Learning about tomorrow’s careers was the focus of our annual Toolin’It manufacturing summer camp held in June at Moraine Park Technical College’s West Bend and Jackson campuses. While sparks flew on Wednesday when the 13-16 year old’s took part in welding eagles, they fortunately didn’t fly when
For new students, transfer students and returning students with financial need, there are opportunities to work on campus within the Federal Work Study program. The Federal Work Study program is a Federal Student Aid program intended to provide jobs for eligible students who need financial assistance to attend college. This opportunity can help you to gain the necessary experience for a future career. For example, have you ever wanted to work in an office setting but only have experience working in fast food or factories?
What do you get when you combine Hawaiian shirt day and a pogo stick? Engagement! Well, I don’t know if you would get that every time you combined those two items, but this Spring that combination demonstrated staff engagement. Dr. Stan Cram, our VP of Student Affairs, was sporting a Hawaiian shirt to support our Foundation and student scholarships. The pogo stick was just for fun!
Speaking of engagement, as Moraine Park’s Director of Talent Management, let me offer an update on the employee engagement and talent management activities at MPTC.
Ready to tap into your full potential? Julie Wolf has advice: “Make a plan and go for it. The education you gain at college is something that no one can ever take away from you. Instead, it can help open up doors for you in the future. A lot of jobs are looking for an Associate’s degree or Bachelor’s degree, so it would be important to have that when looking for jobs.”
It’s that time of year again! With registration now open for the 2016 fall semester, many current and prospective students are diving into our course and program offerings and signing-up for classes.
With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at a couple of our favorite Moraine Park catalogs from yesteryear.
In April, we had several students compete at the State level Skills USA Competition. During the State Skills Competition, Devin Kissinger competed in the Industrial Motor Control Competition and placed 1st while Norberto Almaraz competed in the Residential Wiring Competition and placed 2nd. Both were offered spots to compete at the National Skills USA Competition to be held at the end of June in Louisville, Kentucky.
Alex Prunty is leading the pack!
Alex is a Moraine Park Technical College Alumni and owner/driver of the #11 Super Late Model we sponsor, and is an early leader in the 2016 Kulwicki Driver Development Program’s “Kulwicki Cup” point standings! Great job, Alex!
In the organization’s initial evaluation, which considered the seven drivers’ on and off-track performances from April 1 through June 30, Wisconsin’s Alex Prunty holds a 12-point lead over Maine’s Dave Farrington Jr. California driver Jeremy Doss is in third and closing the gap.
Moraine Park Technical College held an IT Careers Completion Ceremony on June 30. Three students received Content Management Systems certificates, two students received Website Security certificates, twelve students earned iOS Web Application Developer certificates, and ten students earned the Android Web Application Development certificate.
Last year, Moraine Park Technical College served almost 7500 students in Community Education. Of those, 36.65% were age 62 or older. We help older adults learn new skills by providing classes in subject matters from yoga to computer basics.
We hosted our GED / HSED graduation ceremony on June 16 at Moraine Park Technical College. On this special night filled with emotion, 21 men and women were honored.
We’re so proud of all the hard work each of these individuals has put in to accomplish this goal!
