“Until you reach out, you really don’t know what you’re missing.” says Glenda Butterfield-Boldig, principal of the only school in the White Lake School District.

“You don’t realize the resources that are available in your communities -- even small, rural communities.”

White Lake was one of eight programs which won Standing Up for Rural Wisconsin awards in November.

The Department of Public Instruction created eight videos, ranging one to three minutes long, featuring representatives of each program.
