Leader Reporter

GREEN BAY When his mind is set on getting something done, Wencil Froelich is the kind of guy that gets it done.

And nearly 70 years later, he received his high school diploma Thursday night at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

"It's something he's always wanted to do since he worked most of his life," said Froelich's instructor and son-in-law Myles Belke of Bonduel.

After so many years, Froelich finally started the journey to earn his diploma about seven months ago, when he enrolled at the NWTC center in Shawano.

Matthias instrumental in success of summer school

The Shawano-Gresham Summer School program will begin Monday, boasting an enrollment of 1,249 total students this year.

"This program has tripled in size since I've been here," Assistant Superintendent Bill Matthias said. "The kids and parents just love it."

Even more amazing is the fact that more students use the Shawano Community High School facilities in one day of summer school than on any given day of the regular school year.

"We run regular bus routes as well, and we pick up and drop off for 10 day care centers in the area," Matthias said.
