A Door County business and a Kewaunee County school district are being recognized by the local manufacturing community for connecting the industry with education. The Northeast Wisconsin Manufacturing Alliance announced fifteen recipients for its Excellence in Manufacturing/K-12 Partnerships Awards on Friday. Therma-Tron-X in Sturgeon Bay won an educational partnership award for its commitment of $2 million to support the Sevastopol School District referendum last year. Luxemburg-Casco School District earned its manufacturing partnership distinction by reaching out to businesses like D&S Machine Service to learn how they can help each other in the future. Ann Franz from the NEW Manufacturing Alliance says both awards show how schools and businesses are working well together.
Therma-Tron-X and Luxemburg-Casco School District will formally receive their awards at an October 29th ceremony in Green Bay.
