CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF PROVEN EDUCATION 2010-2011 Annual Report of Chippewa Valley Technical College and Chippewa Valley Technical College Foundation

2012 Calendar 2009-2010 Annual Report of Chippewa Valley Technical College and Chippewa Valley Technical College Foundation


letter from cvtc president It has been an exciting year, and I am pleased to share with you the 2010-2011 Annual Report of Chippewa Valley Technical College and Chippewa Valley Technical College Foundation. This past year we have updated our facilities with the opening of Shear Inspiration, The Learning Center, and our new Student Commons. We have expanded our programming with the addition to the Manufacturing Education Center. The changes allow us to continue to provide state-of-the-art education in state-of-the-art facilities. For 99 years CVTC has been a dynamic community partner, dedicated to adding value through learning and student success. Our staff and members of our three boards of directors have helped improve the lives of students, met the needs of the regional workforce, and strengthened the larger community. This year’s annual report celebrates our past and also looks to the future. Throughout this report and throughout 2012, you will see celebrations of the past and present. You will also have many opportunities to become engaged and visit our campuses. Reflecting upon our mission in 1912, much has stayed the same. CVTC was created to respond to the changing workforce and emerging needs. As we look to 2012, our 100-year anniversary, our mission is steadfast. As we look to the future, our vision is to continue to provide value through education. We will continue to provide cutting-edge education as we prepare the next generation of learners. A new and important endeavor is the creation of an Energy Education Center. The Energy Education Center will equip our workforce with the skills needed to address the demand of the evolving energy industry. The Center will focus on energy technology in three areas including energy generation, energy distribution, and efficient energy utilization. I invite you to become involved with this exciting project. An unwavering belief in a strong and applicable education and the possibilities it creates inspired the State of Wisconsin 100 years ago to create the technical education system. Without question, education for me is an investment. It empowers one to get a job and become a contributing member of society. You are investors in our College and Foundation, and we thank you for supporting our past and shaping our future.

letter from executive director, cvtc foundation, inc. and alumni association We are honored to partner with CVTC as the College prepares to celebrate 100 years of technical education. Without question, CVTC continues to be a powerful force in building our economy and workforce — a critically important effort in an ever-changing economy. We are pleased to share that this past year has been an exciting one for our Foundation. In addition to awarding $108,033 in over 257 student scholarships, we were honored to recognize excellence in teaching through the Domer and Fuerstenberg teaching awards. We also recognized innovative programs and ideas through the Culture of Excellence awards. CVTC students who had an immediate and critical need were assisted through the Student Emergency Grant Fund. In-kind gifts of equipment have given students unique opportunities, and donors have contributed to enhance our facilities and classrooms. The generosity of our benefactors affects every area of CVTC. In the future, we plan to continue to respond to the needs of our community. The Energy Education Center is a part of our future, and it will transform our current and future energy-related technician programs that will have a lasting impact upon our region. You have many choices for your philanthropy. As mindful stewards of your investments, the CVTC Foundation Board of Directors, through our Foundation, supports and empowers students, faculty, and staff. If you are currently supporting the Foundation, we thank you. If not, we encourage you to support an area that is meaningful to you. Your financial support impacts our College and community, now and into the future. Thank you for your past investments and future consideration.

While 2012 will represent the College’s centennial, CVTC Foundation, Inc., began to serve the College in 1975. Thanks to so many generous benefactors over the past 37 years, we have provided over $10 million in direct and in-kind support to CVTC.

scholarships & financial aid impact

available forever “We hope that through our contribution, the Student Emergency Fund can be endowed so that the fund is available forever. We want CVTC students to know that they are not alone and people in the community, along with the staff and faculty, are here to help.” — Alan and Melissa Ostertag, Ostertag Orthodontics, Student Emergency Fund donors Cody Luedtke and Eric Mickelson received the ASHRAE/La Crosse Chapter Scholarship, presented by Melissa Ostertag. Melissa Ostertag is a contributor to the Student Emergency Endowment Fund and serves on the CVTC Foundation Board of Directors.

The Shawn Sillman Memorial Auto Collision Repair and Refinish Technician Scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2011 to Casey Falkner, presented by Doug Olson.

The William Hehli Memorial Scholarship was established in 1982 for Mondovi High School students.

