Moraine Park honors students at annual awards banquet

by dritger1. June 2015 10:44

The hard work and academic achievement of Moraine Park Technical College students was recognized during the College’s annual Student Awards Banquet held May 8 at The Golf Club at Camelot in Lomira. 

Denise Fitzsimmons, the 2015 Moraine Park Distinguished Alumnus Award recipient, spoke to the attendees about tackling the challenge of change. Fitzsimmons graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from Moraine Park in 1981. After a 19-year tenure with Conley Publishing, she became a director of advertising. In 2004, she, along with another Moraine Park Distinguished Alumnus Mary Beth Bockhorst and sister-in-law Jill Huizenga, co-founded “InSpire,” a Dodge County monthly magazine sharing the successes of women. Fitzsimmons said her education at Moraine Park gave her “the foundation I needed to diversify and branch out into other areas of the business world.” She went on to add, “Don’t be afraid to travel the road that may not be familiar. You are equipped to face the challenges.” 

The 2015-16 District Student Ambassador Award was presented to Kayla Ebert of Burnett. Ebert is enrolled in Moraine Park’s Human Resources program. She will assume her Ambassador role in fall, taking over for 2014-15 Student Ambassador, Kim Dickinson of Beaver Dam. 

Moraine Park presented the 2015 Student of the Year Award to Ben Werner of West Bend. This honor was given to Werner, a student in the Electrical Power Distribution program, for exemplifying the College’s core abilities and excelling both in and outside of the classroom. He spoke about his experiences with leadership, classmates and faculty while attending the College. “Moraine Park encouraged me to step out and take on leadership roles that’ll help me succeed in my future career,” said Werner. “Whether the leadership role came in a classroom setting during a tactical activity or in the hallways, instructors always encouraged the student body and me to become involved and strive to better ourselves.” Werner found transitioning back into academics was initially a challenge but said adjusting to his new life as a student became easier with the help of his classmates. “I feel like Moraine Park works hard to develop the family feeling within their programs so students learn to work together and help each other throughout their college career.”

Technical Achievement Awards were presented to 12 students. To receive this award, recipients must be enrolled in a one-year technical diploma program and have maintained a 3.25 GPA. They are judged on classroom participation and other contributions and characteristics that exemplify an outstanding student. Recipients were:  Nicolas Malchow of Allenton; Jeremiah Alderden of Beaver Dam; Jacob Beck, Matt Grady and Zach Lauterbach of Cedarburg; Kevin Boudwine of Germantown; Jason Diels of Horicon; Keith Rhinert of Milwaukee; Logan Scheel of Oshkosh; Jordan Wendlandt of Randolph; and Andrew Passmore and John Pocian of West Bend.

Little encouraged the graduates to look at everyday as a gift, to lead by example and to do good in the world. “All of the time you have spent learning the technical skills you will need to enter the work world is important,” said Little, “but success requires more than education. Success also requires passion and it requires a positive attitude. So, be passionate about what you do. Communicate with others. Take risks. We are put in this world to do something remarkable. So, do something remarkable!”  

Jung, who welcomed the Class of 2015 and their guests to the ceremony, expressed to the graduates how perseverance, determination and the support of others had gotten them to this point. “As you head out today, ready to take that next step in your life, take a moment to reflect on all of the people who have supported you on your educational journey,” he said, “Take a moment to embrace all that this day brings.”

Congratulations to each of you.”

Moraine Park announces welding competition winners

by dritger14. May 2015 08:33

Area high school students squared off in a welding competition recently at Moraine Park Technical College’s Beaver Dam campus.

Supervised by Moraine Park Welding Instructors Larry Clark and Gary Watry, students from Horicon and West Bend high schools were judged on three different welding processes: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) and Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW). 

“We started this competition to give area high school students a chance to stretch their experiences and compete in a welding skills competition similar to the state SkillsUSA competitions,” said Clark. “Participants also had an opportunity to see what a career in welding can offer and how Moraine Park’s program can build the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in the industry.”

Contestants were required to demonstrate their skills from a list of competencies, including safety, measurements and blueprint reading. Winners of each of the three processes were determined by accuracy of set-up, defects, general appearance, bead size, safety and clothing.

Tanner Reichert, a senior at West Bend High School, took first place in the SMAW and GTAW competitions. The GMAW competition ended in a tie, with Reichert and Alex Mages, also a senior at West Bend High School, both taking first place.

Other participants from West Bend High School included sophomore Nick Fry and senior Yajaira Perez. The students were accompanied by their teacher, Jacob Gitter.

Horicon High School students competing in the welding competition included seniors Ben Spindler, Dryden Watry and Dylan Bunkoske and juniors Brett Pride and Chris Panetti. They were accompanied by teacher Mark Boehmer.
