Jason Geiger, department manager at the Eau Claire Menards Distribution Center, spoke to the Cadott senior class Nov. 6, about career opportunities with his company. Geiger says the opportunities Menards offers, are great for kids who don’t want to go on to a four-year university or who need a job while continuing their schooling. In addition to entry-level labor positions, there are careers available for those with accounting/finance backgrounds and e-commerce responsibilities. Students at the presentation were particularly interested in the automation aspect of the distribution center.

With help from paraprofessional Holly Kinard, Cornell 4K student Aiden Modl records findings on a medical chart Dec. 16, as part of Koenig’s Letter Hospital, the last of a unit in Kari Koenig’s class that had students pose as doctors. Through doctorrelated educational activities, the class had “exam rooms” set up to check the health and well-being of the class’ baby dolls.
