To celebrate Holmen student achievements in the DECA program and business related classes in the district, State Superintendent of Public Instruction and 2018 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers visited the high school Tuesday morning.
Evers visit started at the Frederic D. Frick Administrative Center where the Holmen High School DECA students, supervisors, and parents shared a presentation.
"We tend to get down on young people from time to time when they don't meet our expectations, but so many exceed our expectations by a lot," Evers said. "So, this is just a great opportunity for me."
Community leaders sat in and also commended the business education happening in Holmen High School.
"Mr. Skogen actually kind of captured it when he talked about how extraordinary these young people are, and they're extraordinary because they have great teachers, they have great mentors in the community, and obviously, great parents behind them," Evers said.
Education is a critical part of Evers' campaign to become governor.
