LA CROSSE, Wis., February 11, 2019 – Western Technical College is sending students from the Business Management program to the State Capitol on Tuesday, Feb. 19 as part of a system-wide showcase of service learning.
Western students Trenton Anderson, Jade Blackburn, Tyler Kenworthy, and Kerrigan Lyga will present on Suits for Success, an event held by instructor Shannon Corcoran’s Professional Profile Development course. Each year, students collaborate with local businesses and non-profit organizations to provide community members and students with professional clothing and job search skills.
“As we celebrate Career and Technical Education month, it’s important to recognize Western’s service learning opportunities,” said Western President Roger Stanford. “Not only are students learning the technical skills in their field, they are learning about what it means to be a leader in the community.”
The students will be presenting their projects to state legislators and other visitors from 11:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Wisconsin Technical College System President Morna Foy will offer opening remarks at 11:00 a.m.
The WTCS Student Showcase is an annual event designed to increase awareness of the many ways Wisconsin’s technical college students give back to their communities as part of the educational experience.
