But where she’d go to college wasn’t one — at least at first.Kelnhofer, of Brandon, had decided she’d go to Holy Family College — the only college she’d applied to.

She won a prestigious, full tuition scholarship to pursue a degree in actuarial science. Then, without warning, Holy Family announced May 4 that the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity had decided to close the college at the end of the summer term.”It was just very heartbreaking and a loss of words,” Kelnhofer said. “What am I going to do now?”

Marinette Campus leaders ask students urged to reflect on changes in learning – EH Extra

The last couple of months have been challenging for students of all ages, parents, and families as they adjust to learning in new environments.

They are vicious predators. “They will attack honeybees and they can destroy thousands of individuals. They basically bite their heads off and then carry their bodies back to feed their babies,” says UW-Green BayProfessor Michael Draney (Natural and Applied Sciences).
