Despite a rainy and unseasonably cold day, more than 260 volunteers turned out to participate in WCTC’s Earth Day and Community Cleanup event on Saturday, April 22. 

WCTC students, faculty, staff and community volunteers came together to clean up area parks, trails, highway on- and off-ramps, the main WCTC Pewaukee campus and more to beautify the green spaces for all to enjoy.

“WCTC’s 100th anniversary is a significant milestone, and the residents of Waukesha County and surrounding communities are one of the key reasons for the College’s success,” said Richard Barnhouse, Ph.D., president of WCTC. “They are our partners, supporters, students – and families of students – and we welcome them to participate in our upcoming special events planned throughout the year. The College’s centennial is a celebration for the community as a whole.”

Future 100th anniversary activities include a golf outing, celebrity chef dinner and formal gala. Learn more.
