This past weekend Moraine Park celebrated Hispanic and Latino Heritage at Fiesta Beaver Dam and Fiesta de Independencia in Fond du Lac. Both of the events were wonderful, and the families enjoyed food, entertainment, and activities.
POW/MIA Recognition Day, September 21, 2018
National POW/MIA (Prisoner of War/Missing in Action) Recognition Day is September 21 (annually the third Friday in September) and I thought this would be a great opportunity to provide some of the history on the flag you may have seen featuring a silhouette of an individual before a guard tower and barbed wire in white on a black field with the words “You Are Not Forgotten”.
Moraine Park is celebrating Hispanic/Latino Heritage with multiple events throughout the months of September and October on all three campuses. We wish to invite all staff, students, and the public to celebrate diversity and enjoy cultural food and activities. The celebration begins on September 15th with Fiesta Beaver Dam and ends on October 15th.
For college students, an internship is essential now more than ever. Even though education after high school is important, and higher levels of education typically translate into advanced careers, a degree alone doesn’t directly mean skilled knowledge within the workplace, and students often lack the hands-on job experience that is needed to gain employment.
The TEDx event was an incredible opportunity for people who have a passion for making a difference to come together and connect. We heard from speakers who graciously shared their amazing life-changing experiences, trials, and triumphs.
