Shark Industries makes $80,000 welding equipment donation to MSC Southeast

Friday the 13th is a lucky day for MSC Southeast as Shark Industries makes $80,000 welding equipment donation

Shark Industries LogoNext time the phone rings as you're leaving the office for the day, turn around and answer it. Even if it's Friday the thirteenth.

That's what MSC Southeast Dean of Trade and Technology Travis Thul did late on a Friday afternoon in January. He was on his way out the door for a three-week trip away from the college when the phone rang. "I almost didn't answer, but for some reason I felt like I should get it," he says.

It was lucky that he did. When he picked up the phone, Paul Reschke of Shark Industries out of Rockford, MN, was on the other end of the line. He said he had eight full sized pallets of brand new welding equipment available for donation.

"Mr. Reschke told me that he had been trying to give this material away to other colleges, but everyone else had failed to pick up the phone or wanted them to go through the donation piece by piece and only take the parts they wanted," explains Travis. "I checked in very quickly with our Welding Program lead instructor, Casey Mann, who told me whatever happens, just take it all!"

It was indeed a lucky day for Minnesota State College Southeast as Shark Industries made a donation of $80,000 worth of welding supplies and equipment to the college. 

"We were looking for someone who could benefit from being able to use these materials, and we thought -- who could benefit more than a local college that teaches welding? This is in turn beneficial for both industry and the community," says Paul Reschke. "So we were delighted when Minnesota State College Southeast not only accepted the donation, but also made immediate arrangements to come pick it up themselves."

Casey Mann and Truck Driving instructor Tom Gierok came in on their next day off, January 20, and drove one of the college's semi trailer trucks to Rockford. "They were expecting us and were really helpful. They had us loaded up in 10 minutes," according to Casey. 

Shark Industries - LogoIt took about two weeks to sort everything out -- including Saturdays. "It was like Christmas around here," says Casey. "Every time we opened up a pallet it was something totally new."

The donated items were immediately distributed among the Auto Body Collision Technology, Automotive Technology, Chemistry, CNC Machine Tool, Industrial Technology, and Welding programs in both Winona and Red Wing. Even the college's maintenance department benefited from the donation.

"We received a lot of welding rods, a lot of consumables for welding. Helmets, gloves, safety glasses, face shields, goggles -- we'll be using that stuff for years," notes Casey. "We were able to share some of the donated items with area high schools, too."

Just as an example, the welding program might spend $1000 to $1500 a semester on welding rods. Saving that money can make a big impact on the program. "Now if I need something, that money's available, but if I don't need it, the money goes back into balancing the college's budget," Casey states.

"Donating these items to someone who can put them to good use is just the right thing to do. But having the college come pick it up themselves was incredible -- it won't be forgotten next time we have excess inventory like this," says Paul Reschke.

"We are just overwhelmed by the generosity of Shark Industries in making this gift to Minnesota State College Southeast, and we hope we can make this a long-term partnership," says Travis Thul. "I still can't believe how lucky it was that I picked up that phone call!"

Red Wing Welding Lab

MSC Southeast to offer new one-semester, college-credit welding certificate on Red Wing campus

Check the local help wanted ads for welding jobs and you'll see that this is an area of very high demand. That's why Minnesota State College Southeast has expanded its welding program to include a new one-semester, college-level certificate option on the Red Wing campus.

MSC Southeast has recently opened a newly-renovated welding lab in Red Wing, which is fully equipped with workstations to teach a variety of basic welding processes. The Welding Technology certificate includes hands-on training in stick, MIG and TIG welding as well as lecture coursework in safety, theory, and blueprint reading.

"The welding certificate on the Red Wing campus is an excellent introductory credential for a career in welding. It also offers the potential to transfer into our more rigorous diploma program at our Winona Campus," according to Travis Thul, MSC Southeast Dean of Trade and Technology. "Furthermore, we are working with Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount to allow transfer into their diploma program. This will give our students multiple options to continue their education or to enter industry after one semester of training."

As part of the certificate, students will be required to participate in an on-the-job internship to demonstrate professionalism and proficiency in the workplace.

"Our goal is to be responsive to the needs of business and industry throughout the Red Wing community," says Dr. Dorothy Duran, President of Minnesota State College Southeast. "The new welding certificate is the beginning of up-and-coming technical programs on the Red Wing campus." 

