WTEA RECOGNIZES BADGER TECH ED AS STATE PROGRAM OF THE YEAR

The Badger High School Technology Education Department is being recognized as the Wisconsin Technology Education Association (WTEA) High School Program of the Year. Announced on January 26, 2022 in an email from Matthew Schulz, WTEA Awards Chairperson, the Badger teachers will be honored at the Annual WTEA Banquet in March.

 

“The Wisconsin Technology Education Association annually honors education and industry professionals who have demonstrated outstanding service and commitment to Technology Education,” Schulz said in his email. “I am pleased to announce that you have been selected to receive the WTEA High School Program of the Year Award.” 

 

Members of the Badger Tech Ed Department include: Clint Geissler, Metals Technology and Department Chairperson; Ryan Bouzek, Construction & Woodworking; Arnie Oswald, Construction & Woodworking, Jake Popanda, Computer Science; Tom Sheeley, Automotive; Mike Smith, Printing & Graphics; Glen York, Architecture & Engineering, and Marie Collins, CTE Director.

 

Principal Jenny Straus said, “The WTEA Program of the Year Award is recognition and celebration of the quality of instruction provided by our Tech Ed Team.”

 

Highlights of the Badger Tech Ed program include highly-qualified instructors, widespread transcripted credit with Gateway Technical College and industry recognized certifications embedded into the curriculum in each area. In addition, the recently created Academies of Badger have helped students group high school courses while they are at Badger to earn up to 36 college credits prior to graduation. These commitments to excellence in tech ed add value to the programs already offered to students at Badger.

 

In 2001, Badger was also named WTEA Program of the Year, and was named the International Program of the Year in 2002.
