Eight students from Shawano Community High School joined community representatives recently in attending a two-day conference on economic issues.
The participating students were Laura Arens, Sam Boivin, Sadie Cummings, Hannah Hass, Emily Jones, Brinley Kowalkowski, Hannah Milavitz and Addie Shuler. They were joined by faculty member Mart Grams along with community representatives state Rep. Gary Tauchen, Pastor Susan Phillips, Jeff and Holly Zander, and Ed and Gloria Grys.
The event was the Nobel Conference at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota, where scientific researchers gather each year to present and discuss current issues.
The topic Sept. 27-28 was “In Search of Economic Balance,” and it focused on such issues as poverty, inequality and education.
The Shawano students were sponsored by the Mielke Family Foundation.