The welding certificate on the Red Wing campus will become available for the first time starting in Spring semester, which begins on Monday, January 9, 2017. 

Apply now for admission to the college! New Student Registration will take place on Friday, December 2, 2016 and Thursday, January 5, 2017. To apply for admission, go to: www.southeastmn.edu/apply.

Southeast Cosmetology Academy greets cancer patient with Hello Gorgeous!

"Hello Gorgeous!" greets surprised client at Southeast Cosmetology Academy

Hello Gorgeous 1Little did she know, an unexpected day of pampering awaited Ginnee Siegel when she checked in for her facial appointment at the Minnesota State College Southeast Cosmetology Academy in Winona on Thursday, October 27. 

As she entered the salon, the gathered students and instructors greeted her with a unison chorus of "Hello Gorgeous!" Cameras flashed, newspaper reporters took notes, and countless smartphones were raised to document the moment. Ginnee's first reaction was to look behind her and see if they were looking for someone else. No, they weren't! 

Cosmetology instructor Jodi Heim had nominated Ginnee to be treated to the "Hello Gorgeous!" red carpet experience. Hello Gorgeous! is a non-profit organization that provides complimentary, professional makeovers and cosmetic education to women battling all cancers. 

Hello Gorgeous 2

Jodi Heim's former salon in St. Charles was a Hello Gorgeous! affiliate. Minnesota State College Southeast is the first college in the country to become an affiliate, and Ginnee was selected to be the first guest in what is hoped to become a monthly offering.

A native of Winona, Ginnee now lives in the Chicago area, where she taught children with behavioral issues for most of her career. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, she returned to Winona for treatment at Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Her niece Gina Glasspoole was in on the surprise and helped Jodi coordinate Ginnee's schedule so that she would arrive on time and be free all afternoon. 

Hello Gorgeous 5

"My niece told me they had called her with two free facials and offered me one of them. I almost didn't make it because I had to see the doctor in the morning," said Ginnee, who was convinced to come in for the appointment anyway. 

"The look on her face when she walked in was priceless," student Tina Daffinson told the Winona Daily News. "It takes a lot of positive thinking to try and stay strong, be positive, and surround yourself with positive people."

Ginnee has been a client of the cosmetology salon for at least 25 years. "I love coming here," she said. "It's really enjoyable and it's nice being around young people. People have always been considerate and helpful -- and it's good quality work." 

First up was a facial, followed by a manicure and pedicure. While enjoying a lunch donated by the Steak Shoppe, Ginnee viewed three outfits selected especially for her from Maurices. After lunch, she tried them on and chose her favorite pieces -- a new jacket, blouse, jeans, necklace and boots -- all of which she wore home at the end of the day.

After lunch, instructor Jodi Heim styled Ginnee's auburn wig and a second wig, which was another gift for her to take home. As Jodi expertly clipped and sprayed them, it was hard to remember they weren't Ginnee's natural hair. The final step in her day of pampering was a professional makeup application. 

More than a makeover

Hello Gorgeous 3The Hello Gorgeous! experience isn't about a beauty makeover in the traditional sense. It's more about caring for women who are facing tough challenges and giving them a "day off" to be pampered. And it can be an learning experience, too.

"It gives us an opportunity to teach [cancer patients] how to apply eyebrows if they don't have any, how to make it look like they have lashes when they don't, or how to work with a wig," Jodi Heim told a reporter from the Winona Post. "It's also an opportunity for us to educate them on questions that they might be afraid to ask otherwise."

After getting her photo taken with the students, Ginnee was escorted to her car by students who were only too happy to help her carry her gifts, which included a wealth of beauty supplies donated by L'Oreal, Redken, Pureology and Mary Kay as well as flowers and chocolates presented by the students. 

"It's been awesome! I've never had anything like this happen before," Ginnee exclaimed. "I'll remember this forever. I feel very special supported, cared for, and loved." 

She plans to come back again soon. "We'll see you again -- maybe with a few less photographers next time!"

MSC Southeast planning to open new applied engineering lab, host Red Wing Maker Space

Travis Thul
Dean of Trade and Technology Travis Thul tours the applied engineering lab at MSC Southeast in Red Wing -- before the installation of a donated CNC machine.

