Results of school survey presented

at open forum

The results of Kohler School

Districts Strategic Communication Plan survey were presented to
about 45 in attendance at an open
forum at the school on January 11.
The survey, which was conducted in November/December by
School Perceptions, LLC sought
input toward helping the district
develop a communications plan
that meets the needs and priorities
of the community.

The survey results showed

that overall, respondents were
very satisfied with the District.
All results and data can be
viewed in full by clicking the Strategic Communication Plan link at
The responses for just the communications section of the survey
showed that 72% of parents rated
the Districts communication as
either very or somewhat effec-

Executives from Kohler Co.,

Sargento Foods Inc., Bemis Manufacturing Company, and Aurora
Health Care joined area economic
development leaders at a January
5 press conference in Sheboygan
to announce a new collective effort to address labor shortages.
Thousands of positions are currently available, with hundreds
more expected to be added in the
next few months. Some are newly created positions, while others
will open through retirements.
From August 2011 through
August 2015 Sheboygan County
saw the strongest job growth (7.3
percent) of any county in eastern
Wisconsin and nearly double the
statewide rate, according to Dane
Checolinski, director of the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC).
There are roughly 2,400 open positions throughout the community,
compared to the estimated 2,069
people classified as unemployed.
If the trend continues, Sheboygan
County will add another 1,000
jobs in 2016.
Steve Cassady, vice president
of supply chain and operations at
Kohler Co., said the firm currently
has 337 new full-time, year-round
job openings, with only 21 of the
openings being hourly factory
work. Almost three-quarters of
the openings are for administrative and professional positions in
areas such as engineering, sales,
logistics, information technology, and marketing and finance. If
retirements are included, Kohler

Co. has 500 openings. Throw in

seasonal positions, and the total
number of available openings at
Kohler Co. comes out to roughly
Foods Inc. currently has 80 positions open, and 300 are expected
to be added in 2016 due to retirements. Aurora Health Care, which
employs 1,700 in Sheboygan
County, said it hires 100-150 yearly, including recruitment of ten
doctors per year. Bemis Manufacturing Company, which employs
1,500, also expects many positions opening due to retirements.
If youre underemployed or
stuck in a cycle of temporary
work, Sheboygan County firms
have full-time careers that offer
opportunity for advancement.
Only five percent of Sheboygan
County job postings are for temporary or seasonal workers, said
Checolinski. Though more than
35 percent of the areas job offerings require a four-year degree,
many companies offer entry level
jobs covering all aspects of training investment and compensation
levels for full-time employment
that can pay as much as $35,000
per year.
The main roadblock to attracting new talent to Sheboygan
County (and Wisconsin in general) cited by business leaders is
the stigma attached to the state
as being too rural and too cold.
Louie Gentine, CEO of Sargento
Foods Inc., said, I think unfortunately we live in an area where its

tive. They prefer to receive most

of their communication regarding
the District through conversations
with teachers and administrators,
while Village residents would like
to receive that information from
The Kohler Villager and District
newsletters/mailings. Parents consistently use the District and
school websites to get information.

Area business leaders unveil initiative to

address labor shortage

harder for people to feel like they

would be comfortable, said Gentine. Often times, unfortunately,
people stop when the word Wisconsin is said. And thats really
Based on many online comments on Milwaukee news websites, many people outside of
Sheboygan associate the area with
quirky news headlines and a provincialism. One Milwaukee radio
station used to broadcast a regular
feature poking fun at Sheboygan.
But many who finally visit Sheboygan County often leave with a
different impression. Last fall, for
example, Kevin Struck, Growth
Management Educator for Sheboygan Countys UW-Extension,
hosted a group of community planners from northeastern Wisconsin.
Many in the group were pleasantly surprised by the redevelopment
along the riverfront and the lake.
I never wouldve guessed it was
so nice down there, one of the

planners said. This isnt the way

I imagined Sheboygan, said another.
Last year the UW-Extension
held a secret shopper type program where a small group of
young professionals from Kenosha visited Sheboygan, Kohler
and Sheboygan Falls to gauge
first impressions of the area. (Sheboygan professionals also visited
Kenosha for the same purpose).
Most respondents from Kenosha
said they would consider working
or starting a business in Sheboygan after visiting and talking to
business owners. They said the
most outstanding features of the
area were the civic pride, transit
system, lakefront, art museum,
river area, newer Kohler neighborhoods, and the general warmth
and charm. They also noted that
the Childrens Museum, farmers market, golf courses, charter
fishing, Fork to Table restaurant,
and local river walk vendors were

