Governor Tony Evers visits Summit Elementary School

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Governor Tony Evers–who won re-election Tuesday night–wasted no time getting back to work.

The governor visited with students at Summit Elementary in La Crosse and even joined them for lunch and recess.

Evers, a former teacher, says visits like these put everything in perspective.

“Sometimes they’ll talk about not having enough books and not having this or that, but at the end of the day, I think, primarily, it’s just a reminder of how important school is to their future success,” said Evers.

Evers also made a stop at an elementary school in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
