“I’m excited to showcase my writing skills in my career, because I learned from Dr. Leichtfuss that good communication leads to career advancement.”

Evan Kehrmeyer, a May 2018 graduate from the Electricity Program at Moraine Park Technical College, never expected to enjoy, much less benefit from taking a writing course. “I assumed the English Composition I course at Moraine Park would be like every other English class I had ever taken,” Kehrmeyer stated. “I was pleasantly surprised to learn so much about writing style, communication in the workplace, the 4 C’s of writing, and how to conduct research.”

Kehrmeyer took the course with Dr. Rebecca Leichtfuss, who has been teaching at Moraine Park for almost 20 years, and he quickly realized how valuable the course would be. Kehrmeyer shared, “This was one of the most beneficial courses I’ve taken. I recommend that everyone take this course because Dr. Leichtfuss will convey the information in an interesting way and challenge you to be your best.”

The owner of Kehrmeyer Construction, LLC in Mayville, Evan Kehrmeyer knows he made the right education choice. He loves being an electrician because it requires both mental and physical work. “I knew I could never go to college for 4 years because I need to be out in the field working with my hands, but I also knew I couldn’t do a mind-numbing, thoughtless job the rest of my life.” Kehrmeyer recognizes that he gained real-life knowledge at Moraine Park, including in the English course. “I’m excited to showcase my writing skills in my career, because I learned from Dr. Leichtfuss that good communication leads to career advancement,” Kehrmeyer said.
