ST R Anlis Hartmann Discovers Her Calling


At Southeast, all health students must complete a clinical experience, which is a supervised hands-on internship working with real patients. Once students have completed their classroom requirements, they become board-certified by the state and are then required to find a clinical site to finalize their degree.


The first student to obtain a clinical experience at St. Anthony’s in Carroll, Iowa, Anlis wasn’t sure what to expect from a small town hospital. “The day I moved to Carroll was the first day I was there. The community is nice and very friendly which made –Anlis Hartmann it really easy to move there. St. Anthony’s is a catholic hospital, so on tech. “I was in complete shock when I top of being there with a nice place to live got the phone call that I got the job! It’s a and with nice people, it’s almost like God’s full-time night shift and I won’t have message saying this is what you need to to work weekends, holidays or on-call,” do. I feel like he lined it up for me.” smiles Anlis. As to whether she enjoys her

A Redwood Falls, Minnesota native, Anlis Hartmann had no inkling that she would be attending Southeast Technical Institute. In fact, she had never even heard of it until she met with a recruiter visiting her high school. “I really wanted to get into ultrasound but I couldn’t find a school,” remembers Anlis. “One of Southeast’s recruiters happened to make a visit and the receptionist knew I was looking for a school that offered ultrasound degrees so they called me into the office.” That fall, Anlis enrolled in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography-Abdominal Ob/Gyn program.

This has been a very life-altering experience. If you’re really set on something you want to do and Southeast has the program, come here. It’s going to be a challenge though! I spent many hours studying and crying but I made it through. There aren’t many places you can go and get out right away with a great job but you can do that here.”

Having finalized her required clinical, Anlis was happy to start her new life and career. After networking with a traveling ultrasound tech with Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, she secured a job as an evening ultrasound

new career? “Everyone is really nice and very helpful. I still have a lot to learn but the radiologists are very easy to talk with and I enjoy going to work everyday.” LB

DAYS Tech Prep Introduces Innovative Way to Test-drive Technical Education When you ask high school students what an associate’s degree is, most aren’t sure. In fact, when asked what the differences between a technical institute and a traditional college are, you get even more confusion. To help more clearly define what a technical institute is, and what kind of degree and experience you can expect to get, Southeast’s Tech Prep Coordinator Anna Fischer has established an innovative series of day camps to help solve the mystery. According to Anna, “My job as a Tech Prep Coordinator is to work with high school students to explain exactly what forms of higher-education are available to them in South Dakota. Sometimes, coming to a campus and actually getting hands-on experience makes my job much easier because they can literally experience what it is like to be a student on campus.” Anna along with other staff and instructors at Southeast Tech organized six TrYSTI Days for the 2009-2010 school year, even going so far as to pay for travel and providing lunch for attendees. “I wanted to make sure that everyone, no matter their situation, has the opportunity

to attend one of these camps. It is really important that students research their opportunities and understand them before making a choice,” she shares. “Although the majority of students come as a class from their high school, any South Dakota high school student is welcome to attend.” The scheduled camps include Horticulture, Scrubs (healthcare), Construction, Business, Computer/Manufacturing and Law Enforcement. Camps consist of presentations from industry experts, hands-on activities with Southeast instructors and staff and an explanation of the types of careers students can expect to enter with specific degrees. To experience a TrYSTI Day, visit and click the link to see a video of the TrYSTI Business day. LB Although the Horticulture, Scrubs and Business camps have already successfully run, three TrYSTI days are scheduled including Computers/ Manufacturing on January 27, Law Enforcement on February 24 and Construction on April 14. For more information or to register for these TrYSTI Days, contact Tech Prep Coordinator Anna Fischer at or 605.367.5467.

Full-Time Student and Mother Keeps Life On Track


“I moved to Boise, Idaho and worked as a personal trainer. However, when I did my internship I worked in cardiac rehabilitation and I fell in love with the heart. As it turned out I ended up getting married and having kids,” Erin shares. “When we decided to move here, I knew I couldn’t find what I was doing there and I wanted to do ultrasound so I looked into it.” After researching the Cardiovascular Ultrasound Technology program at Southeast, Erin made the decision to go back to school even though she was a young mother with two young sons, JJ who was 2 and Brandon who was just 1, to support and take care of. “After determining that Southeast had a great reputation because they produce some of the best sonographers in the country, I just wanted to come here. My parents


were totally on board and encouraged me to do it.”


