St. Norbert College has selected Chrystal Woller, Mike Counter and Faith Mertzig as recipients of its 2022 Founder’s Day Awards. The awards are given in recognition of dedication to the Norbertine traditions of a community committed to service, peace-building and reconciliation, prayer, and radical hospitality were presented at the St. Norbert College Founder’s Day prayer breakfast on Oct. 11.

Chrystal Woller is the director of health and wellness. She has served the college since 2016 with 16 years of governmental public health experience, including serving as health director for the city of De Pere. According to her nominator, she “exemplifies communio” and is “respectful of everyone - faculty, staff, students and family members - regardless of their opinions and how they approach her.”

Mike Counter is the director of media relations and has taught courses in the Master of Business Administration program through the Donald J. Schneider School of Business and Economics. He joined St. Norbert College in 2003 with 21 years spent in both television and radio broadcasting. One of his former interns wrote: “Mike is the reason I love marketing and communications. …Mike treated me as an equal who he could teach and who he could also learn from.”

Faith Mertzig (Campbellsport, Wis.) is an education major representing the class of 2024. Faith runs for both cross country in the fall and track & field in the spring. Faith was elected as team captain this year for cross country, a true testament to her connection with the team and her continuous support even while she was injured. One of her nominators shared, “Faith’s love for her teammates is unmatched. She wants to see them succeed as runners and in all the other areas of their lives.”
