Posted on September 29, 2017, in Academics, Events

General McLane graduate Pamela (Marszalek) Mikulcik ’98 returned to her alma mater on Thursday to speak to high school students in the Academy of Medical Arts and Engineering.

The ‎Independent Forensic DNA Consultant spoke to students about careers in forensic science. Mikulcik also talked about some cases she’s been involved with, including Wheaton’s Baby Hope and the slayings of Krystal Jean Baker and Kristina Wesselman.

Mikulcik is also a certified lead & technical assessor for ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB).

General McLane’s Academy of Medical Arts and Engineering was created to prepare students for careers in medicine and engineering. Through partnerships with local businesses, hospitals and universities, the curricula will be enriched with hands-on activities designed to provide students with quality, live-learning experiences.

The Academy of Medical Arts and Engineering initiated a planning phase in 2011-2012 as a result of a district strategic planning goal to enhance STEM education.
