Wisconsin Bank and Trust’s Cottage Grove Banking Center Manager Chimeng Yang was recently nominated to the Special Olympics Board for a three-year term as a Director. He will be responsible for meeting the needs of the athletes, setting policies, developing long-range goals, managing finances and supporting the president and staff of Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI).
“I’m honored to be joining the Special Olympics Wisconsin Board of Directors because this is something that hits home for me,” Yang said. “I’m looking forward to getting involved by helping and giving back to those that participate.”
SOWI works to provide year-round Olympic-type sports training and competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The organization hopes to develop and demonstrate the talents these individuals have in order to increase the public’s understanding of their capabilities and therefore create a more welcoming world.
Yang was referred to SOWI by a fellow Cottage Grove Chamber member because of his connections in Madison and Milwaukee. In addition to being a part of the Cottage Grove Chamber of Commerce, Yang is also on the Board of Directors for the Hmong Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce.
