June 12, 2017

Emmy-nominated Actor, Voice Actor, Accomplished Screenwriter, Director, Producer and Author, John Ratzenberger to speak at closing session at MSCA CONNECT 2017 Education Conference!

John Ratzenberger is best known for playing mail carrier Cliff Clavin on Cheers and as the only actor to voice a character in every Pixar movie including Hamm in Toy Story and Mack in Cars.

But it’s a little known fact that prior to his acting career, John worked as a house framer, archery instructor, deck hand on a fishing boat and even helped build the stage at Woodstock. He knows firsthand the value of learning a trade and has worked tireless for the past 20 years to support the skilled workers who are the foundation of our economy.

He produced and starred in the Travel Channel series John Ratzenberger’s Made in America, wrote a book about his travels to American manufacturers, testified to both the House and Senate on the need for skills training in schools, and continues to not only call out the shortage of skilled workers that threatens our country as a whole, but champion the honor, work ethic and contributions of the American tradesman.
