NWTC Marinette and UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus proudly celebrate an alum making a difference
Jill Kramer's career path has always focused on building up the people around her. Inspired by a childhood friend who benefited from the way the criminal justice system and social work system worked together, Kramer began studying corrections at NWTC after graduating from Menominee High School in 2004.

“Every single instructor that I connected with was super personable. They all seemed to care and put in the extra time to support me” - Jill Kramer
