At first mention of the words “technical college,” the mind’s eye may conjure up an initial image of sparks flying in a welding lab, or wrenches turning in automotive classrooms, or any number of scenes of manufacturing.
While Moraine Park Technical College certainly has these scenarios playing out each week, there’s a different scene also taking place. One of which many people aren’t aware: classrooms and simulation centers filled with students developing, learning and studying to become registered nurses. For many, the undeniable impact of these studies and the time spent at Moraine Park not only paved the way to help save the lives of others, it’s changing the lives of students, too.

Are you an adult considering college? Have you withdrawn from school or are you hoping to transfer to a new school?
Students who have withdrawn from school without completing a degree may find themselves in some difficulty. They may owe money on student loans, but not have the degree or diploma they need to find a career that will leave them the ability to pay the loans back.
Moraine Park scholarship recipients had the opportunity to meet donors who are helping make their education more affordable. Scholarship luncheons held in Beaver Dam and West Bend, allowed donors to connect with students who are benefiting from their generous gifts and hear how the scholarships are making a difference in their lives.
