Hall of Fame

Since 2008, Wisconsin Community Media has been recognizing the dedication of community television professionals who provide access television services to their communities.  Those the Wisconsin Community Media Board of Directors nominate for this honor have devoted countless hours to the mission of access far above what is required in their work.  They have been valued leaders on the state level and we will always remember their contribution.

2019 Hall Of Fame Inductee: Dawn Wills
RFC-TV River Falls

In 2001, barely one year after you started with the city, you were elected to the WAPC (now WCM) Board of Directors.  Your can-do attitude, flare for administration, and generous attitude toward all, marked you instantly as a leader.  During your tenure, you served as secretary and then president for three years from 2002 – 2005.  At that time, the president took on the lion’s share of the administrative tasks, which, as the organization grew, became increasingly time-intensive.  During your tenure, WAPC undertook a strategic planning process that resulted in the formation of an executive search committee and the hiring of WAPC’s first part-time executive director in 2006.
