NMC Outstanding Alumni Named

Two Traverse City business leaders have been named Northwestern Michigan College's Outstanding Alumni for 2013: Paul Britten, founder and CEO of Britten, and Peg Jonkhoff, co-owner of Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home.

Britten started his learning career at NMC as a nine-year-old taking pottery classes, preparing him for an eventual career in commercial art. Today, Britten's TC-based company is a provider of creative production services, event signage and large-format digital printing. Britten says one-third of Britten's 220 employees are current or former NMC students.

Jonkhoff graduated from NMC in 1976 and later earned a master's degree from Ferris State University through the University Center. She also taught for five years in NMC's business division. "NMC enabled me to further my education yet continue to live, work and play in this area I am blessed to call home," says Jonkhoff. "To see NMC's evolution over time is most impressive."

Congrats to Peg and Paul. I graduated from Ferris State through the University Center and was at the NMC ceremonies that Saturday when they received their recognitions. Both gave wonderful and inspiring speeches. I know Paul and his wife Darcy and they are so giving of themselves to the community.
