In Green Bay, Governor Walker joined local partners to formally unveil the Bay Link Manufacturing lab at Green Bay West High School. The lab is part of a dual-enrollment program designed to give students experiences and skills that local employers are seeking, all while gaining both high school and college credit. Students in the program work with private manufacturing partners to design high-tech systems and complete projects in industrial welding, machine fabrication, and metals.
“The manufacturing industry is growing and thriving in Wisconsin, and there is no better time than during Manufacturing Month to highlight the Bay Link Manufacturing learning lab and recognize the partnerships between the Green Bay Area Public School District, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, and the NEW Manufacturing Alliance,” said Governor Walker. “Programs and facilities like Bay Link Manufacturing prepare students for entering the workforce by providing real-world training making them attractive to employers throughout Wisconsin and teaches them skills that they can take with them throughout their career.”
The governor joined 95 soldiers from WI National Guard's 950th Engineer Co. for their deployment in Superior.
Governor Walker and Tonette did the Lung Walk at the Milwaukee County Zoo in memory of her dad Tony & in honor of her Aunt Esther.
In Wisconsin Rapids, the governor appeared at the Final Roll Call ceremony at the WI Firefighters Memorial.
And he wished Tonnette a Happy Sweetest Day.
Finally, to repeat, Scott Walker AND WISCONSIN had a terrific week.
