Employees of Golden State Foods Donate 80 Winter Jackets to WUSD Students

Every year WUSD is the recipient of many generous donations from community organizations, whether it is donated time serving the District and/or resources. Each year the employees of Golden State Foods raise funds to donate winter jackets for our students. Last week we received 80 jackets for our students and they have already been handed out. Thank you to the employees of Golden State Foods for your donation. Our students, families, and staff greatly appreciate your donation and your support.

 


Congratulations to Karen Kachel, recognized as the Teachers on Call Substitute of the Month for September in the Wisconsin region. Karen is recognized for her commitment to WUSD by subbing nearly every day, having excellent attendance, and receiving consistent five-star ratings. We are fortunate to have outstanding substitutes like Karen! #TheWhippetWay


2012 WHS Graduate – Aaron Brunner awarded a patent

Aaron Brunner was just awarded his first patent for work he did at Spectrum Brands between his junior and senior year in college. The patent is a redesign of a hand-mixer blade. When given an opportunity to do some 3-D modeling with his work team at Spectrum Brands, Aaron suggested to his work team the concept of creating a helical blade. Some models were developed, which led to the patent. The redesign changed how the mixer redistributes the batter by funneling the batter up the blades instead of only circulating the batter on the horizontal plane. Aaron currently works for Milwaukee Forge. Aaron attributes his interest in engineering from his learning experiences at Whitewater High School. He credits    Mr. Tony Tautges, WHS physics teacher, for showing him how science can be applied to everyday life. What’s next? Aaron believes the mixer will go into production but no release date is scheduled. Aaron is the son of Whitewater residents Kevin and Nancy Brunner.
