Florence Schools hosted a variety of guests on Monday as part of Career and Technical Education (CTE) month, including State Superintendent Tony Evers, representatives from BOSS Snowplow and Crystal Steel House, and past Florence Superintendent Jan Dooley.

Evers first visited the business and information technology computer lab where Kay McLain, instructor and 2017 Wisconsin Rural Teacher of the Year, gave an overview of the program. Evers was able to ask students about their accounting and office internships as well as industry certifications and college credit available through partnership with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.
