Dan Clancy, president of the WTCS, explains, "The Futuremakers Partner award celebrates the impact of college and employer collaboration in helping hundreds of thousands of students set a direction for their future. Through these partnerships, we are building a highly skilled workforce and strong communities.”
Charter Films, a supplier of plastic films for a wide variety of industries, has partnered with WTCS to create and grow its own training program, Charter University. This computer-based education program allows employees to gain new skills and boost income potential. WTCS and Charter Films also worked together to secure Workforce Advancement Training grants for the program.
“This award recognizes our partnership with WTCS and exemplifies our commitment to training and education of our employees,” says Charter CEO Chris Trapp. “It also recognizes the importance of cooperation between business and educational institutions. We have worked together for many years to help align our job skill needs with the education curriculum at the technical college.”
“This company has a significant impact on the local economy and is an asset to the community and the state of Wisconsin,” Clancy said. “The Board is very pleased to recognize Charter Films as a WTCS Futuremaker partner and a key economic development driver in northwest Wisconsin.”
