MHS, IWU grad Willmert joins Health Careers staff

Posted on Jul. 15 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
Marion Regional Career Center would like to welcome Julie Willmert, an MHS alumna, to our staff!

Willmert, a registered nurse, is joining us as preceptor for our health careers program, an important role engaged with our students and community businesses and agencies where our students are doing clinical rotations. 

She will also serve as a liaison for the Grow Nurses program, a partnership between Indiana Wesleyan University, Ivy Tech, and MRCC that aims to help recruit and train the next generation of nurses.

Willmert will also be the athletic trainer for the Giants athletics department. (Click here to learn more about her role with the Giants.)

"Julie is coming home to her Giant roots and will be a wonderful asset to our MCS family," MHS Principal Keith Burke said. "She will bring professionalism and knowledge to our athletic programs and Career Center. We are excited for Julie to join us."

Willmert has a bachelor's degree in nursing and in athletic training from Indiana Wesleyan University. She has served as nurse manager at Life Center Medical Clinic in Wabash for several years, along with serving as the athletic trainer for Mississinewa High School. 

Welcome to the NEW Marion Regional Career Center!

Posted on Jun. 23 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
On June 22, the Marion Community Schools Board of School Trustees officially approved our new name, Marion Regional Career Center.


With the closure of the Tucker facility, we are taking on a new identity, which represents expanded opportunities for students from Marion High School and the surrounding county schools. A portion of the Marion High School campus is being remodeled to accommodate our career-tech education programs. We are excited about the possibilities this location offers for more MHS students to get involved with our programs, which are expanding in the coming years to include new programs including aviation, HVAC, and more.

Also coming soon: Giant Bistro

Our restaurant run by the culinary arts program will also have a new home and a new name. The Giant Bistro will be taking over a vacant restaurant on the Bypass, the former K Bistro, 2201 S. Western Ave. This location only blocks away from the high school will offer greater opportunities for community partnerships (such as catering for The Refinery nearby, an ongoing relationship that will only grow stronger with the easier logistics), as well as a much more visible and easily accessible location, right amidst other restaurants and businesses on one of the city's major thoroughfares.

We are looking forward to the new opportunities that all of these changes bring for our students and staff, along with the community!
