Do you remember Hannah Koepp? She was featured in a foundation appeal video in 2016, as a scholarship recipient. You can view the video here.
Hannah’s family had been through some tough times after her mother was diagnosed with cancer, but she had big dreams for herself. The Moraine Park Foundation was able to help Hannah with a scholarship to help her start her schooling. At the time, Hannah was taking her general education courses with hopes of being accepted into the radiologic technologist program.
So, where is she today?
I caught up with the very excited, soon-to-be graduate at the Moraine Park Fond du Lac campus. After she passes her boards this July, she will officially be a radiologic technologist RT(r). She is eager to begin working in the field, to gain some more hands-on experience. She will be able to apply for jobs after graduation.
On May 19, Hannah will walk the Moraine Park stage and accept her diploma. But, she isn’t the only one in her family that is graduating.
“My sister Maddie is graduating from high school and my sister Zoe from middle school,” Koepp said. “It’s a milestone year for all of us.”
There is sure to be a fun Koepp family celebration this summer!
Hannah benefited from two scholarships through the Moraine Park Foundation. These scholarships are available thanks to contributions from generous community donors. And, students like Hannah are exactly who donors want to help, you will find her name on the most recent Dean’s list!
“I am so thankful,” said Koepp. “The scholarship money helped so much and allowed me to focus on my schooling.”
Congratulations Hannah on your upcoming graduation, we wish you success in your career!

Like many others at the onset of a new year, Pete Rettler looked in the mirror in late 1993 vowing to make a healthy change.
He was hoping to lose weight, and he and a friend ultimately made a bet: They both vowed to go for a run outdoors every single day of the 1994. No matter what.
And they did. Day after day. Rain. Sunshine. Snow. Anything. Everything.
Though both men completed this healthy New Year’s challenge, it turns out that stretch of 365 days was only the beginning for Pete.
Heather Evenson, MSN, RN, has been employed with Moraine Park for almost three years as a member of the nursing team. Her great leadership is obvious to those who work with her or are students of hers. But there is more to Heather’s contributions to nursing and her students that often goes unseen.
Moraine Park Technical College has named the late Nancy Steinke of Fond du Lac its 2017 Distinguished Alumnus.
Nancy Steinke graduated from Moraine Park in 1975 and received a diploma as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and then obtained her state licensure. She grew up in Fond du Lac and was a 1969 graduate of St. Mary’s Springs Academy.
The Moraine Park Foundation recently hosted its Gourmet Dinner with a special “Black & White” theme.
The event was held on the College’s Fond du Lac campus and helped raise funds for student scholarships and emergency financial assistance. In fact, we’re excited to say that this year’s Gourmet Dinner raised nearly $30,000 for these important causes.
Guests at the event dressed in black and white attire and enjoyed a six-course meal prepared by Moraine Park Culinary Arts students and faculty. They also had the opportunity to enjoy entertainment by local talent, bid on auction items, and try their luck at the event’s popular wine-cork pull and heads-or-tails 50/50 raffle. Take a look at photos from the event below.
