LPC & Partners in Education Update

By Portage County Business Council

Leadership Portage County

As the school year approaches, things are speeding up at the Portage County Business Council. Leadership Portage County begins this week! (Check out next month’s Talent Talk for a list of participants and photos!)

Partners In Education

For Partners In Education (PIE), our focus is on how we can better serve our K-16 schools. A PIE meeting was held on August 16, with school leaders from across Central WI attending, as well as local businesses, UWSP and MSTC. The group discussed how business and education can work better together to serve students and parents in the region. PIE events, like an upcoming Reality Shop at SPASH on Nov. 9, are being planned for the fall. PIE is also partnering regionally through Centergy to further enhance the business-education partnership.

It’s an exciting time for talent development at the Portage County Business Council.
