Gov. Evers Appoints Mathy To Board For People With Developmental Disabilities

Nicolet Area Technical College

Nicolet College employee and disability advocate Ashley Mathy has been appointed by Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers to a four-year term on the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities.

She joins the 21-member board as a northern Wisconsin representative, advocating for meaningful and appropriate employment for individuals with disabilities.

Mathy is a graduate of Nicolet’s Jump! Start program and has worked part time at the college for the past three years. She currently serves as an assistant for Sandy Bishop, the executive director for Economic and Community Development at Nicolet. Mathy also works closely in her advocacy efforts with Katherine Garrison, a community integration services manager for Headwaters, Inc., in Rhinelander.

The Board’s mission is to help people with developmental disabilities become independent, productive, and included in all facets of community life. At least 60 percent of the membership is comprised of people with disabilities with the remaining members from various agencies and organizations supporting the advancement of people with developmental disabilities.
