Michael R. Neufeldt, COMM '00

Michael Neufeldt says, "With a good attitude and a positive outlook, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to." He should know. For all his life, he has refused to let muscular dystrophy hold him back.

Michael attended Marquette as a Burke Scholar, a selective program for students who demonstrate excellence in academics and a commitment to service. At Marquette, he earned a major in broadcast television and a minor in marketing while volunteering as a coordinator for the Marquette University Community Action Program and participating in MUTV.

Today, Michael has just as much on his plate, working in interactive communications at Harley-Davidson Motor Company. He’s also co-author of Tales of the Marquette Hardwood, which he wrote with Tom Pipines of WITI FOX 6. The book recounts the history of Marquette's basketball program, featuring insights and stories gleaned from such greats as Dwyane Wade, Hank Raymonds, Rick Majerus, Tom Crean, Glenn "Doc" Rivers and Jim McIlvaine.

In 1987 and 1988, Michael served as national goodwill ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Today, he continues to serve others as a member of MDA's national task force on public awareness and as co-host of the MDA Telethon produced at WDJT-TV in Milwaukee.
