Muskego-Norway Warrior Pride!
Welcome Warriors to your very own Warrior Nation. Here is where you will find information and open doors to connecting with all Muskego-Norway Alumni and supporters since 1956. This connection point will serve as the information hub for all Warrior Nation activities. Here you will find news and blog articles about your fellow Warriors, as well as information about upcoming Nation events. We invite you to join Warrior Nation today. We ask that you keep information up-to-date and remain active in our Warrior community. Don't forget to learn more about opportunities to support the Nation by clicking the Get Involved tab above to volunteer.
Thank you for your support, we look forward to building a vibrant Warrior Nation.
Muskego High School is working to create an opportunity to celebrate and recognize MHS graduates who have moved on from their time there and made significant contributions to making our world a better place. It is our belief that it is important for our current Warrior students to be aware of the amazing opportunities that await beyond graduation and that through living the Warrior’s Way, no dream is too big.
The main criteria to be considered is that the graduate must have made a significant contribution to the welfare of mankind and is living the WARRIOR'S WAY.
Examples might include but are not limited to: significant community service, researcher, author, service in our military, business executive, prestigious recognition, etc.
THE WARRIOR'S WAY – WHERE CHARACTER COUNTS
PRIDE · HUMILITY · RESPECT · INTEGRITY · RESPONSIBILITY

Francesca (Frankie) Mazza
Class of 2016
1. What activities, clubs, or organizations were you involved with during high school?
I was part of French National Honor Society, National Honor Society, Science Club and French Club
2. What were you best known for in high school?
I was known for being very studious. I loved to read and learn new things, and was always up for a challenge.
3. What have you been up to since graduation?
I just finished my sophomore year of college at Carroll University where I am studying both Biology and Psychology. I started off as an Environmental Science major but switched to Biology and Psychology to pursue my goal of becoming a neurologist. At Carroll, I am part of Eco Club and Tri-Beta - an honor society for students studying Biology. I plan to go to Costa Rica next summer to study sustainability and ecotourism.
4. Tell me more about SPUR - how you came to be interested in the internship, how you were chosen, and what you are looking forward to.
During my freshman year of college, my biology professor told us about the Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) at the Medical College of Wisconsin. It's a highly selective program, and I have always been interested in research, so I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to get my foot in the door. I applied and was selected to help further the research on molecular and cellular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity. I am incredibly excited to be working with and learning from a faculty member at MCW in the field of neuroscience! I am looking forward to learning new techniques and to see what it's like to be a full-time researcher.
5.Advice for current students? Shout out to any teacher or staff member that encouraged/influenced you while in high school?
My advice for current students is to take academics seriously, but also allow yourself to take a break when needed. Have fun and unplug from technology every once in a while - take up some new hobbies! Also a huge shout out to my amazing AP Psychology teacher, Miss Pyne -- the first person to teach me about the brain and the one who made me realize that I want my career to focus around neuroscience. And another shout out to Madame Fox, for letting me be in her classroom all day and for giving me the courage and confidence to believe in myself and pursue my goals. I wouldn't have been accepted for SPUR if it weren't for these two incredible women.
Muskego Engineering Warriors Place and earn Awards at Badger State Science & Engineering Fair
Muskego Engineering students proved that not only do they have their fingers on the pulse of current science and engineering problems, but they also have excellent communication skills to tell people about their work. After hours of judging at the Badger State Science & Engineering Fair, these senior students placed in multiple categories, won awards, and earned further competition opportunities.
Hunter Bindas and Abigail Warwick won 1st Place in the Environmental Sciences category with their project Development of a Grass Variety as a Way to Remove Nitrogen from Water Environments. They also won the Philip Streich Memorial Award (the fair’s highest award) and the Stockholm Junior Water Prize, an opportunity to progress to an international fair.
Ryan Gillespie and Andrew Grady won 1st Place in the Physics/Math/Computer Sciences category for their project Space Debris Removal via a Rotating Tether.
Kyle Ignasiak, Elise Prange, and Alyssa Rutzinski won 2nd Place in the Engineering category with their project Redesigning River Turbines to Produce Electrical Energy More Efficiently. They also won the American Meteorological Society Award, the United States Air Force Award, and the Stockholm Junior Water Prize at the Capital Science & Engineering Fair.
Levi Leonard and Dawson Grohall won 3rd Place in Engineering with their project Application of Graphene: Water Filter with Removable Sleeves. They also won the RICOH Sustainable Development Award, the Stockholm Junior Water Prize, and the MacGyver Award from STI Engineering & American Science & Surplus.
C.J. Herrera and Jacob Calvino won the International Society for Optics and Photonics Award for their project A Device to Minimize Bat Mortality from Wind Turbine Collision.
Noah Entringer and Matt Jensen were awarded a chance to apply to the GENIUS Olympiad for their project, Improving Efficiency of Wind Turbines by Altering the Blades.
These students will move on to further competition to represent our state at the Stockholm Junior Water Prize and the GENIUS Olympiad. All of the Muskego High School students were praised for their variety of topics and their enthusiasm in wanting to solve pivotal world problems through their research and development of very applicable solutions.
Their teacher, Karen Lindholm-Rynkiewicz, has been proud to guide these students through their research processes.
