Western Technical College will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on Monday, Oct. 4 from 10:00 a.m.-noon and from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at Western’s newly remodeled Apprenticeship and Industry Training Center, 2860 21st Place S., La Crosse.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. to celebrate the grand opening after an extensive renovation project back in 2020. The $3.5 million project significantly upgrades the facility, including expanded training space, renovated classrooms, and a new student lounge. The facility was completed in the fall of 2020, but a formal ceremony celebrating the reopening was delayed due to COVID-19.

The featured speaker is Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Secretary-Designee Amy Pechacek, as well as President Roger Stanford. Following the ceremony, tours and refreshments will be available. Masks are required at the event and the building is limited to 50 people at one time.

“We are so excited to finally share this state-of-the-art facility with the community,” said Western President Roger Stanford. “This new facility allows us to further support the workforce opportunities across the region – something needed now more than ever.”
