MPTC Student Of The Year Went Back To School

At 48-years-old Becky Powell of Cedarburg is hardly your typical Moraine Park Technical College graduate. She got her pin for nursing last December and will be honored as Moraine Park Student of the Year during a Student Awards Banquet on May 13th. Powell graduated from high school in Maine in 1986 and for years worked for a local health system. But she says opportunities were passing her by because she didn’t have a college degree. She says her sister-in-law graduated from Moraine Park in 2011 and talked her into going to MPTC. She says Moraine Park was a great fit for her, small but mighty. Now she’s working as a nurse in a surgical unit at Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls. Her oldest daughter Sarah Powell graduated from the UW-Whitewater last December and teaches math at the Fond du Lac High School. For more click here
