Happy Holidays and end of the semester!

I hope the end of the fall semester went well for everyone last week! With final exams and projects over, I hope the holiday season and Winter Break is a nice respite before the spring semester begins on January 21. We’re looking forward to seeing returning students and new faces on campus for the spring semester!

The semester came to a close with Moraine Park hosting a Veteran’s Job fair on Wednesday, Dec. 12, organized by the Department of Workforce Development Office of Veterans Services. I joined Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefish and Department of Workforce Development Secretary Reggie Newson in speaking with employers and student veterans attending the fair. The event was an excellent way to connect job seeking veterans with new employment opportunities.  

Pictured on the far left is MPTC Dean of Students Scott Lieburn, Secretary Newson, Dr. Ruhland, and Lt. Governor Kleefisch on the far right.
Many student and College-wide accomplishments took place over the Fall Semester, and I’m excited to see continued successes in the second semester.  Again, have a safe and happy holiday!
