NEW Manufacturing Alliance 3rd Annual President’s Cup Scholarship Golf Scramble

August 5, 2020

Mark Kallas, President/Owner, of PanelTEK LLC recently participated in the NEW Manufacturing Alliance 3rd annual President’s Cup Scholarship Golf Scramble on August 5, 2020 at Black Wolf Run’s River course. The event’s net proceeds will go towards the Alliance’s college scholarship fund.

Northeast Wisconsin Manufacturing Alliance (NEWMA) is a group of Manufacturers, working with educators, workforce development, chambers of commerce and state organizations to promote manufacturing in our Northeast Wisconsin region. NEWMA’s vision is to create a positive view of manufacturing careers through advance collaboration efforts that promote the health of Manufacturing.

The NEW Manufacturing Alliance 3rd Annual President’s Cup Scholarship Golf is unlike any golf scramble. What makes the event unique is the networking and team-building amongst presidents/manufacturing leaders, educators, and state and local organizations to collaborate ideas and actions to promote workforce development while raising scholarship funds.

While Mark’s group fell “slightly” short of the top spot in the scramble, the event was a resounding success again this year! The NEW Manufacturing Alliance has sponsored over $300,000 in college scholarships to date. Participants included powerhouse manufacturers from throughout Northern Wisconsin. Among the attendees were Rockwell Automation, Sargento Foods Inc., Paper Converting Machine Corporation (PCMC), Kohler Co., Lindquist Machine Corp., Optima Machinery, Oshkosh, and many more. A fun day was had by all!
