I am so deeply sorry that God took Carolyn so early in her life. Sending all my prayers and love to her family. Please know she will always remain in my heart. Carolyn and I grew up as very close 1st cousins. We were inseparable as kids and she was like my sister. Carolyn will forever remain in my heart. May God bless and keep her forever happy.

I was shocked to hear of Dr Shegelski’s passing. She was a dedicated educator who cared about all of her staff and students. We worked on several committees together at the MCTI. She was always so positive, enjoyed her job and was kind to all. MCTI will not be the same this fall without her. My condolences to her family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Carolyn was always dedicated to her students and staff. I enjoy the years we spent talking about her ideas on how she visualized the direction of the Vocational school and the importance on student learning the trades for a successful future. We’ll be truly missed.