Today, Erin has excelled in her program and is in the home stretch of finishing her Erin took the time to fill out a degree. With only a clinical experience scholarship application and was the that stands between her and her degree, recipient of a $1,000 scholarship Erin couldn’t be happier with her decision from the Southeast Tech Foundation. to return to school. “It’s tough being a mom and a student but I have a great family and good friends… “I feel very blessed to receive it’s not anything I can’t handle,” she these scholarship funds.

Jason Leigh Discovers His Niche and Finds Personal Satisfaction at Scherer Corrugating in Tea, South Dakota

“When I tell someone that I’m a machinist, they don’t understand what I do. However, there are very few industries that aren’t directly related to a machinist. Every tool a dentist uses comes from a machinist, so do appliances and what’s under the hood of your car. There’s really nothing a machinist doesn’t come into contact with, it includes artificial heart pieces and every rocket that’s been launched into space.”

Jason Leigh Helps Create Tools That Make the World go ‘Round Growing up in the state of Washington, Jason Leigh didn’t realize at that time where his destiny was pulling him. Having served in the Marine Corps as a military policeman for four years, he decided to make a change and followed his sister and brother-in-law to LeMars, Iowa to work in their new machine shop creating crankshafts for outboard engines. It was then that Jason fell in love with the Midwest, but determined he would need to get formal training to succeed in the field. After bouncing between school and work, he discovered the Machine Tool program


at Southeast Tech. “Southeast provided me with the opportunity to learn a hightech skill and apply it immediately after I graduated, which I did. I really believe if you have an aptitude for something and Southeast provides a course for it you’ll succeed. Their Machine Tool program is hands-down the best in the area.” After graduating, Jason spent two years working in the Sioux Falls area as well as teaching a class at Southeast. It was then that he was presented with an offer he couldn’t refuse with an aerospace company, taking him to Washington once

more. Not just any job, Jason was working to produce high-test titanium parts and prototypes for a fire suppression system. Although he loved the work and had a great title, it wasn’t enough. After just six months and with a phone call nearly every day from Bob Scherer, owner of Scherer Corrugating and Machine in Tea, South Dakota, Jason came back to Sioux Falls. Today, as a Computer Numerical Control Operations Manager for Scherer Corrugating in Tea, Jason works on developing materials for the agricultural industry, including biofuels, specializing in parts that were previously only offered overseas with a three-month wait. “My boss created a machine to crack corn as you harvest it and then when the ethanol

boom hit we stepped into that as well which has become the mainstay of our business.” So confident in his own education from Southeast Tech, Jason has since hired

As to whether Jason is happy with his decision to return to the Midwest? “I think I was destined to end up in Sioux Falls forever. It has allowed me to buy a home, get married and give a little bit of it back. It has been wonderful coming back to raise a family. Everything has just been perfect for my wife and I.” LB

Stacy Hotchkin

Horticulture Lab Specialist, Southeast Technical Institute STI Class of 1992 Degree: Horticulture Technology


In 1990, Stacy Hotchkin was working as a dietary supervisor in Sioux Falls. Although she enjoyed her job, it wasn’t her passion. Stacy shares, “I decided this wasn’t for me. My husband Dale was operating Dakota Lawn and Landscape Service, a business he had started with my sister who graduated from Southeast with a horticulture degree. I had been helping them when I got off from my job in the afternoon and I just fell in love with it. I decided I was tired of working inside and wanted to do what I really enjoyed doing.”


Stacy Hotchkin Rolls Up Her Sleeves to Share Her Love for the Green Industry

Upon making her decision to change careers, Stacy enrolled in the horticulture program at Southeast and earned her horticulture degree. She shares, “My intentions were to work full-time with

“I feel blessed to be able to work in the field that I really enjoy. Southeast provided good hands-on education that helped me succeed. Today, I love sharing my knowledge with students.”

