WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. — In case you missed it, Governor Tony Evers toured Mid-State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids yesterday and spoke with faculty, staff, and students on the work they are doing to fill jobs and train the next generation of workers.
Last December, Gov. Evers delivered $9 million to Mid-State through a Workforce Innovation Grant to help fill jobs and build regional collaboration in central Wisconsin, targeting 2,500 unemployed, underemployed, or underserved communities and youth with skills training and support services.
Mid-State is committed to helping central Wisconsin businesses recruit, develop, and retain a highly skilled workforce, and on yesterday’s tour, Gov. Evers visited their Workforce and Economic Development Center, cosmetology program, ambulance simulator, and culinary kitchen.
Gov. Evers will continue to invest in job training and apprenticeship programs that connect people with hands-on skills training for high-demand fields, and you can view the governor’s plan to support public education in his Doing the Right Thing Agenda here.
