Moraine Park Technical College’s new Dean of General and International Education, Caron Daugherty, brought her passion for technical education all the way to Moraine Park from Missouri. Daugherty worked as a faculty member, director of grants development and director of the honors program at Ozarks Technical Community College in Springfield, Mo., before joining Moraine Park in January.
Daugherty strongly supports the overall mission vision of the technical college environment. “Students are motivated and in some ways, they
demand and expect their time and money to show returns — either with jobs, lifelong learning, awareness and understanding, or all of those issues mentioned,” she said.
Daugherty wants to represent the areas of General and International Education in ways that allow Moraine Park students to gain what they need and the faculty to have access to what they need. “I also hope to be an ambassador for the programs with the greater community,” she said.
