“Kurt learned that manufacturing companies now pay for schooling while giving him experience in his field. When Kurt was 23 years old, he purchased his first home and at the age 24, he bought a new truck. He is now 25 years old, will receive his journeyman’s card this year… he is grateful for the career choice that was made available to him without any student loan debt.”
- Mary, mother of Kurt, electrician apprentice at Anchor Manufacturing Group, Inc.
“I knew a traditional 4-year college was not the right fit for Jeremy so when he was offered an opportunity to co-op at a manufacturing facility…he jumped at the chance.

- Renee, Mother of Jeremy, maintenance mechanic apprentice at Waukesha Metal Products
