CVTC graduate ready for next challenge
May 20, 2011
From the New Richmond News: “Long road back: Non-traditional student ready for next challenge” — As a victim of the nation’s economic melt down, Jason Schutte was beginning to feel like he’d never scratch his way back into the work world.
But with his graduation from the diesel mechanic program at Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire on Friday, the New Richmond man has completed a challenging journey from unemployment to a contributing member of society again.
The journey began in the fall of 2008, when Schutte was laid off from his construction job with Halle Builders of New Richmond.
