Even though February is the shortest month of the year, Moraine Park Technical College found many ways to honor Career and Technical Education (CTE) month, celebrated throughout the nation in February. One of the ways Moraine Park recognized CTE was through the annual Moraine Park Association of CTE (MPACTE) awards banquet, held Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Beaver Dam Country Club.
The banquet recognized individuals and organizations for their dedication to and excellence in career and technical education. The following individuals were honored with awards: Stephanie Lueck of Campbellsport for Outstanding Support Professional; Kathy Vandemark of Kewaskum for Outstanding CTE Leader; Terri Wilkens of Mayville for Outstanding Instructor; Amy Patterson of Beaver Dam for New Instructor and Bonnie Baerwald of Fond du Lac for Community Involvement. The Business Awards of Merit went to Kondex Corporation for supporting Moraine Park.
Throughout the year, MPACTE supports student achievement by awarding eight $300 scholarships to full-time Moraine Park students and five $200 scholarships to part-time Moraine Park students. Scholarships are cosponsored by both the Moraine Park Federation of Teachers and the MPACTE organization.
