ATC welcomes Milwaukee Academy of Science students

High school students from Milwaukee Academy of Science recently visited American Transmission Co. to learn about careers in the electric transmission industry.

Milwaukee Academy of Science is a K-12 charter school founded almost 20 years ago by the late T. Michael Bolger, former president and CEO of the Medical College of Wisconsin, to promote science, technology, engineering and math curriculum and encourage students living in Milwaukee to attend college and enter STEM careers.

The MAS students who attended the ATC event are interested in different applications for engineering as they decide which fields to study in college. Their visit began with a tour of ATC’s system operations control room. They also heard a panel discussion by ATC employees who shared information about their education, careers and varied responsibilities in their roles at ATC, and answered questions.

ATC employees enjoy their work and are inspired by helping to educate the next generation about the great opportunities available in our industry. We appreciate having the chance to welcome MAS students and look forward to hearing from them as they make their education decisions and begin their careers.
