WITC Wins Career Preparedness Award for Wisconsin
(5/5/2015): Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College is one of four Wisconsin nominees recognized for demonstrating success in preparing for education, careers and beyond. This recognition is part of ACT's third annual national College and Career Readiness Campaign.
Wisconsin is among 39 states participating in the third year of ACT's College and Career Readiness Campaign. Together, ACT and Wisconsin identified award nominees in four categories: an employer to recognize "Workplace Success," a community college to recognize "Career Preparedness," a high school to recognize "College and Career Transition" and a student to recognize "Student Readiness."
After receiving the statewide Career Preparedness award, WITC will represent Wisconsin in the Career Preparedness category nationally. A selection committee of national education and workforce development leaders will select one award winner in each of the four categories to be honored at ACT's National Gala on College and Career Readiness, hosted by ACT in Washington, D.C. in June.
"Wisconsin's nominees are great examples of the collaborative efforts to transition students from high school and equip them for success in further education and the workforce," said State Superintendent Tony Evers. "These initiatives demonstrate a focus on the importance of college and career readiness to ensure the future is bright for Wisconsin communities and industries."
