Moraine Park’s 2022 Year in Review

For Moraine Park, this past year has been one of monumental change, growth, and excitement. Before we jump into the new year, let’s take a look back at some of the College’s greatest hits of 2022!

In January, we kicked off our year celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, (MLK) Literacy Week where we donated more than 500 culturally responsive books to three local elementary schools.

In February, Moraine Park and Kreilkamp Trucking combined efforts to create the Wisconsin Regional Truck Driving Academy (WRTDA), a unique career opportunity to help respond to workforce shortages. The first cohort graduated in April.

With Spring came the historic decision made by the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents to allow technical colleges to offer Associate of arts and Associate of science degrees. Since then, Moraine Park has signed articulation agreements with Lakeland University, UW-Oshkosh, and UW-Green Bay.

In May we had almost 800 graduate candidates eligible to receive their associate degrees and technical diplomas at the Spring Commencement Ceremony.

In August, we were visited by Governor Tony Evers, who hosted a roundtable discussion on our Fond du Lac campus. 

The very next week, the College excitedly hosted the return of Tech Knowledge College summer camp. 60 middle schoolers joined us on campus for three days of hands-on fun.

In September, we announced two new programs coming to Moraine Park: IT Applications Support Specialist & Finance & Insurance Services Specialist.

To end the year on a high note, we celebrated the monumental passing of our $55 million referendum and held our first annual winter commencement ceremony recognizing nearly 100 graduates.

We look forward to another fantastic year in 2023!
