Moraine Park Technical College held its 25th Annual GED/HSED Graduation Ceremony on June 1. For the 2016-17 school year, 109 students received their General Education Development (GED) and High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) certificates.
Two of these individuals served as student speakers at the graduation event -– Danielle Patzan of North Fond du Lac and Lisa Stoffel of West Bend -– and each reflected on vastly different journeys that led them to this point.
We hosted our 2017 GED / HSED graduation ceremony on June 1 at Moraine Park Technical College.
We’re so proud of all the hard work each of these individuals has put in to accomplish this goal!
Here’s a look back at this year’s ceremony … and if you’d like to be next, we’d love to help! For more information about our GED program, click here.

In today’s modern age of Construction it is very important that we keep up with the constant changes in construction materials, codes, design software and industry standards. The Civil Engineering Technician – Structural program provides the needed education for these factors not only for new students coming right out of high school who want to get into the “Industry”, but also for those that have been in the “Industry” for years and need or want to stay educated.

On May 10, different members of the same club painted a shed and backyard fences for a home in Beaver Dam. And the day before, May 9, members from the Student Nurses Association, Donut Club, Beaver Dam Student Senate, and Welding club painted fences for a home in Beaver Dam.
More and more companies nationally and locally are trying to deal with data, and sometimes lots of it coined “big data.”
Demand is high for people who can manage and collect all this data or information; analyze it to spot patterns or gaps; draw conclusions and insights; and then be able to translate it so management and users can understand it to make better strategic or operational decisions.
