Standing Up for Rural Wisconsin Awards


MADISON (WKOW) -- State Superintendent Tony Evers was at the capitol Monday giving awards to nine projects that enrich the quality of life for rural communities in Wisconsin.

"We can find ways for our rural communities to have family-sustaining jobs," said Evers during the ceremony, "so that our young adults have a choice in where they live, not where they have to live."
