UW-Eau Claire Student
Receives CVTC Scholarship
MAILED: April 25, 2000

          EAU CLAIRE — A University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire mathematics student is among the recipients of the Helen Barnes/Sandy Martin Memorial Peer Tutor Recognition Scholarship from the Chippewa Valley Technical College.
          Junior William Truttschel, Hartland, received a $150 scholarship from the CVTC Skills Center for excellence as an outstanding tutor. Truttschel is tutoring mathematics in the areas of trade and industry and computer information systems.
          Dorothy Sorlie, instructor and coordinator of the CVTC Peer Tutor Program, said Truttschel really knows how to establish rapport with older students. He makes them feel safe and accepted, which is one of the most important criteria for a tutor, she said.
          "Bill understands these components and their relationship to the educational process. His reliability and sincerity are superb," Sorlie said. "I hope he pursues a career in education. We need teachers like Bill."
          Truttschel's tutoring at the technical college is one example of the many working relationships between UW-Eau Claire and CVTC, Sorlie said.