Note: The new Applied Engineering Lab will be open for public tours during Manufacturing Week in Red Wing on October 19 and 20 from 1 to 2 pm. RSVP to the Red Wing Chamber of Commerce at 651-388-4719 or frontdesk@redwingchamber.com if you would like to attend.

In addition to a new name, new mission, and new vision, Minnesota State College Southeast is in the process of developing a new way to use some of its industrial arts and technology resources, including both equipment and lab space.

The college is exploring a partnership with Red Wing Ignite, Red Wing Makers, and the Southeast Perkins IV High Schools Consortium to leverage those resources towards opening a community applied engineering laboratory on the Red Wing campus, to be known as The Maker Space @ MSC Southeast.

"We have an opportunity to offer our community a whole new way to connect with the college," says MSC Southeast President Dr. Dorothy Duran. "By hosting a Maker Space, we can open our doors to local hobbyists, entrepreneurs, industry, artists, high school students, and our own college students who would like to have access to a range of engineering and manufacturing resources." 

Students assemble equipment
Work study students and faculty members join forces to help install new equipment in the Applied Engineering Lab.

The joint venture is in the conceptual phase of development, but a newly re-furbished 2000 square foot lab is already beginning to fill up with equipment. This includes, but isn't limited to, a CNC machine donated by Lockheed Martin and the Department of Defense (valued new at $91,000), a row of CAD/engineering computer workstations, a 3D printer, and power woodworking tools.

"In addition to the equipment we have already acquired, we want to focus on getting laser cutters, water jets, milling capabilities, 3D scanners, and additional 3D printers," says Travis Thul, MSC Southeast Dean of Trade and Technology. "We are still building the space and installing equipment, and there are a lot of logistics to work through."

"Red Wing Makers are excited to find a home at MSC Southeast. This space will foster educational growth and the exchange of ideas and techniques," comments Beau Brewer, a representative of Red Wing Makers. "We can expect outstanding, creative projects to emerge from this commonwealth of skills and ideas."

Brian Cashman, Southeast Perkins IV Consortium - Secondary Grant Coordinator, adds, "Southeast Minnesota has a legacy of business and industry innovation, strong high school and community connections, and a fantastic resource in Minnesota State College Southeast. On behalf of the 22 local school districts represented by the Southeast Perkins Consortium, I am excited to be involved in this partnership."

College lab by day, Maker Space evenings and weekends

During regular school hours the lab and equipment would be used to offer for-credit college classes in CNC, welding, and other applied engineering careers. Plans call for the Maker Space to be available to the community evenings, weekends, and weekdays during non-instructional hours.

"Maker Spaces are vital to growing local economies. They provide needed tools and resources to help entrepreneurs turn their ideas into viable products," comments Neela Mollgaard, Executive Director of Red Wing Ignite. "The Red Wing area is very fortunate that Minnesota State College Southeast is forward thinking. Together, the community will make this collaborative initiative a reality!"

"One of our highest priorities in Red Wing this year is to create more technology training programs to meet the area's workforce needs," Dr. Dorothy Duran concludes. "We hope that creating The Maker Space @ MSC Southeast will be the beginning of many new initiatives."

91-year-old student takes on Truck Driving at MSC Southeast

 Permanent link

Louise Spencer Story - 1

Honk if you're 91!

Truck drivin' woman Louise Spencer becomes a media sensation when she takes a lesson with instructor Tom Gierok at MSC Southeast

 Media Coverage:

Just a few days before her 92nd birthday, Louise Spencer ticked off one of her "bucket list" items: driving an 18-wheel tractor-trailer truck.

Louise, who lives at Chandler Place in the Twin Cities, had always dreamed of getting behind the wheel of a big rig. Her late husband was an over-the-road trucker for 30 years, but she had never driven one herself -- though she secretly wished she could. 

When Webb Weiman heard about her dream, he knew he could help make it come true. His California based non-profit, JUMP!, helps seniors achieve what's left on their bucket lists and inspires them to reach for their dreams.

Webb's first challenge was to track down a truck and someone who could teach Louise how to drive it. He lucked out on his first call.  MSC Southeast truck driving instructor Tom Gierok's immediate response was "Let's do it!"

