Moraine Park Technical College held an IT Careers Completion Ceremony on September 15. Nine students received Content Management Systems certificates, and one student Andrew Bond, also earned iOS Web Application Developer and Android Web Application Development certificates through the U.S. Department of Labor Interface grant program.
The celebration event began with a welcome from Dr. Fred Rice, Dean of Applied Technology & Trades, followed by congratulations and advice for IT Career Pathways from Associate Dean of Business & IT Lisa Pollard. Next came an introduction of the summer 2016 cohort student projects by Jeff Stueber, Business Management Instructor.
The cohort students of Andrew Bond, Tyler Kern, Yeakpan Kopah, Lori Roberg, Christopher Rowe, Eric Schepp, Clayton Schultz, Samuel Smith and Mary Zoromski, designed and built brand new websites for small business partners Urban Fuel, Downtown Deli and Fond du Lac Decorating. The students presented the beautiful, soon-to-be published websites and business partners were in attendance to experience and appreciate the excitement!
The ceremony wrapped up with congratulatory comments from IT Instructor Dominic Garofalo, Bonnie Baerwald, MPTC President and Anne Lemke, Grant Manager, followed by cake!
