School2Skills Session
For this session of the Chamber’s Schools2Skills program, students from Chippewa Falls Middle School learned about careers in Agriculture. They first toured AMPI in Jim Falls where they learned how cheese is made and how it is graded. After visiting Klinger Farm Market and Rooney Grain, the students stopped in at Chi-Hi’s Ag Department where the CVTC Agriculture instructor set up a variety of learning stations. We are grateful for these Chamber member businesses who opened their doors to host these students.

This year, over 30 businesses, organizations, and individuals generously sponsored, allowing this long-standing event to continue, since its start in 1986.
