It was pretty much the perfect Saturday for everyone here at Moraine Park Technical College!
During our community-wide open house this weekend at our Fond du Lac campus, we had beautiful weather; a chance to celebrate and interact with hundreds of guests from the community; gave away prizes; unveiled our new Career Employment Center; AND, we announced our exciting new Promise Program, which aims to provide free college tuition for eligible low income high school students.
A busy Saturday, for sure. But a great one!
Grab a pen. Write this down:
Eat cake and ice cream. Get face painted. Watch things spark and sizzle. Win prizes (like an iPad!). Moraine Park. April 8.
If nothing else, remember that quick summary! But, of course, that’s not telling the whole story. We have some HUGE things planned for our upcoming Open House. Here’s the details, and we hope to see you there!!
Every year since 2010, March 31st has been celebrated as the International Transgender Day of Visibility. This designation is to support trans communities throughout the world, to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people, and to fight cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge. Unlike the Transgender Day of Remembrance, which is recognized annually on November 20th, this is a day of EMPOWERMENT!
Graphic Communications students at Moraine Park Technical College learn to effectively use images and color together, as well as the importance of considering culture as it influences a design. One example out of the many great historic examples of the emotional power of color, and how that color is linked to a cultural symbol, is the story of why we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the color green and shamrock.
The Hartford Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting and Supper Club celebration event was held at the legendary Chandelier Ballroom on Thursday, March 2.
