Tell us about yourself.
I’m from Oakfield. I was home schooled until seventh grade and then went to Oakfield public school. I love music and would perform at every school singing event. Spending time with my family and friends is my favorite. My sisters are my best friends, we do a lot together. In my spare time I enjoy writing meaningful journal/blogs and photography.
What made you decide to go into the Cosmetology field?
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for college, but I’ve always had an interest in beauty and making others feel beautiful. I like all aspects of hair, nails and makeup.
Why did you choose MPTC?
It is only about 20 minutes away from home. Also my hairstylist went here in the Cosmetology program and it has good reviews!
What do you love most about the program?
I love learning new techniques and knowledge I didn’t know before this program.
What are your plans after graduation?
I was already offered a job at the salon I go to. But I do have 10 months to figure it out!

Janine Williams is a rare gem. Like many of us, her journey has had many twists and bumps in the road, but her defining feature is her shining personality and positive nature. As a student in Moraine Park’s substance abuse counseling program, her a goal is to share her story to help others, and she told me with confidence that God brought her to Moraine Park.
Nancy Osorio-Diaz, a medical assistant student from Juneau, has volunteered at the Boys & Girls Club in Fond du Lac playing medical terminology games with children, at community events taking blood pressure, and her personal favorite, at the Dodge County Women, Infants, & Children (WIC) clinic in Juneau. She is bilingual and able to provide Spanish-speaking skills, which makes her a huge asset!
In early November, our student involvement specialists, Sam Saeger (Fond du Lac), Melanie Schroder (West Bend), and Lisa Manuell (Beaver Dam), took students from each campus to the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA) conference.
What was the purpose? To select future campus entertainment!
They joined schools from across the country at this event that consisted of talent showcases, exhibit halls, and many different entertainers.
It was at events like this in previous years that students helped to select entertainers such as Mark Toland the mind reader and comedian John Cassidy.
Sam, Melanie, and Lisa will attend another conference this spring with new group of students. They will then use the top choices from both conferences to make their selections for the 2019-20 school year and possibly beyond.
Beaver Dam student who attended were Trina Anderson, Noah Bille, Alana Clark
Derek DeChant, Abby Muenchow, Nicole Nowicki, and Aurelio Rosas.
Fond du Lac students Kerwana Clayborn, Alli Mayer, Susie Rodencal, Jerod Splan, and
West Bend students Dominic DeLaura, Julia Gruber, Thomas Holman, Leah Pietrangelo, and Peggy Rider.
Stay tuned for upcoming student life event announcements to see what entertainers were selected!
