Steve Kramer

My journey started back in 2000. I was working at Cub Foods as a dairy/frozen assistant manager. My roommate was going to Herzing University and introduced me to the world of technology. It was time for a change. I graduated in 2003 with an associate degree. I finished my bachelor’s degree in 2011. I work as a network engineer at a company in Madison, Wisconsin. I have been there six years. Herzing University prepared me for a lot of the things I see on the job today.

Four Herzing University -- Orlando students have been awarded cash scholarships based on their altruistic goals. The students entered videos outlining how receiving a scholarship would impact them, their families, and ultimately the community in a scholarship contest that began last May. Lauren Sperling, physical therapist assisting, Jason Davis, physical therapist assisting, Kenneth Malone, nursing, and Michael Saylor, physical therapist assisting, were the winners.

Fourteen students submitted three-minute videos that were posted on the campus Facebook page. The top four videos with the most votes were winners.
Lauren Sperling ($2000) – Selected as best video by the Campus Scholarship Committee
Jason Davis ($2000) – Most votes received on Facebook
Kenneth Malone ($500) – Among the
top four vote-receiving videos on Facebook
Michael Saylor ($500) – Among the
top four vote receiving videos on Facebook

Campus president Heather Antonacci applauded the winners calling them hard-working and deserving.“I have the privilege of seeing first-hand the impact education has on an individual,” Antonacci said.

“As adult learners, our students have learned to overcome the obstacles that may get in their way and stay focused on their dreams and professional goals. It is gratifying to observe the transformation that occurs and know that the university played a role in their success.” Enrollment was not necessary for entry, but finalists and winners were required to begin classes on or before January 9, 2012 to claim scholarship money. A total of 14 students entered the contest. Visit Herzing University – Orlando on Facebook! (Click on videos)

March 18, 2011 – More than 700 people attended a gala fundraising event with guest and legendary comedian/actor Dr. Bill Cosby, at an event sponsored by the Toledo Urban League and Herzing University – Toledo, at Parkway Place in Maumee, Ohio. Herzing University students directed traffic, worked set-up and break-down, and contributed to security operations for Dr. Cosby at a rally held the next day at Smith Park which attracted more than 2,000 community members. The focus of the events was to raise community awareness for taking responsibility for children, schools, families and neighborhoods.

“Our students were the volunteer leaders,” said Greg Guzmán, campus president. “We are proud of how they represented Herzing University and our community.”

Ohio state representative Michael Ashford commended Herzing students for their volunteer participation and civic awareness during a visit to campus a few days after the event.

More than $85,000 was raised to support efforts of the Toledo Urban League.

Rick Smith

Even as a kid, Rick Smith, now 49, always worked. Whether it was a paper route or cooking at Crandall’s, a restaurant in his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, Smith preferred a paycheck to the kind of extracurricular activities that normally attract college bound high school students. So it was not surprising that after a year of general studies at Madison Area Technical College, he was ready for something a bit more practical. When Smith realized that acquaintances at Wisconsin School of Electronics were attending for two years and getting great jobs upon completion, he was ready to make the switch.

Smith recalls that his high school work ethic helped frame his higher education goals: “I saw a fast path to pertinent education in electronics…not containing the extra fluff that had no bearing on a focused education. That was really appealing to me,” he says.

Smith graduated from Wisconsin School of Electronics, now Herzing University, in 1983 with an associate’s degree. Sure enough, he got that first good job as an X-ray technician, repairing equipment for the next year. By 1984, Smith found himself at the right place at the right time with the right skills. The Internet was just beginning to break out into popular use and the search for people that could help computers and other devices “talk” over data networks was intense.

Smith moved to the University of Wisconsin for a job in network engineering.

“Computer networking was in its infancy,” Smith recalls. “UW was tying its computers together on the administrative side. [The WSE program] prepared me for that. There are all kinds of courses now but back then the only thing that employers could look for was electronics degrees. An electronics background gave me the skill sets to get into computer networking. The electronics engineers were looking to work at bigger corporations, not be in the trenches at the UW”

Smith worked at the university until the year 2000. During his time at the institution, his experience creating computer networks led to his involvement with the InterOp trade show. InterOp is something of a Mecca for computer network techies. While interoperable computer networks are taken for granted today, in the early 1990s they were the stuff of prototypes and trade show demonstrations. Smith got involved with a University of Wisconsin team demonstrating such a network at InterOp and later, perhaps leveraging some of his original familiarity with X-ray equipment, began working at a vertical industry conference on a network specifically designed to support radiologists. Smith says much of that work took place in the open systems environment, particularly with tools created to monitor network reliability and performance.

One thing led to another and after several years Smith and colleagues from the radiology show network had the basis for forming their own company: INOC.

Smith calls quitting his job at UW and starting his own company a “big gamble.” It appears to be paying off, however. Today, he is Vice President of Operations of the 40-person company, headquartered in Northbrook, IL, with core operations in Madison. Smith is responsible for all NOC operations and service deliver work at the firm. Since starting INOC in 2000, Smith admits that the going has not always been easy. After a fast start, the bursting of the dot.com bubble produced hard times felt far beyond the Silicon Valley.

INOC has endured, however, and Smith continues to give back to career education. INOC made internships available for Herzing students over the years and has hired 12 Herzing graduates as full-time employees.
