GRCC Retiree Biography: Margaret Sesselmann

Margaret Sesselmann has been at GRCC since 1994 (25 years). She started in Business and Technical training and moved to Manufacturing in 1998. When asked about her favorite story about GRCC she said there  too many to list but she enjoyed learning about RC cars, sailor’s knot strength and many other materials and items that students tested and reported to class. “I’ve always been proud of being a member of faculty at GRCC. I firmly believe in the mission of the school and I know that many students, myself included, benefit greatly from the small class sizes, the directed teaching, the hands-on labs, etc. It’s been wonderful. Outside of classes, I participated in Career Quest, representing GRCC. I loved showing middle and high school students some experiments with plastics. Seeing their excitement was precious.”

In retirement Margaret is planning to move to Newaygo where her small cottage was replaced with a lake house.  Margaret expressed her appreciation for the faculty association and what it has done for the employees at GRCC.  “I have been so blessed to have a job that I truly looked forward to going in, working with students one-on–one and as a whole class. I always told my students that I wish for them that they can find a career that they love and make a living doing that.”