Tom Gierok - Louise Spencer - Webb Weiman

With the day set for Friday, September 2, Tom needed to find a truck with an automatic transmission.  He turned to one of his past students, John Brom of Riverland Trucking, who donated the use of a truck for the day. It was hooked up to MSC Southeast's signature tractor-trailer, which sports colorful college program graphics.

When Louise arrived at the college on Friday afternoon, she was besieged by news crews. TV stations from La Crosse (News 8000), Rochester (ABC 6 News), and the Twin Cities (KARE-11) made the trek to Winona, along with newspapers from Winona and Rochester. 

Louise handled the media attention like a seasoned professional, patiently answering questions through several interviews. Then the big moment came. She was surrounded by cameras of all sorts -- TV cameras, still cameras, iPhones, and a host of go-pro cameras -- as she rolled her walker across the pavement to board the truck. 

There she found a surprise arranged by Tom Gierok. On the driver's side door, he had attached a decal with "Louise" spelled out in pink script. 

Once on board, Tom showed her the various controls of the truck. Without hesitation, she started up the truck, then took it for a circuit around the Norris P. Abts Transportation Center's large parking lot. Louise appeared completely confident as she drove off to the college's 27-acre truck driving range, with photographers, reporters, and college staff chasing behind on foot and by car.

"She's pretty gutsy," Wanda McCarra, one of Spencer's daughters told Chris Rogers from the Winona Post. "Everybody sees her as this sweet old lady, but she's a firecracker. She's got a very gentle appearance, but she's pretty determined."

After the drive was over, Louise and Tom returned to their starting point. There they found a row of MSC Southeast staff members holding up letters reading "H-O-N-K  I-F  Y-O-U-'-R-E  9-1-!" Louise obliged with a final blast of the horn.

As Louise climbed down from the truck, MSCS President Dr. Dorothy Duran presented her with an honorary certificate of completion. Webb Weiman had arranged a "Keep on Truckin' " birthday cake for the occasion and all gathered to sing "Happy Birthday."

"I feel like I'm going to wake up tomorrow, and it's a dream," she told Kyle Farris from the Winona Daily News. "But there's no way I could have dreamed this." 

Then it was on to one last interview with the press. 

"I think these big trucks on the road are beautiful," she exclaimed to Rochester Post Bulletin reporter Brian Todd. "Think about it. What would we do without them? They are so important."  

Tom Gierok, who has taught thousands of students in his long career at the college, will always hold a special place in his heart for Louise. He said, "If you have a dream or a wish and you're willing to pursue it, you can do anything. I feel so fortunate to be part of this."

When the teacher becomes the student

When the student becomes the teacher - and the teacher becomes the student

John Huth - brass bellAt a place like Minnesota State College Southeast, you expect the students to learn from their instructors. But the tables were turned last summer when Band Instrument Repair (BIR) instructor John Huth traveled to Kansas City to learn how to make brass instrument bells from his former student, Mike Corrigan.

After graduating in 2000, Mike founded two band instrument businesses in the Kansas City area:  BAC Music Center for retail and repair and B.A.C. (Best American Craftsman) for instrument manufacturing.  

"Mike imports artist and student level instruments, but he is quickly advancing as a sought-after builder of custom trombones and trumpets," says John. "He is preserving many hand-building techniques that are being lost to mass production. He has an enviable historic instrument collection and is constantly expanding his knowledge of instrument making." 

While repair technicians remove bell dents, it is unusual for a technician to make a bell from scratch; the tooling and skills are specialized to manufacturing.  Bells are made by forming a flat sheet of brass into a rough shape, joining the edges with brazing, and then final-forming the brass while it spins rapidly on a lathe.

"Just like a violin, how a brass instrument is made plays a huge role in its performance," John. "It has always been a goal for me to learn to make brass instrument bells and Mike enthusiastically agreed to work with me. Another one of our grads, Matt Simianar, also helped teach me bell making."

EngravingIn addition to Matt, Mike Corrigan currently employs Red Wing grads Eric Rempe, Kristy Filippini, Ethan Sherman, and Darrel Wilson.  John says it was great to connect with BIR grads in the workplace. "Darrel Wilson showed me the art of engraving, a skill he has developed since he started working for BAC.  His incredible work can be seen on BAC's Facebook page and website."

