KENOSHA COUNTY - A school leader just arrived back from Taiwan, to get his students to stand out to Foxconn.

Shoreland Lutheran High School is just two miles from where the new Foxconn site is going to be built. The school's president traveled all the way to Taiwan to make sure his students stand out from all the rest.

Paul Scriver tells us he met with workers in the company's medical group.

"They just are looking at cutting-edge technology. That's a big part of what they do and will be part of what they do in Wisconsin," said Scriver.

He described different mockups of medical technology they are working to develop right now.

Curriculum in science math and technology have already been tweaked for his students in the Village of Somers, specifically for skills Foxconn is looking to develop.

Scriver's mission to Asia also included recruiting students from China and Vietnam to study in Wisconsin, "They all want to be engineers so that worked out well for us to show them our dedicated engineering program."

They hope to have eight international students come to their high school by next Fall.
