CU in the Workplace
Our October 2018 "CU in the Workplace" video features Schuett Farms and alumni couple, Brian and Melissa (Lepak) Schuett '04, who first met in middle school in Mukwonago.
Together, they later worked Brian's family's farm as he used proceeds from sweet corn sales to help support his Carroll education. Brian studied business administration and organizational leadership and Melissa studied math and secondary education. These days, Brian works in ITS and Melissa, who previously worked as a high school math teacher, join Brian's parents to help keep the 60-year old family business thriving. Now parents to three children—who hope someday to continue the family business—Brian and Melissa shared with us a day on the farm. Here they use some of their business, math, and creative skills learned at Carroll to engage customers in the Halloween season of pumpkins, a corn maze, gourd launching and other family fun.
