“Waupaca Foundry has had a long history of partnering with the local schools where we have our plants located. It has been our experience that some of the greatest employees we have come from our local school systems. Scholarships not only help the students with the high cost of education but also many times will bring these students back home after school is completed to work in full-time professional positions.” – Kirk Kallio
