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.
