The camp will culminate with a living history presentation in which students portray important historical figures from local, state and national history. Please send a nut free snack and water bottle each day of camp.

Governor Walker Visits Hudson High School

Governor Walker surrounded by students in the auditorium.

It was an honor to have Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker visit Hudson High School this morning (Friday, June 2nd). He was able to take a brief tour of the school where we highlighted the great work of our students and staff. Kudos to the Chemistry and Orchestra students who represented Hudson High School’s academic excellence.

Following his tour of the school, Governor Walker addressed students, staff, parents and community members in the auditorium. His remarks focused on the opportunities available to students who are going on to post-secondary learning or the workforce in Wisconsin. Perfect timing for our seniors who were in the audience as they prepare for graduation tomorrow. The Governor also spoke about his investment in K-12 school funding in his biennial budget proposal.
