JUNIORS & SENIORS: Dunwoody College of Technology (located in Mpls., MN) will be launching a regional training center this fall in Winsted, MN. The initial course offerings will be two Fast Track (short-term) programs training welders and CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machine Operators. Several manufacturers located between Delano-Winsted-Hutchinson-Litchfield are guaranteeing employment following the successful completion of this training due to their shortage of skilled workers. The new training center is a great “post-secondary training option” for graduating HS seniors and will provide an affordable option to further one’s education close to home and a good job upon completion. With sufficient enrollment the training center will open this fall with an emphasis on “hands-on” lab work. Learn by doing! A meeting will take place this Friday, April 25 for all interested HLWW juniors and seniors in the auditorium during 4th period.


STUDENTS: If you’re looking for a summer job lead, please stop into the office for info.

Sponsored Post – The American Diabetes Association estimates that 8.5 percent of people in the US have diabetes.

Some will be unaware that they have this disease until they’re treated for one of its life-threatening complications, such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage, or amputation.

The diabetes education team at Hutchinson Health takes a proactive approach to diabetes, helping those who have been diagnosed or are at risk.

Hutchinson Health’s comprehensive self-management education program meets national standards, and was recently awarded the American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate.

The four-year certificate is awarded to programs that offer effective education as an essential component of diabetes treatment.

“The process gives professionals a national standard for measuring the quality of their services, and it gives patients extra assurance that they’ll receive quality care,” noted Lynn Marcus, a registered dietitian at Hutchinson Health.

According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the US, and about 5,205 Americans are diagnosed with this disease each day.

Hutchinson Health is one of the largest independent health care providers in Minnesota. Services include primary and specialty care clinics, emergency services, and specialty programs. To learn more, go to
