LUXEMBURG, Wis. – Arabella Adams, a senior at Luxemburg-Casco High School, has been presented with a $10,000 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation 2019 Initiative Scholarship at a recognition luncheon hosted by Herb Kohl, Wisconsin philanthropist and businessman.

The Herb Kohl Initiative Scholarship recognizes state “students who have demonstrated a high level of motivation, have shown strong promise for achieving success in college and beyond, and have overcome significant personal obstacles or adversity.”

In summing up Arabella, Luxemburg-Casco school officials described her as “a twenty-first century Renaissance figure, equally adept in and intrigued by the arts and sciences.” She also was saluted as an advocate for the arts, particularly music, and a student possessing considerable musical talent. Arabella is said to have the ability to pick up practically any instrument and not only play it, but play it skillfully.

Arabella plans to study mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. She is the daughter of Daniel and Heather Adams of Luxemburg.

In December 2018, Arabella and another student joined with a high-school English teacher to play Christmas carols for students and staff outside the main office on the day before Christmas break. Further demonstrating her passion for music, she wrote a major research paper for her English 12 class that addressed the impact of music education and advocated for expanding access to it for students throughout their academic careers.

The Herb Kohl Educational Foundation has recognized educational excellence for the past 30 years by awarding scholarships annually to 200 graduating high school students throughout Wisconsin. Since its establishment in 1990, the foundation has given $17.8 million to state students, teachers, principals and schools.

Luxemburg-Casco School District to Hold Career Readiness Day

posted Feb 19, 2019, 8:04 AM by Cory Romdenne   [ updated Apr 19, 2019, 7:04 AM ]

First-of-its kind program in area will bring 9th-grade students into local businesses
LUXEMBURG, Wis. – The Luxemburg-Casco School District on Feb. 20 is launching the Career Readiness Business Tour, thought to be the first such program in Northeast Wisconsin to expose a full grade level to all employment opportunities. It complements the district’s existing Youth Apprenticeship program, now in its second year.

The Career Readiness Business Tour, open to freshman students, gives firsthand exposure to potential careers through tours and presentations on career and apprenticeship opportunities. Each participating student will visit five different businesses throughout Kewaunee and Brown counties over the course of the day.

“Our goal is to change the school experience by exposing the students to things they otherwise would not do,” says Mike Snowberry, director of learning services for the Luxemburg-Casco School District. “The more we let them know about, and experience, career options, they are better positioned to know what courses they should take during their final three years of high school.

“The district feels strongly that it must prepare students to be college, career and community ready. As part of that, we believe it is important we provide hands-on, authentic experiences that provide students with awareness and skills needed for whatever future pathway they choose. We are excited to offer this program.”

The 18 businesses and institutions participating in the Career Readiness Business Tour are:

2019 Freshman Career Day

Abts Bou-Matic
America’s Service Line
Bank of Luxemburg
Belmark
Cabinet Creations & Design
D&S Machine Service
EMT International
Hall’s Calf Ranch
Harmann Studios
Hudson-Sharp Machine Co.
Kewaunee Co. Sheriff’s Dept.
Local 158 Electrical Workers
Kinnard Heating & Cooling
Northeast Wis. Technical College
Northern Concrete
Schneider National
Univ. of Wisconsin-Green Bay
WS Packaging Group

At Luxemburg-Casco High School, as students enter in 9th grade they are exposed to 16 different career clusters that provide them an educational progression and career pathways, which they can combine with a rigorous elective program of Youth Apprenticeship starting in their junior year.

The 16 career clusters are:
Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources
Architecture & Construction
Arts & A/V Technology
Business Management/Training
Education & Training
Finance
Government & Public Administration
Health Sciences
Hospitality & Tourism
Human Services
IT
Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security
Manufacturing
Marketing
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)
Transportation, Distribution & Logistics

The first step in each student’s educational progression is this week’s Career Readiness Business Tour. At each stop on the tour, the company will introduce itself, discuss job opportunities and academic requirements of those positions, give forward-looking thoughts on the industry, answer questions from the students and provide a tour of the facility.

Following the Career Readiness Business Tour, Luxemburg-Casco students will have the opportunity to apply for the district’s Youth Apprenticeship program as they register for their junior-year courses.
