NWTC celebrating 15 years in Luxemburg

Thursday June 13, 2019
What was an idea to bring Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) to the residents of northeast Wisconsin turned into a big win for not only NWTC, but the community around the College’s district.
NWTC is excited to celebrate 15 years in Luxemburg. NWTC opened the Luxemburg Regional Learning Center (RLC) located on Highway 54 in 2004.
“Kewaunee County is such a welcoming and friendly place to have a business,” said NWTC- Luxemburg Regional Manager Sarah Nelson. “People are interested in partnering on projects for the good of the county.”
Nelson is the manager at the Luxemburg RLC. She has been managing the center, since 2000 when services were offered from rented space in the principal’s office at Holy Trinity school in Casco.
Space was tight according to Nelson with two workstations and a bookstore. “The school was so accommodating and friendly. We used the kitchen, the cafeteria, library and classrooms for evening and weekend classes,” Nelson said.
Back in 2000, classes were offered in sewing, childcare continuing education, first aid and other personal enrichment type classes. College leaders quickly realized more space was needed as the requests for classes turned to computer software and other credit bearing classes.  
In 2004, the Luxemburg location officially opened with a computer lab, classrooms, video conferencing, meeting rooms and a student lounge.
Now, the center has grown to serve over 1,200 people a year; where students take classes, complete a certificate or degree, and access all the services available on a larger campus. Top programs offered in Luxemburg include: Accounting, Nursing Assistant, Business Management and General Studies Transfer.
 “I want to thank the community for trusting NWTC to meet the educational needs of Kewaunee County,” Nelson said.
NWTC has a total of five Regional Learning Centers with locations in Shawano, Luxemburg, Crivitz, Oconto Falls and Aurora.
