FVTC and WHBY Partnership Earns Honor

The Wisconsin Technical College District Boards Association (WTCDBA) has chosen Fox Valley Technical College and WHBY radio as one of its 2021 Media Award winners.

FVTC nominated WHBY for this award after partnering together in spring 2020 for a 12-part audio series called “Focus on Careers with FVTC.”

From May through August, Focus Fox Valley host Hayley Tenpas conducted a weekly interview with FVTC faculty and staff. Each segment focused on a timely school topic such as how classes would resume during the pandemic, in-demand programs as a result of the pandemic, and other targeted programs.

FVTC submitted an audio compilation of the interviews for the contest. Entries were judged on how they portray today’s technical college learning environment positively and inspire or engage the audience to explore the technical college system.

Congratulations to WHBY and host Hayley Tenpas!
