My name is Kim Dickinson. I graduated from the Business Management-Supervision associate program in 2015. I am what may be called a “late bloomer.” It took me 30 years after graduating from high school to realize I wanted more out of my work life than what a high school diploma could give me. I was at a point in my life that I could think about what I wanted and do what needed to be done to achieve my goals. That’s how I ended up enrolled at Moraine Park. It fit all of my needs.
When I started at Moraine Park, I told myself to get involved in student government or some other club so I could get the entire college experience. My shyness kept me from taking that first step. It was one of my instructors nominating me for Student Ambassador that changed my life.

When did you get to Florida? Where in Florida were you?
We left Wisconsin on September 8. We first stopped in Lake City for our safety orientation, then drove to Orlando for one night. We got up the next day and drove to Sunrise, let me remind you this is when the hurricane was coming through, then drove to Fort Lauderdale where we stayed for about a week. After that, we went to Homestead for a day and then worked in Naples for a few days. On September 24 we were released from the hurricane work in Naples and a few of us headed to Texas for a couple weeks to help wreck out and rebuild a 210’ lattice tower.
