Kudos to the Technical Division: MiCareer Quest 2022 a huge success! Thank you to the following Tech Division instructors and support personnel:

  • Welding — Rick Mathis, Ryan Deering, Matt Pickler, Brenna Glinski, Kaylei Johnson

  • Construction — Phil McCuien

There was lots of NMC representation from other areas as well and there was a great turn out of around 2,000 9th graders!

Kudos to Alex Bloye/Aviation staff and Diana Fairbanks/PRMC staff for utilizing their training to meet a challenging emergency situation with a safe outcome. Kudos also to Alex Bloye and Diana Fairbanks for handling the communication surrounding the incident. Well done!

Kudos to Cindy Deemer, the Commencement team and all participants and speakers: The new format seemed to be well received and it was wonderful to see a full Milliken Auditorium. Well done!

Kudos to Kari Kahler: Kari has gone above and beyond through this past academic year in establishing a NMC mentorship program with 5th graders at Blair Elementary. Over 30 NMC students have been mentoring a 5th grader and she recently coordinated with Blair to bring the 5th graders to tour NMC for the day and envision themselves as a Hawk Owl someday. The profound impact this program has had on not only the 5th graders, but the mentors as well, will continue to be seen for over their lifetime. This partnership and project would not have been possible without Kari. Thank you, Kari, for being a champion and advocate for NMC and lifelong learning in this community.