John is proud to note Mike's advocacy for musicians. After Hurricane Katrina, Mike equipped a van with repair tools and took it to New Orleans to repair instruments for free.  He has been back multiple times and was honored with the key to the city.  He promotes his own city, locating his business near the heart of Kansas City's historic jazz district.  And he's an active member of MSC Southeast's Band Instrument Repair Advisory Committee.

"It was so exciting for me to see the student become the teacher and the teacher become the student," John concludes. "I was so lucky to have gone to Kansas City to learn from Mike and his staff. He is as generous and kind as it gets."

MSC Southeast shows kids "How Things Work"

Kids on campus - 2016

Minnesota State College Southeast recently hosted WSU Children's Center Summer School Age program participants on campus as part of their "How Things Work" week. 

"The field trip allowed these children to get a glimpse into worlds that they may not know exist. In addition to being fun, it may have planted some seeds in an interest they may pursue in future years," states School Age Coordinator Karen Sullivan.

Throughout the day they were shown how a car runs, how a truck hauls, how technology is used in healthcare, and how changing the color of your hair is a science.

2016 Carpentry House

Real World Experience: Southeast Technical Carpentry Program announces Open House

 

Southeast Technical's Carpentry Program students and their instructor, Ralph Roemer, have worked for the whole school year to bring blueprints to reality, building a single-family home off County Road 15, on Homer Valley Road. They will celebrate with an Open House on Saturday, June 18 (10 am - 1 pm).

 
The new 1600 square foot, single-story home, is tucked into the hillside of Homer Valley. It features 2 bedrooms and three bathrooms.

 
As in previous years, a special feature of the home is custom cabinetry built by the students to design specifications provided by the owner for the kitchen and bathrooms. The students build the cabinets from "scratch" and finish them in the carpentry lab at the college before installing them in the home.
Homeowners can expect to save a substantial amount of money on the cost of carpentry labor by working with Southeast Technical to build a new home. The college is seeking a prospective home owner to build a project house in the 2017-2018 school year.

 
Plans are set for the next home construction to start this fall, but it's not too early to start planning to build a home starting in September 2017. Interested parties should contact the college as soon as possible to see if working with our carpentry program might be a good fit for them. Call the college at 507-453-2700 and ask to leave a message for Ralph Roemer.

 
Southeast Technical's Carpentry Program graduates can look forward to an improving job market as the construction industry continues to rebound. A 2014 study ranked carpentry among the top 10 high growth, high pay occupations in Minnesota through 2022. Carpentry was listed at #4 in Minnesota with a median salary of $45,881.14. Carpentry was ranked as the #1 high growth, high paying occupation in Wisconsin with a median salary of $42,350.

 
Southeast Technical offers diploma and associate degree programs in carpentry, and also provides certificate programs for carpenters who are seeking additional training. To learn more, visit the Carpentry program page at www.southeastmn.edu.

Tuition set to decrease at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical in 16-17

Tuition set to decrease at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical in 16-17

Student, Winona campus 2016The saying goes that "what goes up, must come down." But most prices seem to go up, up, up! 

That's not the case with the cost of tuition at Southeast Technical. For the past four years, tuition has been frozen at $167.31 per credit. But this year tuition is actually going down to $165.64 per credit. 

The good news gets even better once the effect of financial aid is factored in. Changes to the Minnesota State Grant Program that take effect this year are projected to benefit students at state colleges as well as state universities so that all students who benefit from the State Grant will see a decrease in net tuition. 

For MnSCU students receiving state and Pell grants, the estimated average annual tuition cost for attending a state 2-year college full-time is $894. 

Also new this year is the MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program. Through this program, tuition and fees are FREE to qualifying Minnesota high school graduates who enroll in career and technical programs at Southeast Technical for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years (up to 72 credits). This grant money is limited and funds will be distributed on a first-come, first served basis according to the date of application.

The Two-Year Occupational Grant covers actual tuition and general fees remaining after Pell Grant and the Minnesota State Grant have been applied to the student's account. Families with an adjusted gross income of up to $90,000 are eligible for this grant, so it is designed to make a college education more affordable for middle-income families.

"Our state colleges and universities remain the lowest cost, highest value option in higher education in Minnesota," says Steven Rosenstone, chancellor of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. "Affordability and accessibility ensure that our colleges and universities can be places of hope and opportunity for all Minnesotans."
