Lisa Klein of WKBT-TV in La Crosse was honored with the 2018 Media Award by the Wisconsin Technical College District Boards Association.
Klein’s report, Youth Build, aired in May of last year. Youth Build is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, and is a paid alternative education program. Participants split time at a construction site and a classroom, learning building skills while being paid and earning GED/HSED credits.
