JoAnn Martin Supplies and Textbook Fund JoAnn Martin was a Communications instructor at WITC-Rice Lake for a number of years.

She recognized that with just a little financial help, a student was more likely to be successful, rather than struggling with how to pay these costs. This fund was established to help students who show academic promise and are in financial need. The fund supplies students with gift cards for the bookstore to help defray costs of books and supplies required for their program.
