This award highlights the opportunity for Northeast Wisconsin high school students to enhance their technical skills and career prospects. FVL was selected based on their "effective approaches to stimulating student learning" by offering more classes and challenging work-based learning experiences. This honor was conferred by the UA 400 Pipe Trades, the Mechanical Contractors Association (MCA), and Miller Electric. FVL was presented with a Miller Multimatic Wire Feed Welder valued at $2K.
