I just received a scholarship from the Wisconsin Technical College System and the Department of Public Instruction. I don’t think I would have received this award without the assistance in writing the scholarship applications from the LiNK instructors.

The biggest assets in the LiNK are the instructors! I started out by coming to night sessions to brush up on my math. When I started taking program classes, I received help in algebra, pre-tech chemistry, and anatomy and physiology. The LiNK is a great place to learn and build confidence!
