Expanded program draws future industrial mechanics
Wednesday, August 01, 2018
Earlier this year, Channer Schutts was back home in Menomonie and looking for a new direction to take. It was at a party where he ran into his fellow 2017 Menomonie High School graduate Evan Bauer that he found the answer.
Channer, a big young man with a solid build, was a football star on the offensive and defensive lines back in the day, but a semester at St. Cloud State didn’t work out and he needed a reset. “I wanted some kind of schooling, but wasn’t sure what. I was at a party and Evan was there and he referred me to the Industrial Mechanic program at CVTC. He had already been accepted and told me about the different things he would be working with.”
Channer signed up at Chippewa Valley Technical College too, and they joined fellow Class of ’17 grad Adam Hackbarth.
