John Wagner, Chairperson of the WISDOM JONAH End Child Poverty
Campaign in Chippewa and Eau Claire counties. Wagner is a retired Chief Engineer from Cray Research in Eau Claire.
“ I strongly believe that youth represent the next generation of leaders. I have had ten
years of experience teaching young adults who live in poverty. This combined with
my multiple interests in modern science that informs us about how poverty affects
human brain development, have led to my strong interest in child poverty and the
impacts poverty has on adult outcomes.”—John Wagner
