Rhinelander Program

The Rhinelander School District is taking inspiration from across the state, hoping to steer students toward their passion, whatever that may be.

RHINELANDER, Wis. (WAOW) -- The Rhinelander School District is taking inspiration from across the state, hoping to steer students toward their passion, whatever that may be.

They're aiming to do so through a program called "Inspire Rhinelander," hoping to encourage students to find the best option for them after they graduate, whether it's entering the workforce straight away or going to school.

This is the first year the district is offering the program; Superintendent Eric Burke is hoping to see it grow from its early stages.

"Businesses need employers and for the [Northwoods] to work, we need people that are going to be doing all kinds of jobs and careers so I think it's a win-win for our businesses, our students, and our families," Burke said.

This is not just a seminar or a career fair, students will have access to job shadows, mock interviews, and apprenticeship information. 

To learn more about this program, Burke recommends contacting Rhinelander High School administration. To go to their website, click here.