Dale and our business, but then a Lab Specialist position opened up at Southeast and I applied for it and got it. It’s a great job because I get to share what I know. I just like being able to help people learn things.” Today, Stacy works at Southeast and has also helped the family business evolve into a full-service landscaping company. “We added more of the landscape design and installation services after I got my degree. We also keep a plant nursery with trees, shrubs and perennials. Owning your own business is nice but it’s a lot of work. It does give you flexibility and you definitely get the satisfaction of a job well done.” Not thinking of another job change any time soon, Stacy knows she has landed exactly where she wants to be. “I love my job because I enjoy being outside and working with plants. It’s no comparison to my previous job because when I have to sit and do paperwork inside I go crazy. I have to be up and doing something.” LB

SD Department of Labor and Business and Industry Training Team Up to Offer Opportunity

Partnerships, much like invention, often arise from necessity. This has been the case for the South Dakota Department of Labor (DOL)-Sioux Falls office, and Business and Industry Training (BIT), a division of Southeast Technical Institute. Over the last 18 months, many people in the Sioux Falls region have found themselves out of work due to the economic downturn. This left the DOL with many displaced-worker clients in need of direction, guidance and in some cases, hope.


Fortunately, due to the ongoing partnership and working relationship between BIT and the DOL, many of these displaced workers were able to transition into an educational or training program and take the first steps toward a new career. According to Danyell Skillman, Assistant Manager of the Sioux Falls DOL office, “We have about 400 dislocated workers in our program. Our workforce training


program provides opportunities for individuals who are laid off through no fault of their own, to assist them to go back to school or go to school and obtain a degree.” The partnership between the DOL and BIT is a natural fit. The DOL works with clients and provides funding for those that are looking for ways to improve their employability. BIT provides educational and training opportunities to help people prepare for employment in specific careers. With the two entities working together, the chances for positive outcomes increase greatly. Skillman adds, “Our program is life-changing for people, if they are part of our program and have the commitment. It can allow them to get the additional training or education to give them a better life for them and their families.” For more information about BIT, call 605.367.7619 or visit LB

Training Provider Each October, the South Dakota Department of Labor presents awards to individuals and agency partners that have had a positive impact on employment in South Dakota. This year’s recipient of the Outstanding Training Provider award is Jan Karpen, Administrative Assistant for the Business and Industry Training Division of Southeast Tech. Here is just one of the many positive comments from the nomination letter: “Jan goes above and beyond to provide assistance to the Workforce Training program.

Students in the Southeast Tech Nuclear Medicine program have achieved a 100% pass rate for the national Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Boards for the third year in a row. Students at Southeast Tech are required to take and pass the Boards in order to graduate. Pat Bortnem, Director of Health at Southeast Tech notes, “The Nuclear Medicine program at Southeast gives us many reasons to be proud, not the least of which is a 100% pass rate on the National Board Exams for the past 3 years. Program instructors, Doug Warner and Brett Peterson, instill in their students a drive to do their best academically and in skill performance as well as a sense of professionalism that is evident throughout their enrollment here at Southeast. The success on the boards is a credit to those individual Nuclear Medicine graduates who worked very hard to earn their registry and everyone at Southeast who assisted them on their journey through the program.” Check out the Nuc Med lab in a short video at; just click Academics and then Program Videos.

kallie Larsen Hometown: Valley Springs, SD Major: Graphic Communications Graduation Date: 2010

Why did you choose your major? I really love art and painting but I wanted a more stable career than being an artist would provide. I chose graphic arts because I can be a commercial artist and do what I love, but be guaranteed a paycheck and be able to support myself and a family.

What’s your advice for someone who is interested in a graphic communications career? Choose a career that will let you use your talent and make yourself happy. You don’t have to be a fine artist to be in graphics. It helps, but you can produce amazing pieces of art even if you’re not. If you can get a glimpse of the software we use, which is really intricate and powerful, you will love it.
