Margy was recognized for the numerous roles she has played at USM, including class agent, USM Fund co-chair, Parents’ Association volunteer, and Athletic Hall of Fame Committee member. In the greater Milwaukee community, she has worked tirelessly to champion many causes ranging from the Wisconsin Humane Society to the United Way. She is also the founder of Milwaukee Reads. This fall, Margy will begin her term as President of the USM Parents’ Association.

Before Feed.Us, Rick started three previous internet companies and spent much of his early career working in art and design.
In addition to their contributions through volunteer and leadership positions, Margy and her husband, Greg Norman, and Rick and his wife, Keri Sarajian, are members of USM’s Leadership Society, honored for their roles as generous benefactors of the School.
