Recently The Post-Crescent’s “Best of the Valley” winners were announced in a variety of categories. These results are based on the votes cast by members of the community. It was very nice to see that for the fourth consecutive year, Fox Valley Technical College took the top honor in the continuing education category.
You may or may not know that last year FVTC served over 47,000 people, most of whom participated in what is called “continuing education.” For us, continuing education involves a wide range of programming and individuals who participate for a wide range of reasons. Over 20,000 people alone participated in training sponsored by their employers and customized by the College to address their needs. Many individuals attend seminars and workshops conducted by the College. Then there are simply a wide array of credit and non-credit classes offered by Fox Valley Technical College in the communities of the region–classes for personal enrichment, classes to renew certifications, classes to learn a new and specific skill, classes to learn a new language. I could go on and on.
You know, continuing education is so important today. The world continues to change so rapidly that there is always something new to learn. I am so pleased that our College offers many wonderful continuing education opportunities. I hope you have a chance to take advantage of these opportunities. If there’s something we don’t offer that you would like to participate in, please let me know and we will see what we can do.
Thanks much to each person in the community who voted FVTC “Best of the Valley” again this year!
