(Beaver Dam) Moraine Park Technical College recently held its first annual winter commencement ceremony. Almost 180 students received their diploma during the December 16th event at the Fond du Lac campus.
College President Bonnie Baerwald says the 2022 graduating class featured students who desire for learning and aspirations for a better life led them to Moraine Park.
MPTC’s 2021-2022 District Student Ambassador Wesley Kane was the student speaker, he said grit is not the prettiest way to get through life but it gets the job done. Kane adds whether it was staying up for 36 hours to finish an operation or burning the midnight oil submitting that essay, grit has gotten him to where he is today – a Sergeant in the Marine Core, a homeowner, a graduate of Moraine Park, and a better human.
