NWTC Delivering Credentials

NWTC in Oconto Falls has many classes available in a number of fields but now more than ever the site is delivering credentials in areas of business that companies and their employees can finish locally. Here are two that can be started and completed within the learner’s schedule:

Program Highlight: Leadership Development

The Leadership Development program is designed for persons who are already engaged in, or are preparing for, leadership roles in an organization.
Traditionally, a supervisor plans, organizes, directs, and coordinates activities of non-management employees in various occupational settings; trains and evaluates employees under her or his authority; implements policy decisions and work systems established by upper management; and facilitates communication and work flow. This program builds on these skills. In addition it prepares future leaders by teaching system(s), variation, and continuous improvement processes; how to be facilitators rather than bosses; effectively managing work place diversity; how to help organizations adapt to change and encourage innovation; leadership skills; critical thinking skills; and communication skills appropriate to a team environment.

Program Highlight: Human Resources
The Human Resources Associate Degree program prepares the learner for success in the dynamic work environments of: employment law, training and development of employees, compensation and benefits administration, labor relations supporting bargaining agreements, and wellness and safety initiatives.

Abrams Theatre Presents “Once Upon a Mattress

OnceAbrams Theatre Presents “Once Upon a Mattress”

Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will present, Once Upon a Mattress (Music by, Mary Rodgers; Book by, Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer; Lyrics by, Marshall Barer) December 5, 2014 – December 14, 2014 at The Byng Community Theater in Abrams.

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise!  Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab?  Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste?  Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night?  Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans.  Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Opening night is Friday, December 5 at 7:00pm.  Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. will be celebrating by having an Opening Night Gala.  Patrons that attend opening night will receive complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks after the show (with the cast and crew).
