The College & Career Academy at WHS would like to thank Jeremy Wagler and Michelle Ellis for coming in to speak with our junior and senior students on March 30, 2021.

Jeremy is the owner/operator of Wagler Competition Products and Wagler Motorsports Park. He told the students about how he came to be the owner of the two businesses and the connections he has made world-wide. Through his businesses, he has met and worked with several famous people such as Street Outlaws Farmtruck and Azn. He has also worked with other Discovery Channel personalities.

Michelle is the contact person for Turning Point Education Center (Open Arms). At the Education Center, students 18 and older can earn a certification in welding, CNC, CDL, C.N.A., or teaching assistant. The classes are free and are offered at different times of the day throughout the year. Students may pick up a brochure in the Guidance Office. 

"This is exactly the type of local opportunities our students need to be exposed to", says WHS Principal Steve Peterson. Peterson goes on to say, "Kids need to see there are multiple paths to success, and when you don't see something that fits, forge a new one". 

If you are a local business owner/operator/manager, and you would be willing to share your journey with our students, please contact WHS Principal Steve Peterson (812) 254-3860.
