|Bishop-Wisecarver Sponsorships and Community Involvement|
For Bishop-Wisecarver founder Bud Wisecarver, engineering and entrepreneurship are second nature. In this spirit, Bishop-Wisecarver strives to support students and programs related to engineering, education and manufacturing.
|Cuts to education funding have translated to fewer vocational programs in many schools. Without these programs, students are denied the experiences that could lead to rewarding – and lucrative – trade careers.|
Bud Wisecarver has worked hard for more than 30 years to bridge the gap between the business world and the educational community through sponsorships and classroom lectures. His daughter, Bishop-Wisecarver President Pamela Kan, continues that tradition through her work with the Industrial Association of Contra Costa County.
