Two people, four degrees, one big honor

Brian and Brenda Stewart came to Red Wing as individuals to build careers. They ended up building a family, too, and building reputations for excellence that inspire others.

"As proud alumni, Brian and Brenda can truly say that Minnesota State College Southeast brought them to Red Wing, and how glad they are that they have become part of the community," said Katryn Conlin, the college's communications director, in nominating them for the 2017 Outstanding Alumni of the Year award.

In 1993, Brian Stewart came here from a small town north of the Twin Cities to study electronic music technology and learn how to build guitars at Minnesota State College Southeast, then known as Red Wing/Winona Technical College. He earned an Associate of Applied Science in Electronic Music Technology in 1995 and a diploma in string instrument repair in 1996.

Brenda Zill came from Reed, Mich., to study band instrument repair in Red Wing, earning her diploma in 1998.
