very influential to her over the years and the lessons she learned in public speaking are unforgettable. Anderson shares that she speaks all over the world and the words of her former English teacher, Sandi Hrovatin, still influence her when she prepares a speech.
