MPTC's latest service-learning project

The Great Pink Pumpkin Run will be held on Saturday, October 18 at 10 a.m. on Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus. This event was planned by a Business Practice Firm course in the spring semester of last year and has been carried through with this year's class and six other program area courses. The idea was generated from one of MPTC's business instructors, Jeff Stueber, who has a passion for helping the community and we collaborated with other program instructors to enhance the activities at the upcoming event.

Just to give you an idea of the collaborative program courses involved: Graphics Design students originated the motivational posters that you will see under the Photos/Inspiring Posters tab on the website below, Culinary Arts will be making pink pumpkin cookies to sell at the event, cosmetology students will be providing pink hair extensions and nail polish, early childhood students will be providing children's activities, medical assistant students are doing free blood pressure screening, and the corrections program will be helping man traffic and safety issues, and student senate are helping paint the 200 pumpkins.  We even grew our own pumpkin patch!!
