I Norwalk Student 1 Education Foundation Activities and Events By Lori Miller, President NSEF congratulates teacher Pam Nichols for being granted the NSEF 2012 Spring Grant. She will be awarded $500 to use for her Engaged Learning project. Thanks to all who applied. The fall 2012 application can be found on the website. Our "Clicker Campaign" is complete! We also congratulate senior scholarship winners. The NSEF Dedication Award was presented to Alec LaVelle in honor of Brenda Hurdle, a former Norwalk School employee. This award was donated by her family and friends. Two scholarships will be awarded in succes- sive years to a dedicated student who has overcome adversity. The Principal's Award, funded by NSEF, was granted to Olivia Bratt. A new award that you will see for many years to come, the Vivian Anderson Scholarship, was granted to Shelby Seibert. This scholarship will be awarded to a senior girls basketball player in honor of Vivian Ander- son, a former Norwalk graduate and girls basketball star. This scholarship has been generously provided by her husband, Robert Schneider of Sun City West, Arizona. NSEF thanks Marlene Tuggle for two years of ser- vice to the Foundation Board. Watch for upcoming in- formation regarding Pepsi Refresh and the Dance Mara- thon. Thank you Norwalk for supporting education and our kids!! Legislative News By State Representative Julian B. Garrett j ulian.garrett@legis.state.ia.us Unemployment Rates ,, ,Decline Iowa Workforce Devel- opment has issued a report on unemployment rates for the State of Iowa and on a county by county ba- sis as of April 2012. Iowa continues to be in much better shape than the na- tion as a whole. The na- tional unemployment rate is 8.1%. The rate for the State of Iowa is 5.1%. One year ago the rate was 5.9% for the State of Iowa. In our area, progress continues to dence in the future is a big factor in encouraging busi- nesses to expand or en- couraging new businesses to start up. Shortage of Skilled Workers It is interesting to see that there is actually a shortage here:m_ Iowa of workers with certain "middle level" skills, ac- cording to Iowa Workforce Development. These are jobs that require a high school diploma and some additional training. This ERY Weekend! Entire Family Medical/Dental, 401K w/match, Paid Vac/ Holidays. Avg $1,100- $1,200 weekly.

I have heard from several sources that weld- ers are especially in de- mand. Workers who have been laid off might want to consider some additional training for some of these middle level jobs. Young people who are graduat- ing from high school may want to look into training for jobs for which there is a demand. Some of these jobs are relatively high paying. I hear too often of young people who even get four year degrees, then find that there is little de- mand for the kind of train- ing they have. It's high school graduation time right now. This is a good time for graduates, and their parents, to be think- ing about their future. For those who are planning on more education and train- ing, it would pay to look into the job market and get the kind of training and education for which jobs are available.
