Caledonia residents Otto and Beverly Tarnowski are giving the largest private donation to Gateway Technical College in the school's history. A wing of the new SC Johnson integrated Manufacturing and Technology Center is named Tarnowski Hall in their honor.
Beverly attended the official grand opening Tuesday of the 18,000 square foot addition to Gateway's Sturtevant facility.
Fisk Johnson, CEO of SC Johnson, also delivered remarks, saying iMET will help train workers to fill the skills gap area employers are talking about.
"There are good jobs that need filling but the gap between jobs and workers is troubling during this time of high unemployment," he said. "Southeast Wisconsin has a jewel in Gateway that other communities don't have."
