The Winona REACH program celebrated a major gift at Winona Senior High School. REACH, a program of the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce Business Education Network, showed off new CNC equipment recently installed at the high school. Donated by Fastenal in partnership with Stone Machinery and Walter Tools, the $40,000 equipment donation will now provide REACH students with improved hands-on learning experiences.
The Chamber’s Business/Education Network offers programming to develop our community’s future workforce by connecting area business and educational institutions. Projects include the Career Exploration Expo for High School students, CEO in the Classroom presentations for 8th graders, Life After High School for 11th grade, REACH pilot project, HOT Jobs Cool Companies toolkit and a Teacher in the Workplace initiative.
