Ertl Excels in U of M’s 2023 Community Fund Drive CLA Cookie Throwdown

Melissa Ertl

The University of Minnesota’s Community Fund Drive concluded on October 31, 2023, with 10% of the employees contributing just under $800,000. In early November, the 2023 CFD results will be published.

We are thrilled to congratulate Melissa Ertl who not only participated but won the CLA 2023 Cookie Throwdown! The throwdown was hosted by the Dean’s Office to raise funds for the Community 
Fund Drive. At the CLA event, Ertl’s “Apple Cider Donut Blondies” secured a first-place tie in the Cookies and Bars category.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who played a part in fostering a healthier community through this annual University-wide initiative! Your contributions have made a significant impact.

Melissa Ertl, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota.
