Women excel at college level

? Brittany Drengler, daughter of Bill and Kathy Drengler of Wausau, graduated in December from the University of Wisconsin School of Business in Madison with a degree in finance, investment and banking.

? Heidi Mrozek, a student at Northcentral Technical College, was one of four individuals nominated for the medical office specialist technical diploma.

Mrozek earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, worked for a period of time, and decided to return to school. She chose NTC in large part because of the college's commitment to the health field. She plans to enter NTC's radiography associate degree program after completing her technical diploma.

As part of her responsibilities as a district ambassador, Mrozek was set to represent NTC at a statewide conference April 17 and 18 in Madison.

The State Ambassador Program recognizes and rewards excellence among technical college students and seeks to develop greater public awareness of technical education in Wisconsin.

Each year, each one of the 16 technical college districts in the state of Wisconsin selects one student to be its WTCS State Ambassador.

Hockey 'Jacks are academic champions

The Wausau East Hockey Lumberjacks were crowned 2013 Academic State Champions at the state tournament in Madison.

The award, presented annually by the Wisconsin Hockey Coaches Association, recognizes the team with the highest overall cumulative grade point average. East garnered the award with a cumulative GPA of 3.76.

It is the second academic state championship for the Lumberjacks, who also won the award in 2006 with a 3.74 GPA. Last year, the Lumberjacks finished third with a 3.77 GPA.

Students showcase welding skills

Local students participated in a high school welding competition sponsored by Schuette Metals.

For the preliminary round of competition, students used a Lincoln Virtual Welder to run two welds that were digitally scored. The top three student participants from each Wausau East, Wausau West, D.C. Everest and Mosinee were invited to Schuette Metals to work with Schuette's welding academy instructors to weld an actual test plate.

Schuette Metals and other local welding supply companies and manufacturers sponsored a Manufacturing Days dinner and awards ceremony Feb. 6, and the students, their parents, educators, and other community members toured the Schuette Metals facility.

Winners of the overall welding competition were Taylor Miller and Jack Stacker from Wausau East High School and Marshal Shultz from Wausau Engineering and Global Leadership Academy.
