MADISON – Representative James Edming (R-Glen Flora) congratulated the school districts serving students in the 87th Assembly District that received a TEACH Grant to help improve and increase technology infrastructure in their schools.
“During my time in office, improving access to the internet and technology for our rural communities has been a priority of mine,” said Rep.

The 87th Assembly District includes portions of Clark, Marathon, Rusk, Sawyer and Taylor Counties.
