MATC Transforms the Lives of Three Generations

Helping improve the health of children is a passion for Dr. Kristin (Pasko) Haglund, whose work has been published nationally and recognized with local and national honors. Dr. Haglund, a nursing faculty member at Marquette University, got her higher educational start at MATC. She followed in the footsteps of her parents.

At an awards luncheon, she met Laura Bray, MATC’s vice president of College Advancement and External Communications, and shared her family roots – and how those roots intertwine with MATC.

MATC has led many members of the Pasko family down new roads, starting with first-generation college students Robert and Judith Pasko, who attended in the 1960s and 1970s. They inspired their children, nieces and nephews, and even friends to expand their horizons and pursue their educational dreams.

Many family members have followed Robert and Judith Pasko's path by beginning their career journey at MATC.

The family members on the illustration below all attended MATC. Some took a few MATC courses before launching into a new career, while others graduated from the college. Several graduates transferred their credits to another institution where they achieved additional degrees.
