Tammy Baldwin Leads Round Table Discussion At MPTC

(West Bend) Moraine Park Technical College recently played host to US Senator Tammy Baldwin. The visit featured a round table meeting allowing representatives from the school as well as educational partners from throughout the area to outline collaborative efforts to grow interest in and provide opportunities for skilled trades. In the discussion emphasis was put on apprenticeship programs, STEM curriculum, and youth education. In her remarks, Baldwin referred to the currently proposed infrastructure bill, calling it a once in a generation opportunity. She says it would add numerous jobs, in turn requiring a larger skilled workforce. Moraine Park Technical College has campuses in Beaver Dam, Fond du Lac, and West Bend offering a variety of career training certifications and associate degree opportunities. A link to the full video of the round table discussion will accompany this story online at DailyDodge.com.
