Tech Ed Champion a Major College Partner

Nov 18, 2019

Oshkosh Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Wilson Jones earned the 2019 Technical Education Champion award. Nominated by FVTC, Mr. Jones received the award at a recent Wisconsin Technical College District Boards Association meeting held at Waukesha County Technical College.

The award recognizes a leader’s commitment to advancing technical education initiatives. Under the leadership of Wilson Jones, Oshkosh Corporation employees serve on various advisory committees at the college, and the company has a longstanding history of hiring FVTC graduates and providing in-kind donations to support learning technologies. A $50,000 donation from the company’s foundation toward the FVTC Foundation’s Promise scholarship program helped jumpstart a nearly million-dollar fundraising campaign to provide free tuition and books for eligible incoming high school students and adult learners.

Congratulations, Mr. Jones, and thank you for your support of FVTC.
