RHINELANDER - Getting a couple of students to pass an exam takes a lot of dedication, but getting the whole class to pass is a lot of hard work.
That's what one Northwoods College did last week.
This is the second year all Nicolet College Medical Assistant graduates passed the national exam.
This position is essential to the medical field.
Medical Assistants duties can vary from working in the lab to removing patients stitches.
The Medical Assistant Program Director says they've always strived for a 100 percent passing rate.
"With Nicolet College graduates being able to pass the test, they're able to find work in this area and the benefit is into the communities that we serve." said Nicolet Medical Assistant Director, Candy Dailey.
One of the students in the program thinks the hands on experience has helped her out a lot.
"It reflects on our instructors and the work that you put in. You don't put the work in, you're not going to pass it." said Medical Assistant Student, Kelli Killbury.
15 out of the 18 students are already working in the health care field.
SAWYER COUNTY - Authorities have attributed another death in Wisconsin to the storms that caused widespread flooding in the Upper Midwest.

The man is identified as 55-year-old James Pluff, of Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Sheriff's officials say the woman and children suffered non-life threatening injuries and were taken to a hospital in Rice Lake.

RHINELANDER - You need to really get outside into nature to truly appreciate it. That's what Oneida County hopes you experience walking through its new pollinator garden behind the courthouse, which is close to completion.
Workers from Hanson's Garden Village laid out the key part to getting you into that garden along Baird Avenue on Tuesday. The gravel walkway allows water to drain into the soil, preventing runoff into the street.
A $1,500 Wisconsin Public Service Foundation grant paid for almost all of the walkway, which will lead through the garden to a picnic table. The walkway will be ADA-accessible, which will allow people with wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to navigate the garden.
PRICE COUNTY - A Price County man won a $90,000 Badger 5 jackpot earlier this month.
The Wisconsin Lottery reports Rudolph Scotch of Catawba successfully chose the winning numbers of 2, 13, 15, 29, and 30 for the June 14 drawing. Scotch bought his winning ticket at Catawba Farm Supply on Highway 8.
