At the pinnacle of any quest for knowledge or skill stands a student who has become the teacher. In Park Falls and Phillips, it’s a proverb personified as area students aid senior citizens in adopting the internet through the Connected Aging Communities curriculum.

Thanks to grant funding through Milwaukee-based Bader Philanthropies, the Connected Aging Communities initiative launched in December with “Learn-to-Connect” events at the Chequamegon and Phillips High Schools. Now, of course, our seniors are getting familiar with the technology, but the community development is becoming apparent, and talks have already begun to expand the program in Price County.
