Governor Walker’s visit

On July 17th Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus had a visit from Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Governor Walker came to Moraine Park to award the College with a Wisconsin Workforce Partnership Grant from the Wisconsin Covenant Foundation, Inc.
Moraine Park will use the $705,647 grant to provide specific training for Amerequip Corporation, Brenner Tank, John Crane Orion, and Mid-States Aluminum Corporation. The grant will establish Manufacturing Skills Academies for machine operation and welding training in a 15-week boot camp format. These partner businesses will be able to hire skilled workers from the skills academies. 

Through this grant, we are able to help move the State forward in closing the gap between Wisconsin’s middle-skill jobs and available workers. The College is very grateful and excited to be working with our business partners to help strengthen the pipeline between Moraine Park and employers.
