     A Moraine Park Technical College adjunct faculty member who takes the classroom experience to the next level for his students is now being recognized for his efforts. Nicholas Leifeld, vice president of corporate compliance for Serigraph, Inc., and adjunct faculty member at Moraine Park, has been elected a Fellow of the American Society for Quality (ASQ). Leifeld will be one out of approximately 600 in the nation who carries this distinction.
     “It is an honor to achieve ASQ Fellow status.  I would like to express my deepest sense of gratitude to the awards committee,” said Leifeld. According to Leifeld, he has been driven by two factors throughout his career: To share his knowledge of quality and experiences with others, and to expand his own knowledge on quality through research, training, and hands-on experience.         
     “Teaching quality courses at Moraine Park, achieving ASQ certifications, and becoming involved in local, state, and national organizations has given me the opportunity to meet these goals.  I’m looking forward to continuing my involvement with ASQ and these organizations,” said Leifeld.
     Leifeld is receiving this award of distinction within the world of quality for his outstanding contributions to the local section as membership chairman, for his membership on the Economic Case of Quality Committee, for his teaching activities at Moraine Park, for contributions to the State of Wisconsin as board member for the Wisconsin Forward Award, and to the nation as an MBNQA examiner.        
     “Moraine Park has more than 450 active adjunct faculty who bring their expertise and knowledge to our students via the classroom or online every day,” said Sheila Ruhland, Moraine Park president. “We are proud of Nick’s prestigious award and are grateful to have such an accomplished adjunct faculty member serving the Moraine Park District.”
