Karst MPTC Distinguished Alumnus

“Education is a gift,” says Lisa Karst ’12, Moraine Park Technical College’s 2014 Distinguished Alumnus and the 28th recipient of the award. “As with all things, you get out of it what you put into it. How you choose to apply yourself will directly impact what you receive. That applies to everything in life – your family, job and relationships.” A lifelong learner, community service advocate, mother and wife, Karst is an assistant vice president/regional operations leader at National Exchange Bank & Trust, in Beaver Dam. She holds a number of Moraine Park certificates, including Principles of Management, 2001; Organizational Management, 2007; and Human Resources Development, 2009. Additionally, Karst earned her associate of applied science degree in Leadership Development from Moraine Park in 2012. Karst was recognized as the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus during Moraine Park’s Student Awards Banquet.
