MICHAEL SCHULTZ, BS, MS
Michael earned his master of science degree from Eastern Kentucky University and is an authorized general industry trainer for OSHA 10 and 30. He has 18 years of industry experience and continually advances his own education. He also visits and connects with employers in manufacturing to maintain relationships and make connections between the experiences of his students and the needs of employers.
“Teaching in a technical college is a two-way street. I share my experiences with my students, and each student brings insight and experience as well. This cooperative dynamic enriches the learning for all of us.”
MATT MCCALL, AD
Matt earned his electromechanical associate degree from Chippewa Valley Technical College and attended UW–Wood County as an engineering major. He holds BAS instruction certification for millwright, industrial electrical, and multi-craft apprenticeships. He brings over 12 years of experience in highly automated food manufacturing to his teaching at Mid-State.
