MARINETTE—During the COVID lockdown, Eileen Beyer was looking for educational opportunities to keep her active while she wasn’t able to see people. She came across UW-Green Bay’s Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), and after looking through the different courses available, decided to become a member and start taking some online classes. Meanwhile, Susan Pike, the institute’s program specialist and only paid employee of the program, had been trying to find a way to bring LLI to the Marinette area. She saw Beyer’s name on a roster for a class she was moderating and noticed Beyer was attending from her home in Menominee.
