From wdio.com: “Area Technical College Celebrates Centennial” – A Northland technical college celebrated a big milestone Tuesday, 100 years of education. Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College has been around for a century.
In 1912 when WITC was established Superior became the second city in the state to have a vocational school. Since then the school has grown. It now has four campuses across the state with more than 24,000 students. In Superior this school is a staple the community couldn’t live without.
The superior based school threw a huge bash to celebrate their centennial, complete with face painting, a balloon artist, delicious food and so much more. Former president and class of 1972 alumni, Chuck Levine said WITC gave him a great life.
“I have been blessed with a career at the college because WITC gave me a degree,” said Chuck Levine, President Emeritus at WITC.
At the celebration, Levine helped open a time capsule from 198, discovering some things from the college past. Superior’s Mayor, Bruce Hagen, also declared Tuesday WITC centennial day.
