MANITOWOC, Wis. — Congratulations to Silver Lake College’s Matthew Goff and Lucy-Ann Muabe, who have been named to this year’s “Future 15” list by Young Professionals of Manitowoc County.
The “Future 15” honors 15 young professionals in Manitowoc County who have set themselves apart from other individuals in their professional and personal lives, are making a contribution to the community and will continue to do so in the future.
As dean of SLC Works, Goff oversees Silver Lake College’s new Work College model.
“I am so proud to be a part of this new, unique, cutting-edge program that begins preparing our students for the workplace from their very first day in college,” he said. “I also believe that SLC Works will have a significant impact on our local economy as a player in our workforce development efforts.”
Goff is a member of the Manitowoc and Sheboygan Business Solutions team, which works to support employers and employees in the community. He graduated from the Chamber of Manitowoc County’s Leadership Manitowoc County program and is a member of Young Professionals of Manitowoc County.
Muabe, career resources and student development specialist at Silver Lake College, helped establish the campus Clothes for Careers Closet. This initiative involves collecting and distributing professional clothing needed by students.
“My goal is to provide at least one or two professional outfits for each student who needs them for jobs, interviews or professional events,” she said.
Key achievements include co-chairing the college’s Diversity Take Force, co-leading initiatives to form a Council for Diversity and Inclusion on campus and facilitating the Multicultural Club. She is a member of Young Professional of Manitowoc County.
Goff and Muabe, along with the 13 other winners, will be honored at an annual banquet on Nov. 9, at Knox’s Silver Valley Bar & Banquet Hall in Manitowoc.