amenities that would bring them

back to the community.
In a broad effort to counter the negative perception and
create a more positive first impression of Sheboygan County,
the (SCEDC) and the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) unveiled a new
workforce attraction website at Visitors to
the website will have to dig deeper to discover where that Someplace Better actually is. The front
page of the website doesnt name
any location, but showcases Sheboygan County as still offering the
American dream with its beauty
and strong sense of community,
job listings culled from various
online sources, information on
housing, educational alternatives
for children, community and lifestyle information, and a printable
newcomers welcome guide.
We are trying to get past the
preconceived notions of rural and preconceived notions of
cold before individuals learn
what this area has, said Checolinski. The SCEDC also plans to
promote the Someplace Better
campaign at job fairs. Betsy Alles,
Executive Director for the SCCC
stated, Sheboygan County offers
a better life balance with short
commutes, globally-focused companies, world class recreation, innovative, award-winning schools
and friendly, safe communities.
We are truly Someplace Better.

Bomber Basketball Club seeks more members

and involvement
Submitted by the Bomber
Basketball Club
This season marks the fifth year
that the Bomber Basketball Club
has supported Kohler youth basketball in an effort to grow participation, engagement and ultimately success on and off the court
among our communitys young
Since our meager beginning,
the Club has made a positive impact for boys and girls 3rd thru
8th grade teams in the following
* Contributed more than $20,000

toward league and tournament

fees to help offset costs to families
* Purchased more than 100 basketballs to help make practices
more efficient for coaches and
more effective for players
* Funded participation in coaching clinics for new and experienced coaches to grow their
knowledge of the game and how
to lead their teams
* Helped facilitate collaboration
among youth and Varsity coaches to align strategy and vision for
success at the next level
The Bomber Basketball Club

has also made life easier on parents, coaches, players and our
community by simplifying our
fundraising strategy. By hosting
boys and girls Saturday leagues
for the past three years, weve
eliminated the need for door-todoor sales by players, weve exposed Kohler Schools amazing
facilities to neighboring schools,
and weve facilitated interaction
among parents as they pitch in
to fill volunteer positions during
these events.
However, despite all the good
the Club has accomplished in

such a short period of time, we are

in desperate need of your help!
Although we receive (and appreciate) support from coaches
and the school, the Club is comprised of just four members at this
time. In order to continue to make
an impact on the Kohler basketball program for years to come,
we need to grow our organization.
Specific positions were looking
to create and fill immediately include a treasurer and a secretary,
but we welcome anyone interested in getting involved! If you or
someone you know has a passion

for youth basketball and is willing to share just a few hours a

month to help, please contact us
at bomberbasketballclub@gmail.
com. (NOTE: Volunteers do not
need to have a child in the current
In your reply, please let us
know what talents youre looking
to share with the Club, and how
we can best connect with you going forward.
In the meantime, thank you for
your continued support of Kohler
youth basketball and GO BOMBERS!

Kohler Credit Union helps in donation of 1,100 toys

KOHLER, Wis. Kohler Credit Union participated in Salvation
Armys annual Toys for Tots campaign that took place mid-November through mid-December. The
credit unions efforts garnered
approximately 1100 toys to be donated to local families in need this
holiday season in the Sheboygan
and Ozaukee County areas.

eight of Kohler Credit Unions

branches as well as a matching

This is the second year we had
the honor of having the U.S. Marines on site to help us with Toys
for Tots. Their presence generates
such a positive energy around
the campaign and helps bring in

donations. Our employees and

members look forward to having
them here and I look forward to
continuing this tradition, said
Laura Gabrielse, vice president of
communications at Kohler Credit
Union. We are very fortunate to
be part of such a generous community.
The mission of the Toys for
Tots Program is to collect new,
unwrapped toys each year, and

distribute those toys as Christmas

gifts to less fortunate children
in the community in which the
campaign is conducted. The toys
collected at Kohler Credit Union
were distributed to the Salvation
Army of Sheboygan County, the
Salvation Army in Plymouth and
the Volunteer Center of Ozaukee
who manages the Salvation Army
holiday campaigns in Ozaukee

Kohler Credit Union is a $300

million not-for-profit, financial
cooperative, owned and governed by its members. Membership is open to anyone who lives
or works in Sheboygan, Calumet,
Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington or
Waukesha County; as well as their
immediate family members and
associations or organizations.
