Schult named to Dean’s List and Commandant’s List at the United States Air Force Academy

Cadet First Class Hailey Schult of Merrill, a Senior at the United States Air Force Academy, a four-year university  just north of Colorado Springs, at the base of the Front Range, in Col., has been named to both the Dean’s List and the Commandant’s List. She will graduate in May with a Bachelor of Science  in Behavioral Science.
The Dean’s List requires students to receive a minimum 3.0 GPA (minus grades from physical education courses), and the Commandant’s List is an honor afforded to the top third of the class (unless they are on probation for any reason).
Schult’s job at the Air Force Academy is Wing Force Support.  She is a Cadet Officer who lives in the dorms with those who have Wing jobs.  To prepare Cadets for the life of an Officer, the Cadet Wing at the U.S. Air Force Academy simulates the organization of an operational Air Force Wing. Cadets are responsible for running and operating the Wing, which affords them the opportunity to learn how to use a chain of command, how to function as part of various military formations, and how military units organize to accomplish collective tasks. Within the Cadet Wing, First Class Senior Cadets hold the position of Cadet Officers. For more info about USAFA go to

Northcentral Technical College and UW-Stevens Point partner to expand local Liberal Arts transfer opportunities

In February 2022, Northcentral Technical College (NTC) and the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point announced the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System, at its Feb. 11, 2022, meeting, had approved a new opportunity for local learners to earn their Associate of Arts and Associate of Science in Liberal Arts through a new Liberal Arts transfer program between the institutions.

The Liberal Arts degrees prepare students to enter the Bachelor’s Degree programs at UW-Stevens Point with Junior status. Students transferring to UW-Stevens Point will meet the General Education requirements of UW-Stevens Point. Courses will be offered in a variety of modalities to meet learner needs.

“We know that NTC students desire to transfer to UW-Stevens Point and we are thrilled to be able to provide this seamless pathway for them,” said NTC President Dr. Jeannie Worden. “This agreement ensures learners have the opportunity to obtain their Baccalaureate Degree locally and local employers have access to the skilled workforce they need.”

“Students are the clear winners with these partnerships,” said UW-Stevens Point Chancellor Dr. Thomas Gibson. “Each of our institutions has an important role in our communities. As strong partners in our communities’ success, UW-Stevens Point and NTC are committed to meeting the needs of our students and their families and enhancing opportunities for all residents.”

Working collaboratively, UW-Stevens Point and NTC will provide affordable, accessible pathways to Bachelor’s Degrees while positively contributing to Wisconsin’s statewide attainment goal for 60% of Wisconsin adults to hold a postsecondary credential by 2027. The collaborative degree program contains elements designed to focus on career pathways and to enhance student success.

“Access to an on-site UW-Stevens Point adviser is an added value that will help NTC students get further faster toward their degree progress, either immediately or down the road,” noted Chancellor Gibson. “It will make the transition smoother to UW-Stevens Point campuses in Wausau, Marshfield, or Stevens Point to complete a Bachelor’s Degree.”
The partnership benefits the entire region by creating additional avenues for residents to pursue careers without leaving north central Wisconsin. Students seeking to start or advance their careers now have more options close to home.

“We recognize that current NTC students and NTC alumni will benefit from this partnership,” said President Worden.

“As Wisconsin’s employers continually demand a better educated, more nimble workforce that can adapt to changing demands, we are excited to partner with UW-Stevens Point to provide educational opportunities that retain talent in north central Wisconsin and support our local economy.”

2022 Aspirus Scholars named to tackle physician shortage

The Aspirus Health Foundation recently awarded three medical students $450,000 in scholarships through its Aspirus Scholars Program, and one of those students is Hailey Daigle, a first year medical student from Merrill. Daigle is studying at the Medical College of Wisconsin-Central Wisconsin campus (MCW-CW) and accepted her scholarship during a ceremony at Aspirus Wausau Hospital (AWH).

The Aspirus Scholars Program is a community collaboration to address the national physician shortage and meet the needs of people and communities in north central Wisconsin and Upper Michigan today and for future generations.
It provides generous scholarships for tuition to medical students and connects them to Aspirus and the communities served by Aspirus during their training. In return, students commit to employment at Aspirus in the areas of primary care, psychiatry, or general surgery.

“Our Aspirus Scholars award recipients already have strong ties to our area and are passionate about medicine and caring for patients,” said Tara Draeger, interim Executive Director of the Aspirus Health Foundation. “Each will be a tremendous addition to the Aspirus family and help us grow access to vital services in our communities.”

The Aspirus Scholars Program is a forward-looking approach that could bring as many as 62 new primary care, psychiatry, or general surgery providers to communities in north central Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan by the year 2030. It leverages the unique opportunity to collaborate with a college partner whose program is specifically designed to attract students interested in learning and working in community and rural settings.

A selection committee made up of Aspirus physicians and community members from Wisconsin and the U.P. screened the applications and selected the sixth class of Aspirus Scholars.

“This program is a great example of our commitment to ensuring our patients and families have access to the best health care providers to serve our patients today and for future generations,” said Matt Heywood, President & CEO of Aspirus, Inc. “Securing these types of commitments early helps us supplement our efforts to recruit physicians to practice in rural areas.”

The Aspirus Scholars Program is made possible through contributions from community partners such as The Legacy Foundation of Central Wisconsin; Judd S. Alexander Foundation; Dwight and Linda Davis Foundation, B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation; Dudley Foundation, Molinaro Family, and individual donors.

Vital investments were also made by Aspirus Ironwood Hospital (Ironwood, Mich.); Aspirus Iron River Hospital (Iron River, Mich.); Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital (Laurium, Mich.); Aspirus Langlade Hospital (Antigo, Wis.); Aspirus Medford Hospital; Aspirus Ontonagon Hospital (Ontonagon, Mich.); Aspirus Riverview Hospital (Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.); and Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
