Keyara’s Experience at MATC:

“I’ve had a good experience at MATC. I’ve met new people. Before MATC I wasn’t much of a talkative person. I feel like college has made me more of an open person.”

Why basketball?

“I have been playing basketball since elementary school. I started when my big brothers were playing outside and they would not let me play with them. They kept telling me I could not play because I was a girl.” That only encouraged her more to play basketball.” So I stuck with it and played all throughout high school. I was MVP in high school at Golda Meir.”

Jacob’s Experience at MATC:

“I took my water quality classes at the Mequon Campus and I can’t say enough good things about instructor Kathy Bates. She is super passionate about the program and a lot of people don’t know that the program just had their 50th anniversary. It’s such an important issue because everyone needs clean water.”

Why Tennis?

“I’m a lifelong tennis player. I’ve been playing since I was 3 years old. In high school at Shorewood, I got second place in Division II State doubles. I just love the sport. I play once a week, my family plays as well. So the first day of the semester I’m walking to my car and I see my old principal Rick Monroe and he has a tennis racket with him. We started talking and he said, ‘hey would you want to play tennis for us?’ It was such a coincidence that I had to do it and it has been an awesome experience.”
