Bank of Wisconsin Dells (BWD) announced its Youth Apprentice (YA) Scholarship Program recipients. Wisconsin Dells High School graduates Allison Anderson, Aspen Eide, and Shayla Stefan, and recent Madison College graduate Brooke Albers were each awarded one scholarship from the bank’s executive vice president, Scott Rockwell. These students are the first group to receive the bank’s YA scholarship.
“We are pleased to be able to work with such talented students, and wanted to highlight the great partnership between BWD and the local school districts’ youth apprentice program,” says bank President/CEO Jon Bernander. “Congratulations to our young scholars!”
BWD’s YA students are selected through Wisconsin's YA program, a statewide school-to-work initiative. Cooperative Educational Service Agency #5 (CESA 5) coordinates the YA program for 35 Wisconsin schools districts. It is designed for high school students who want hands-on learning in an occupational area at a worksite along with classroom instruction. Upon completion of a program, students receive a certificate of occupational proficiency from the State of Wisconsin.
