In January, Waukesha County Technical College in Pewaukee began a year-long celebration of its 100th anniversary.
The blue and gold festivities – including the reintroduction of “Ollie” the owl mascot – marked a milestone in the college’s history, said Rich Barnhouse, who joined WCTC as president in 2020. But it also means he’s just getting started.
“I have to make decisions that are going to be impactful years from now,” Barnhouse said. “That means we can’t take shortcuts today. Let’s look to the horizon – where are we going, and how are we going to get there?”
