My name is Melissa Schmidt. I’m a Transition Specialist at Moraine Park Technical College, which means I’ll be helping students move from their GED/HSED into programs, and also helping dual credit high school students move into programs. I’m also encouraging and helping students who may have been part of a certificate program or technical diploma transition into an AAS degree. I offer that extra bit of time and attention that some students may require to navigate resources our College has to offer so that they may be successful.
Speaking of attention …
March is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Month, and this topic has a lot of personal meaning to me.
In fact, I’m soon going to be running 152 miles in six days (think six consecutive marathons!) for this important cause. Yes, 152 miles!
You’re probably wondering two things: “Why?” and “How!?”
Well, I’m here to tell you, and, I hope you’ll be inspired to help those battling MS in your own way, too!
