Friday, November 24th

Last month, Badger Mining Corporation (BMC) completed its 17th year as a company sponsor of the DNR annual deer gun hunt for people with disabilities, and on Thursday, Nov. 2, was honored to be recognized as a Hometown Hero by the Wisconsin State Assembly for its continued support of the hunting program.

Nominated for the award by Representative Joan Ballweg, the Hometown Hero program “seeks to identify and recognize individuals from around the state who give of themselves to make a difference in our communities and in the lives of those around them.”

Tiffany Thoma, BMC environmental team leader, who has been involved with the special hunt since its inception at BMC, accepted the award on BMC’s behalf.

“What an honor it is,” said Thoma in her remarks to the State Assembly.
