Lori (Larson) Wiest

Lori chose Southwest Tech because she wanted a degree in less than four years. Southwest Tech was her local choice for a technical college education. When asked what difference Southwest Tech made in her life, Lori responded, “It is my life. I am a graduate of the class of 1979 and worked at the college for 35 years. All of my children attended and graduated from a Wisconsin Technical College, two from Southwest Tech.” Lori fondly remembers her instructors and classmates as well as basketball games, the volleyball team and all the fun we had participating in events. “The small college community created a family like atmosphere. SWTC changes lives for the better.”
