Alex Siedling, of Fond du Lac, joined the Wisconsin National Guard in 2008 as a high school student. He continues to serve as a sergeant in the National Guard and was deployed once to Iraq as a mechanic. Upon his return, Siedling decided to take his mechanic skills to the next level by enrolling in Moraine Park’s Automotive Technology program.
Siedling had a great experience working with Moraine Park staff when he decided to attend as a student veteran. “Moraine Park has done a fantastic job of making it extremely easy for me to get my benefits and work with payment due to reimbursement,” said Siedling. “Moraine Park staff members have passed along multiple emails for job offers for veterans and keep me informed if new opportunities arise.”
