Non-Traditional Successful Graduates

Maren Almstedt, WITC Welding Graduate  


Maren Almstedt has found a niche in a realm—welding—that has long been considered a nontraditional career field for women. But the 2005 graduate of WITC Superior’s Welding Program isn’t bothered by labels. In fact, she’s quite happy.

Brian Schmidt, WITC Medical Assistant Graduate  


Brian Schmidt had always been interested in a medical career. When he was laid off from the job he’d held for 15 years, Schmidt decided to pursue his medical dream. He enrolled in the year-long Medical Assistant program. Schmidt now says he wouldn’t trade his new career for anything.
