St. Norbert College has announced that Marti Wronski, vice president and general counsel for the Milwaukee Brewers, will be its commencement speaker on Sunday, May 17, 2015, at 1:30 p.m. in Schuldes Sports Center on the college's De Pere campus. Wronski will also receive the President's Medal from the college.

Wronski, a native of Neenah, Wis., graduated summa cum laude from St. Norbert College in 1994 and from the University of Wisconsin Law School with high honors in 1997.

After graduation, Marti joined Foley & Lardner LLP in Milwaukee as an associate in the litigation department. She spent five years at Foley before joining Marquette University Law School as an assistant professor in 2002. Marti has since served as an adjunct professor at Marquette University, conducting seminars on sports law and the business of professional sports in the law school and the business school.

In 2003, Wronski joined the Milwaukee Brewers organization. She is now in her twelfth season with the Brewers, her ninth as vice president and general counsel. In her role, she oversees all legal and contract work, including negotiating players' and coaches' contracts, addressing grievances, and overseeing compliance and safety at Miller Park.

In June 2006, Marti was selected as a Woman of Influence by the Milwaukee Business Journal. In 2010, she was named to the Business Journal's 40 Under 40 list, and in 2011 she was selected by the Business Journal as one of Milwaukee's Top Corporate Counsels.

Marti has numerous memberships and affiliations with local and national legal, charitable and professional organizations and communities. She sits on the board of directors of the Betty Brinn Children's Museum and Make-A-Wish of Wisconsin, as well as the St. Norbert College Board of Trustees. Marti speaks frequently on the business of Major League Baseball and the workplace opportunities and challenges faced by female executives.

Additionally, in 2011 Marti and her husband, Andy, began working with two other couples to create the first Miracle League, an accessible little-league program for children with disabilities, in the greater Milwaukee area. Miracle League of Milwaukee had its grand opening in 2012. Marti also sits on the league's board of directors.

Most recently, Marti and her family adopted the Milwaukee Brewers' newest official mascot, Hank, the ballpark pup, and have continued their charitable outreach work with and through Hank.
