Bonnie Baerwald hands Maximus Award plaque to winner Tina Brochtrup

Some big congratulations are in order for our latest Maximus Wolf Pack Award winner: Tina Brochtrup, Moraine Park’s assistant to the Vice President of Finance and Administration.

Wait. What is the Maximus Wolf Pack Award, you say? Glad you asked.

It’s a quarterly award given out to staff  based on peer to peer recognition. At Moraine Park, we want to empower our employees and recognize each other at work for performance that goes above and beyond normal job duties.

Needless to say, Tina certainly fits that criteria!

Here’s a bit more about our latest Maximus Wolf Pack Award recipient, in her own words:

What’s your background?

I have an extensive background in administrative support.  Before being hired at Moraine Park, I worked at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College as the assistant to the project manager for the TAACCCT Round 2 grant. Round 2 was designed to promote skills development and employment opportunities in the advanced manufacturing field focusing on dislocated workers due to foreign trade, and veterans.  Prior to NWTC, I worked for seven years in Appleton at Principal Financial Group as the assistant to the assistant director, who manages the office that administers the Employee Stock Ownership Plans for Principal.

How long you’ve worked at Moraine Park?

I have been with Moraine Park for 1 ½ years.

What’s your favorite part of the job and Moraine Park?

There are so many good things about working at Moraine Park.  Not only do I really like what I do, the people here are great and make it a pleasure to come to work.  The people here genuinely care about each other, the students, the community, etc.  It is really amazing and I’m proud to say I work here.

Any thoughts on getting this award?

I’m so honored to have even been nominated. I was just helping out and to be recognized for it really makes me feel appreciated and valued. I feel that way every time I look at my award. It is such a good feeling.

Congrats again to Tina! And perhaps you could be the next standout employee at our college! There are plenty of job opportunities at Moraine Park to explore!
