KAUKAUNA, Wis. (WFRV)  - A Kaukauna teacher says his mission is to help students find a direction in life.

Kaukauna High School's Technology Teacher, Nels Lawrence is greeted by familiar faces everywhere he goes.

And he figures he's helped place most of those students in highly technical jobs thanks to the school's apprenticeship program.

Students have a choice of which industry they would like to study more in depth.

After 18 years of teaching, Lawrence's formula of support and encouragement continues to work.
