Governor Walker Declares 12.12.12. to be Aaron Rodgers Day
Madison—For 12.12.12, Governor Scott Walker declared today to be Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin in response to a constituent request. The day honors his contributions to the state of Wisconsin on and off the football field. 12.12.12 was selected in honor of the Green Bay quarterback’s jersey number.
“Aaron Rodgers has earned his place as one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play for the Green Bay Packers, but his contribution to the state of Wisconsin is not limited to the football field,” Governor Walker said. “He is a role model off the field with his work in Wisconsin’s communities.”
Aaron Rodgers is an active member of the community and works closely with the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) Fund, the Salvation Army, and various other community organizations.
Raised in California, Aaron Rodgers was a two-year starter for the University of California. He was drafted in first round of the 2005 National Football League draft by the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers was named most valuable player of the 2011 Super Bowl and was named the 2011 NFL league MVP.
