LTC Honors Graduates at Spring Commencement



TraceyTemme and Dylan Temme


Tracey Temme and Dylan Temme, walked across the stage with their degree in hand from LTC on May 16. The father and son duo, both residents of Manitowoc, earned associate degrees in the Electro - Mechanical Technology program and each finished with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. However, both took different paths to ultimately meet on the stage of LTC spring graduation ceremony.


Tracey was in the process of a career change when began his LTC program in January of 2012, initially taking classes on a full time basis.  Electro-Mechanical Technology involves working with automated manufacturing equipment, learning and maintaining complex systems of assembly, control measurement, and material processing of manufactured products. A year into the program, Tracey began working full time in Facilities Maintenance at Nemak in Sheboygan and switched to taking classes on a part time basis. Tracy appreciated the flexibility that allowed him to take classes around his work schedule and still complete the program in just a little over three years.


"I had a pretty full schedule but I enjoy hands-on work and fixing things," said Tracey. "The classes were fulfilling and taught me a lot that I've been able to apply in my work."


Dylan's route was a bit more traditional. After high school, Dylan earned an associate's degree from UW- Manitowoc but wasn't sure what type of career he wanted to pursue.


"Watching my Dad go through the Electro-Mechanical Technology program really spiked my interest," says Dylan. "I thought I would really like it so I enrolled full time in the fall of 2013."


While in the program, Dylan met an instructor who helped him land a part time job at Kohler Co. in the Machine Build & Process Automation department doing automation cell design and robotic programming.


"I started last June and I really enjoy the robotics programming," says Dylan. "I begin working full time at Kohler Company next week and my program has prepared me for the challenge. It couldn't have worked out any better."


Dylan and Tracey may have taken different routes to get the same result but the journey was worth it. 


"It's a really great feeling to share this with Dylan," says Tracey. "I am happy for me and I'm proud of Dylan.  To be able to celebrate together like this is a really great experience."
