As a 2012 graduate of the Electrical Power Distribution (EPD) program, Gordon Gossink has found himself unexpectedly back at Moraine Park. He is happy to be back, he is happy to be alive. On August 24, 2017, working as an Apprentice Lineman, he and his foreman were removing grounds to energize a new line. At 80 feet above the ground, he had just finished the routine task of removing the first line. When beginning to remove the second ground, he was struck by 20,000 volts of electricity.

Across the country, there are millions of college students striving to be a better version of themselves.

In fact, the one thing that all college students could probably all agree on is that college, in general, is far from easy. However, if you walk the hallways of any of the three Moraine Park campuses you will see a robust list of student names on the wall. If you’re wondering, there are 1,163 to be exact. (Yes, I counted.)