Applications for financial aid have increased 41 percent at CVTC in the last five years, which is why it’s so important to have scholarships available for our students.

remember when

changing technologies “I didn’t know anything about a comptometer, but I Iearned to use it and taught it to students. I taught keypunch machines when they first came out. We changed with the times.” — Ruth Rice Koenings, taught at Vocational School on First Avenue in the 1960s

“My training got me probably the best job in the city, and that was great.” — Jane Voll, attended classes at the Vocational School on First Avenue from 1958 to 1959. Jane’s first job was at U.S. Rubber Company. She then later worked in the Business and Marketing Department at CVTC until she retired.

student life

voice of the students “We are the voice of the students. The Student Government Association represents students on College committees and provides social, educational, and cultural leadership activities and events.” Tiger’s Den student lounge, 1970s

— Eddie Sanchez, Student Government Association president

The Girls Glee Club in 1941 was composed of both the Commercial and Home Economics students.

Eddie Sanchez with Bruce Barker, CVTC President

“You can’t underestimate how important student life was to the socialization of our students back in the 1970s. There really weren’t very many ways to meet people outside of class, and that’s where student life really came into the fold.” — Jim Severson, Student Life Coordinator, 1969-1992 Boys ping pong was a popular sport around the noon hour in 1941. To enter a tournament, each boy paid a dime, which bought a pair of rubber paddles for the winner.

In the 1970s and 1980s weekly designated club meeting times fed student life. A weeklong Winter Carnival and recreational sports teams were very popular.

Brian Gerrits, Automotive Technician instructor

hands-on training “The class was hands-on – just like the current auto classes – diagnosing and fixing actual cars. The big difference is in technology. My dad, the instructor, could often just listen to a car engine and tell what was wrong. There was not the complexity of the vehicle and the computers and tools to fix them like today.” — David Rowe’s father, Allard, taught auto mechanics at the Vocational School on First Avenue in the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s.

CVTC has proudly partnered with Auto Value Parts Store since 2004 to accommodate the automotive program needs of the students.

Andrea Herman of Eau Claire graduated from the Auto Collision Program in December 2011.

from barber to salon

give something back “When I went to school in 1960, we didn’t learn how to perm or color hair. I also didn’t learn how to cut ladies’ hair. I had to learn those later. CVTC’s Barbering program was very good to me, and when the new salon opened, I wanted to give something back to the program.” — Marlin Mueller, 1961 Barbering graduate and Shear Inspiration donor. Marlin owns Main Street Hair Care in Eau Claire.

1944 Barbering class taught by Jack Russell

Barber-Cosmetologist student Taylor Hayes of Menomonie graduated in October 2011.

The Barbering program began in the 1940s at the former Vocational School at 1300 First Avenue. It is now called the Barber-Cosmetologist program. CVTC’s current salon, Shear Inspiration - CVTC Salon & Spa, opened in 2010 and is located at the Business Education Center in Eau Claire.

welding program changes

in-depth understanding “CVTC welding students will have a more in-depth understanding of what they are doing to the material and what product they are building. The person will start at a higher wage and achieve a higher wage later.” — Mark Tyler, President of OEM Fabrications and WTCS Board

Jon Will, Welding and Welding Fabrication instructor working on equipment in the new welding lab.

CVTC Welding students now have options. They can take the first year of the welding program and graduate with a one-year diploma or learn more specialized skills and complete their two-year diploma.

college financials

Letter from CVTC Board Chair As immediate past chair of Chippewa Valley Technical College District Board of Directors, I write to you with great pleasure. Since its inception in 1912, CVTC has played an important part in developing our workforce by providing strong educational opportunities. I would like to congratulate CVTC on providing a long history of proven, responsive education, all while working with local business and industry to ensure we are relevant to our ever-evolving community needs. I am confident the next century will be equally successful for our College.    It is an honor to work with members of the CVTC Foundation and CVTC Alumni Association who prove to be outstanding advocates for the College. We appreciate the partnerships and look forward to all we can accomplish together through our missions.  I welcome Gary Mitchell as the new chair and look forward to working with him now and into the future. I plan to be involved and hope you join me in the many celebrations that will take place during 2012 and beyond.

Letter from CVTC Foundation Board President This past year I had the opportunity to serve as president of CVTC Foundation. The leadership role allowed me the opportunity to learn firsthand the impact of our Foundation. Much has occurred during the past 12 months. We completed a strategic planning process, identified areas of need and opportunities, communicated with more alumni and friends, updated our website, and have implemented a strong committee structure for our board of directors. CVTC Foundation is playing an integral role in building for the future. We have a culture of philanthropy and will be unveiling our first-ever philanthropic giving wall, which recognizes our donors who have given $2,500 to areas of importance to them.  Without question, our Foundation directly impacts our College; yet more importantly, the regional impact is significant. We are proud to be leaders and the philanthropic arm of the College. All financial support is appreciated and wisely used as we work to effectively and efficiently meet our mission each day.  CVTC and CVTC Foundation have been a part of your past; we hope you keep us a part of your future as well. Thank you for all you do. — Jason Vance, 2010-2011 CVTC Foundation Board President
