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!
